Want to quit your job and start something new on your own? Looking for start-up ideas to consider?

Let’s take a look at 4 potential businesses that are worth considering.

Writing/Editing

This kind of work requires verbosity, language skills, and certain computer skills (which most of millennials already have). It offers a wide range of jobs, such as content and SEO writing, proofreading, ghostwriting, and web page writing.

This type of work is usually freelance based, meaning you could be lounging in bed and getting paid for it. If you’re well experienced and good at what you do, companies may offer you a steady stream of work and compensate you well for your time. Build a report with them, and you could find yourself with a steady stream of income.

Check out this post for a list of freelance sites you can start making money with today.

Dog Walking/Sitting Services

If you’re a dog person, then you know what a joy it is to spend time with the pooches. Imagine getting paid to hang out with them! These services are mostly required by busy or disabled people, or those who can’t take their pets on a trip. Depending on your agreement, you’ll probably walk and feed them, along with endless playing and cuddling.

Nowadays, they have dog sitting services very similar to baby sitting, where you would stay at the person’s home while they’re away and take care of their dogs.

Here’s a short list of sites you can sign up with to get started. While you’re not going to get rich, the more gigs you get, the more money, and the only limit here are the amount of days in a week.

Making Accessories

This is a hobby which can turn into a full-time job, with some talent and good fortune. All you need is creativity, different materials, and a bit of practice. Creativity and ingenuity will go a long way. This type of start-up includes all kinds of items, from jewelry, to clothes, bags, hats, pillows—whatever you can think of!  Really, there is no limit to your imagination. What matters here is the advertisement, uniqueness, and quality of your products, since many people already do this sort of thing.

Here are some sites you can start selling your handmade accessories through:

  • eBay
  • Amazon
  • Shopify
  • Square Space

Opening a Pub

Another blooming business idea is running a pub. Pubs are the all-time favorite places for grabbing a drink (or nine), having a delicious bite, and enjoying some great music. Starting a pub can be risky, since you can never know whether it will be an instant success or a failure. However, there are some things you can do to stand a better chance.

First of all, you’ll need a business plan where you’ll state what kind of pub you want to open, and what it will offer to its customers. When looking for a place, bear in mind that it needs to be in a prominent spot –  a convenient location with plenty of parking for customers.

Finances are the most common problem with this type of start-up, so if you lack money, you should definitely consider a loan or find someone to invest in your business. This move isn’t without risk, but if you’re savvy and have passion for craft beers, it can be a good business move.

Aside from finances, the look and feel of your pub will set you apart from other pubs. It’s important to keep this in mind and budget for changes to the decor and possible renovations that will need to occur. The type of seating is important, including eye-catching, comfortable bar stools where people can enjoy their drinks while chatting, watching gigs or a game.

Also, make sure you’re aware of local ordinances pertaining to pubs and how they could affect your business, and you’ll also want to make sure that any alcohol licensing that may be required is obtained prior to opening for business.

So, if you want a clean start where you’ll be your own boss and in control of your day-to-day life, a start-up job may just be the ticket for you. Granted, this is just a fraction of the possibilities that are out there. It’s important to figure out what you’re passionate about, as this will be the catalyst that propels you forward. The rest is entirely up to your creativity and abilities. Good luck!

   

Working in a big and successful company makes you always strive for more, so you ask for a well-deserved raise, wish to bring in more clients and try to be the best employee you can. However, sometimes this just isn’t enough for you and your peers, so you decide to do something even bigger. A management buyout, for example, is quite common nowadays and it involves a group of managers who decide to purchase the business of the company that currently employs them. Thus they become owners, which is always good.

You may think that your limited liability company (LLC) will limit your personal liability if someone sues your company. But will it? In reality, this liability protection can be breached purely based on the way you run the company.

If there are multiple members in the LLC and one member exposes the company to liability, are all the other members protected in their personal assets? Will a court limit any claims strictly to member contributions, or will it reach behind the protections you think you have, and come for your home, your spouse’s income, or any other personal asset?

A court […] Continue Reading…
