  1. Boat Cleaning

Boat owners are consistently looking for someone to clean their boats. After all, boats need to be cleaned during the summer, after the summer, and right before the summer. Typically, boat cleaners also know how to do minor repairs. While you might need a little bit of training and experience, you can easily start a boat cleaning service by contacting your local marina or making connections through boat owners.

  1. Dog Walking

If you love dogs and the outdoors, then start a dog walking service! You can choose to walk dogs in groups or individually. And if you really want to make the most out of your business, you could even market additional services, like feeding, playing, and taking care of pets throughout the day.

  1. Personal Trainer

If you love health and fitness and want to help others achieve their full fitness potential, then become a personal trainer! Even if you’re a fitness guru, you should take a few classes to ensure you can safely train others. Once you have the necessary education, start marketing your services in restaurants, grocery stores, and community centers!

  1. Cleaning Service

Like many of the businesses on this list, there will always be a demand for cleaning services. You can choose to clean professional spaces, like restaurants and retail stores, or private spaces like homes.

  1. eBay Store or Assistant

There’s an overall guideline of how to be successful on eBay. If you have items you can sell on eBay, or have an eye for purchasing vintage items to resell on eBay, then open your own eBay store. On the other hand, if you think you have all the necessary skills to become successful on eBay, but don’t want to do it yourself, you can market your services as an assistant to someone else.

  1. Hairstylist

While you will need cosmetology training for this business, it can be extremely lucrative once you have the proper license. If you’re a new hairstylist, you can start your business from your home, then work your way up to opening your own salon. On the other hand, if you’ve worked in salons before, you most likely already have a list of customers and know people who could work for you. That being said, you might be able to easily open your own salon.

  1. Moving Service

Moving can be overwhelming. That’s why most people hire a moving service! If you want to open a moving service, simply make sure you’re in proper shape to lift and carry heavy items, hire a few people who can also lift heavy objects, and start marketing your services around town!

  1. Computer Repair

Do you have a knack for technology? Do you understand main software systems, or would be able to easily learn about them? If so, consider opening a computer repair service! While you might have to take a few classes to learn the specifics about computer platforms, it’s worth it because people are always looking for a computer guru to fix their computers.
