Baking & Personal Chef Services
Everyone needs to eat, but not everyone has the time or skills to cook for themselves. These days, people are turning to sites like Blue Apron and Hello Fresh for their meal prep solutions. If you can prepare weekly meals for an individual or a family, then you’ve got yourself the perfect home business with your kitchen as the office. If you’re a pastry chef – even better! You’ll have year-round opportunities to make pastries for special events like weddings, baby showers, bridal showers, birthdays, anniversaries, holiday parties, and just about any occasion worth celebrating.
Are you an organizational guru? Do you have incredible time management skills, a knack for planning, and a talent for multitasking? Put your skills to good use as a virtual assistant. Considering the fact that due to COVID regulations, many jobs are remote, especially virtual assistance jobs. Maintaining calendars, booking travel, email correspondence and more, can all be done remotely – all you need is a computer. If you’ve already worked successfully as an assistant, your previous references will do wonders for getting your business off the ground. If you need to develop a clientele before starting your business, UpWork is again a useful option for getting your feet wet.
Writing is a great skill to have because it’s needed somewhere in every industry. If there’s an area you have expertise in, such as fashion or technology, maintaining a blog on that subject allows you to have a personal portfolio to show off your work and start earning paid projects. The good news is that you don’t have to start off entirely on your own, there are plenty of freelance writing websites where you can find paid work, such as UpWork, that you can use to build a client base before going off on your own.

Thanks to the likes of Etsy, arts and crafts makers are already making a profit from their original creations.

If you have an eye for fashion and know how to put together an eye-catching ensemble, then you might have what it takes to start your very own online consignment shop. You can find great, affordable items at your local thrift store, pieces that people might otherwise overlook, and use your skills to create one-of-a-kind outfits that go from drab to must-have. You can model the outfits yourself, or involve friends and family by asking them to model your looks and show off a variety of styles on different body types.
