Ever dream about starting a small business on your own? Here are three you might want to think about:
- Freelance Writing
Do you love to write? Do you possess a great vocabulary and excellent grammar skills? You might be surprised how valuable those skills are today. Magazines, websites, business mailings, blog writing services and wherever something needs to be sold, the words that attract attention and motivate the reader are highly sought after. If you like to read, write and research, you could find a niche in the world of copywriting.
Blogmutt is one of those businesses that will allow you to work at your own pace and set your own goals. Your connection is virtual and you need never visit an office or attend any meetings. It is a job you build for yourself, design the parameters and put as much effort into it as you need to in order to see your desired level of success.
- Virtual Assistant
If you are computer savvy and very organized, you could offer your services to local businesses to help them with those tasks that always seem to be put on the back burner. Data entry, internet research, social media management and digital correspondence are some examples of those types of tasks. Brush up on your technical skills and your proof-reading, grammar and spelling skills and this could be the opportunity you seek.
- Personal Stylist
Do you consider yourself to be stylish and fashion conscious? Could you help other women find their perfect look? Offer your services as a personal shopper or closet organizer and help your clients become the best that they can be. This job needs a non-judgmental ear and a sincere desire to help others. Create a portfolio of outfits your have put together and looks that you have envisioned. Create a beautiful color brochure that you can leave with local small clothing stores to share with their customers.
It has often been said that your business will be as successful as you want it to be. Instead of trying to understand and placate a supervisor, you will turn your critical eye inward. It is important to remember to take your time, take cautious steps and don’t forget to nurture yourself along with your new business.
We want to provide these small business tips to encourage others to take that leap of faith they have been thinking about.
Editor’s Note: This is a great post that shows that blogging doesn’t need to be all about you. This one is a third about us, but two thirds about other things that might be of interest to the reader. It’s also just a clean, well written post from one of the most successful BlogMutt writers. (For an explanation of this series of posts, see this.) Thanks for reading! — Scott
