You don’t have to quit your job to start a business. Many businesses can be started as part-time businesses or side hustles. Here are 15 ideas for making money in part-time businesses that don’t require you to quit your day job. Updated, September 2017.
Starting a business doesn’t necessarily mean you have to give up your day job. Whether you want to make a little extra money in a side hustle, or find a part-time business that you can grow into a bigger, full-time operation, there are any number of business ideas you can pursue your spare time.
Here are 15 part-time business ideas to inspire you.
1. Become a re-seller.
Sell unwanted or new items via Amazon, eBay, Etsy and other online marketplaces. This type of business can be scaled to your schedule, budget and inventory and is perfect as a side hustle.
2. Create socıal medıa posts for busınesses.
Businesses know that they should be participating in social media, but many – particularly local small business owners – don’t have the staff, know-how or time to post to social media sites they could benefit from. If you enjoy social media and know how to build a following, handling social media for businesses would be an excellent sideline business for you to start. For clients, look to the local businesses and restaurants in your area to get this part-time business started.
3. Offer your servıces as a freelance personal assıstant.
If you’re efficient, you’re reliable and you love being on the go, this may be the business for you. From grocery shopping and purchasing gifts to dropping off dry cleaning or picking up concert tickets, helping busy people save time will make you an in-demand assistant.
4. Provıde pet servıces.
Animal lovers can profit from their passion by offering a range of pet services. Dog walking, waste cleanup, pet-sitting and transporting pets to appointments are just some of the profitable part-time businesses you can start to cater to the needs of pet owners.
5. Start a cookıng or bakıng busıness.
Turn your baking or cooking skills into a side hustle. Decorating cakes, catering and selling baked goods are just a few ways to make money in your area. It’s important to note that you’ll need to learn about city and county food preparation regulations if you decide to cater or sell locally. If there are food or drink items that are your own recipes and people ask for repeatedly, you may one day be able to turn part-time food business into a brand everyone craves. Contact your local Small Business Development center for free help planning your business if you want to grow it. They may also be able to direct you to commercial kitchens you can rent to comply with Department of Health regulations.
