There is something to be said about finding your passion in life. Too many people spend their entire working lives doing a job that is nothing more than a place to be for eight hours (or more) a day. Finding a way to make money doing what you love may be an expensive venture, one you can’t afford. Here are some examples of businesses you can start with little startup investment.

Bookkeeper Business

You may be tired of commuting to work every day. Investing in software or using online sites like Due.com and Sighted.com, you can help businesses manage their books without ever leaving your living room. You will need to have proficiency in math and basic knowledge of accounting.

House Painting Business

There is something to be said about the solitude and quiet that comes with painting a home. Some states require you to become licensed, but others, like Florida, do not. Learn the techniques of pros by watching YouTube videos. Offer a small discount for clients who recommend your services on social media. With a small investment, you’ll be on your way to a new career.

Resume Writer Business

This is a field where there is always a demand. Start by taking a few courses online or from The National Resume Writers’ Association, and then practice with your family and friends. This is another job where word of mouth and digital advertising is essential. It doesn’t hurt to join social media groups that will promote your service, like Linked In and Facebook.

Translator Business

If you are bi-lingual, this is the field for you. Many translators start at $40,000 per year. It’s also a great way to meet new people.

Editor Business

With the wild popularity of self-publishing, editors are in high demand. You can offer various services, including copywriting, developmental editing, proofreading, article writing, and ghostwriting. All that is required is proficiency in one or more of these areas and a computer.

Business Planner Business

If you give your clients a beginning-to-end business plan, you can ensure that you will create a new career for yourself. You can make several sample business plans while keeping a list of add-ons the client may purchase, like Quickbooks and Xero.

House Cleaner Business

Many companies rely on professional cleaning services to keep their offices looking pristine. You can take on as many clients as your time allows. Restaurants also need people to deep clean a few times per year. Private house cleaning can also be lucrative. With a few cleaning supplies, your business will take off quickly.

Ride Sharing Business

The popularity of these taxi services has exploded. If you are willing to work weekends, late nights, and holidays, your income will rise quickly. Check with sites like Uber for their driver requirements.

Tutoring Business

If you were a science whiz in school and want to help others, this is your job. While most of your hours will be afternoon and evening, many homeschooled and college students may need your assistance at other times of day.

Massage Therapist Business

This job will require that you receive training. The amount required varies from state to state. The positive of this job is that it is a versatile position. You can purchase a table and do private, in-house massages or work for an established business where your cost will be minimal.


Starting your own business can be very profound. When they think of starting a business, a lot of people think you have to be a Steve Jobs, a Jeff Bezos, or a Bill Gates, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. You’re pursuing a path that not only gives you additional income but something you love, and that’s just as important. You don’t have to be a mastermind! This article does provide some ideas, but your business venture is all up to you and your goals. Pursue wisely!
