34 Perfect Business Ideas For Young People by uwaifojoseph(m): 10:40am On Nov 20, 2013
We all want to provide something more for our family, but we may not
want to compromise on
being a “stay at home” person. Luckily, the growth of working at home has
paved the way for you to have it all. Work at home persons are persons who
have found a way to keep their family a central part of their day-to-day
lives, while also managing to bring in extra income with their own business.
While certainly no easy feat, starting your own business could be the key to
achieving your own personal and work dreams. To help get you started, I’ve
compiled my list of thirty four perfect business ideas for young “stay at
home” people:

Artist
If you have some artistic talent, you can start just about any business that
reflects your abilities. Sell paintings online or create your own designs and
sell them on merchandise through online stores like etsy.com, ,
tradestable.com. Art doesn’t necessarily mean drawing either. If you have a
talent for jewelry, sewing or any artistic endeavour, there are many ways to
turn that passion into profit.

Blogger
Simple to get started and incredibly self-fulfilling to work on, blogging is a
go-to work at home idea for many young people. It allows you to focus on a
topic that you enjoy most and work around your own schedule.

Bridal Consultant
If you love weddings and are a detail-oriented and organized person, you
may want to consider becoming a home-based bridal consultant. With many
women juggling their work life with their home life, managing a huge event
like a wedding may seem nearly impossible. Working with a bridal
consultant is great way to help alleviate extra stress during this time.

Business Plan Writer
As more people start to realize that being more self-sufficient can help
through economic downturns, self-employment is becoming more and more
the norm. While someone may have all the know-how to create their
product or service, they may not have the knowledge to actually run the
business or get it started. Become a freelance business plan writer and you
can help these individuals realize their dreams.

Cake Decorator
Have a passion for making cakes beautiful? With some examples of your
creations and a bit of social networking, you could be on your way to the
business of your dreams. There are always reasons to celebrate, and where
there’s a party, a cake is never far behind. Increase your chances of
standing out from the crowd by targeting a niche cake business such as
GMO free, vegetarian, or even Disney or other specialized design areas.

Career or Life Coach
It isn’t always easy for people to figure out what’s best for them.
Sometimes we just need someone to help us along and to get us through the
rough patches. Career and life coaches can help people get to that better
place more easily and quickly than they would on their own. If you love
people and have a true desire to help them, this may be the business
opportunity for you.

Children’s Book Writer
If you love to write and illustrate and can’t keep good stories out of your
head, you may want to give writing a children’s book a try. Luckily, with the
iPad and Kindle, it’s easier than ever to get your story out to the masses.
You can test your story ideas out with ebook apps on these devices. If one
gets extremely popular, you can publish it afterwards.

Craft Business
There are many ways to capitalize on your love of crafting. You can sell
your homemade goods at local craft fairs and bazaars. You can sell your
items on eBay or Etsy. You can even start a craft blog with tutorials for
crafts you make. Or, you can do a combination of all three.

Consulting Business
Do you have knowledge in an industry that may be helpful to other people.
You may be a great startup business expert or a social media guru. Maybe
you know how to break into the music or acting industry. Whatever your
specialized knowledge, you can bet that other people would be willing to pay
to avoid the hard-knock lessons you’ve learned.

Copywriter
With the age of the Internet in full bloom and content marketing becoming
the center of it all, the need for copywriting has never been greater. If you
have a love of the written word and a firm grasp on the grammar rules that
make up our language, becoming a professional editor could be your ideal
freelancing business.
Direct Sales or Home Based Franchise
If you love meeting new people and helping them use the latest gadgets or
products, you may want to consider a direct sales business. All the products
are picked out, you are given all the marketing materials you need, and
you’ll have the support of other people who are doing the same thing. Some
of the more popular businesses for this idea include: Avon, Mary Kay,
Passion Parties.

Event Planner
Love to throw parties? Help others create the perfect event with your party
prowess. You don’t need to cater to just home-based parties either. Some of
the best income in this industry can be made through business and
corporate event planning. To stay competitive, make sure you create a good
network of businesses to work with.

Fitness Trainer
Your love for helping other people get in shape could become your next
business opportunity. You can help coach people in your home, go to theirs,
or offer online classes through Skype or video chat. You could even start a
blog helping people with fitness and workout tips. Using your blog to create
a following, you could also create and sell personalized workout plans
online.

Freelance Writer
The need for writers has grown exponentially over the last few years. From
website article writing to technical writing, your options are endless. If this
is something you are interested in, you may want to consider specializing in
a specific industry to help establish your expertise more easily, such as
gaming, health or eCommerce product descriptions.

Grant Writer
Non-profits are constantly struggling to get money in the door. Grant
writing is a necessary component to raising funds. Your ability to write and
research will be the key to your success with this business. As a freelance
grant writer, you can help multiple non-profits at once. To help get started,
you may want to offer your services for free for the first few grants to
establish your resume.

Graphic Designer
Graphic designers have many business opportunities that cater to their skill
set. You can work as a freelance graphic designer or illustrator. You may
also want use your skills to create your own line of stationery, printables or
even web design templates. You could also specialize in a specific field such
as logo design, infographics, brochures or annual reports.

Hobby-Related Business
Your love for your hobby could turn into a passion for profits. With the
success of online marketplaces such as eBay and Etsy, you can have an
instant platform for selling your creative wares. If you don’t feel like selling
your creations, you can sell tutorials that will let others make them instead.

Home-Based Bakery or Food Business
Take your love for baking or cooking and turn it into your own business.
Your culinary skills can be turned into a variety of businesses, from working
as a personal chef to baking at home and selling your goods to local stores.
If you like cooking for a crowd, you may even want to try your hand at
catering.

Image/Fashion Consultant
Let your passion for fashion make you some extra income. If you love
pulling together the perfect outfit, you may want to consider becoming a
fashion or image consultant. While it may not be obvious at first, the
reasons that people may need an image consultant are quite varied. You
may be helping someone get a complete wardrobe makeover, or you might
help someone work on their image to land their dream job or even their
dream mate. To help establish your credibility, you may want to consider
becoming a certified consultant .

Interior Designer/Home Staging
A desire to make the world around us more beautiful is a great reason to
want to go into the interior design business. There are a few ways to enter
this business that you may want to consider. First, you don’t necessarily
need to be an interior designer. You can help people with limited budgets by
doing home staging or decorating their home with what they already own. A
good way to help set yourself apart from the pack in this industry is to
specialize in a certain area or style of design.

Internet Marketing Freelancer
Internet marketing has grown tremendously as a field, and it’s not
diminishing any time soon. There are plenty of business opportunities
within this industry, from content marketing to search engine specialization.
You may even want to focus on traffic generation or helping businesses with
the art of conversion. Your skill set can help you determine what area
would create the best opportunity for success.

Licensed Day Care Operator
If you have a passion for kids, don’t just sit there admiring them, or if you
are already taking care of your own little ones, it makes sense to look for
ideas that allow you to take advantage of the way you’re already spending
your time. Day care can seem like a natural extension.

Nanny or Babysitter Service
Know people looking for work? Help everyone out by starting a nanny
service. Use a website and local marketing to help generate leads to find
both potential nannies or babysitters and families looking for one. To ensure
success, you’ll need to make sure you carefully examine your nannies
backgrounds and resumes. A good place to start for more information if
you’re considering this business is the International Nanny Association.

Online Store Owner
You may have dreamed of owning your own store when you were younger,
only to find out later how difficult it is to actually run a brick and mortar
store these days. The good news is, you can sell just about anything online.
There are plenty of ecommerce solutions online for you to sell your wares,
as well as the classic standbys of eBay and Etsy. The trick for selling
products online is to make sure to specialize in a certain industry, for
instance – secondhand clothing, discounted brand names, vintage finds,
housewares, books, geek-related products, art, etc. The options are virtually
endless.

Online Teacher
The growth of online courses has exploded over the last few years. If you
have a teaching background, you may want to supplement your current
income or strike out completely on your own in this new industry. You will
need to be able to create video lectures and/or some type of online class
work.

Personal Chef
Not everyone has the time to create their meals, especially if they have
specific dietary needs. A personal chef can become an essential part of
keeping the day-to-day aspects of a family moving. Being flexible in this
business will help you stay competitive. Don’t just think of dinners or
working with only one family. You can offer a week’s worth of healthy
lunches or quick breakfasts. You may also want to be on call for special
family or holiday events. Specializing in a specific area such as gluten free,
low calorie or vegetarian will also help you target people looking for
solutions to more specific needs.

Pet Related Services
The pet industry is booming, and as such, business opportunities in this
industry are growing. Your love for pets can be applied to a variety of
businesses such as pet grooming, homemade pet snacks, designing your own
pet fashions, pet walking or even pet sitting.

Seamstress
If you have talent with a needle and thread, you may want to put that talent
to work. Your sewing skills can be the key to a number of business
opportunities, from mending and sewing custom clothes to creating
homespun projects and selling them online.

Sell Used/Vintage Items Online
Vintage clothing is all the rage, and many people would rather buy their
clothes from eBay than go thrift shopping for themselves. Use this to your
advantage by finding some great clothing at your local thrift shops, fixing it
up at home and then listing it online. You don’t have to stop at clothes
either. You may have a love for vintage or secondhand jewelry or even
vintage brand-related products.

Stock Photographer
Becoming a freelance photographer probably relies 80% on your ability to
market yourself and 20% on your actual ability to take great photos. Since
this is an incredibly competitive industry, you may want to consider other
opportunities in the same field. One alternative idea is to become a stock
photographer. A stock photographer can take pictures of certain material on
their own terms and then sell the photo numerous times after. You can sell
your pictures through online stock photography websites such as
Shutterstock or iStock . You could also specialize in a specific genre, such as
food or corporate photography, and sell the photos online yourself.

Social Media Consultant
With the growth of sites like Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest, the need for
someone to help businesses navigate these marketing avenues is high. If you
love to use these types of platforms and you can help companies grow their
own following, this may be the business for you.

Web Designer
Web design combines the technical know-how of creating a functioning
website with the creative requirements of making that site look good and
draw in visitors. With the tools available today, almost anyone can create a
template-based website, but it takes that special something to make it
successful. If you want to challenge yourself in a fairly competitive
industry, this might just be the business for you.

Website Content Writer
Content marketing is a big deal right now, and while many people are
running successful websites, they may not be great at churning out
compelling content to help promote their business. That’s where you come
in. Helping companies write quality articles and blog posts can be a great
way to make extra money, especially if your writing gets results.

Write & Sell eBooks Online
If you have a good amount of knowledge in a field that other people are
interested in, then writing and distributing ebooks on the topic is a great,
easy way to make some extra money. With the rising popularity of ereaders like Amazon’s Kindle, the time has never been better to self-publish your own ebooks. In order to maximize your profit potential, make sure you take the time to copyedit your ebook and have some outside sources look it over and critique it before you put it up for sale.
