Everyone, when they are working for another person, has at some point been passionate about starting their own business. The facts like being one’s own boss, not being yelled at, making your own decisions, working under your own terms and conditions – all work their charm on the mind working under pressure.
The truth is, although the fact that all the benefits do add up to a happier motivation to work in one’s own business, the hard work and perseverance required to actually make a business run is equal to, if not more than, that of a stressful job. However, a home business is a far more satisfying venture if you are ready to work hard. Here are the top ideas for starting your own business from home.
The internet has also opened up many opportunities for you to be a freelancer or consultant working out of a home office. Whilst there are hundreds of opportunities out there here are three examples of what you might do.
Content Writing Services
The Mechanics: Content writing, like most western and global projects that are outsourced to India, is a fast developing sector where hard work always pays off well. Numerous companies look for good quality content for their websites and publications. Indians being the best users of the English language can easily capitalize on that. If you have a flair for writing good English and can communicate well, this is a good option for you.
Capital: A personal computer and a working internet connection are just about enough. Small expenses to promote and market your company on social media sites and websites will be required. If you are looking to hire full time writers, you will need an office, workstations and other investments. Alternatively, you can delegate projects to part time writers.
Growth Potential: Moderate. It is a sure shot stable business, provided you can keep a steady flow of quality content coming.
Opening Your Own Catering Service/Restaurant
The Mechanics: India loves its foods, and although most of us have been brought up to believe that our food is number one in the world, the new age Indian is not scared to experiment with world cuisines. In fact, Indians love good food, wherever they come from.
And as more and more Indians are coming out of the box as far as food is concerned, the time ripe to invest in the food business. There are numerous options like opening a home delivery service catering to offices and homes with working couples, or perhaps find a courageous new age hip chef and invest in his ideas for an offbeat restaurant. Catering to marriages and parties is another profitable venture.
Capital: Utensils, cooking apparatus, and small capital for the shopping before services
Growth Potential: Relatively High. With effective management, you can easily build it into to a massive venture.
The Mechanics: India being a hot and humid country, most places are ideal for mushroom cultivation. With world cuisines fast becoming popular all over India, the demand for a good source of mushrooms is huge. However, be sure to have clients waiting to buy your product when it’s ready, as mushrooms by themselves are very tough to cook into money even for the best alchemists.
Capital: A large covered terrace or garden, mushroom seeds of an edible variety or a deadly one depending on your clientele, and LOTS of patience as mushrooms need time to grow.
Growth Potential: You can see good profits, if the process is well taken care of as the demand for quality is high. Care needs to be taken to ensure mushrooms grow properly. You may forget to take care of them for a week, but they will be ruined anyway. You will suffer a total loss.
