You can make quite a decent living in the community you live in if you’re willing to work for it. Here are some easy ideas you can jump the wagon on before they’re taken.
Have you ever mowed lawns around your neighborhood in the summer? Well, then you might know just how much demand there is from suburban families for someone just to come along and fix their lawns.
Buy your lawnmower and go to neighborhoods that you know could use your services. Depending on how extensive the lawns are, you can make from 30$ to more than 100$ per lawn.
If you’re skeptical, don’t worry, I was too. Until I heard some people had used this method to pay for their college tuition and more. There’s more potential here than you might recognize right now, just as long as you’re willing to go around neighborhoods and find work.
This one is for anyone who likes to cook and is good at cooking up various dishes. You don’t have to be a professional or a culinary artist. You have to know how to make good healthy home-cooked food, and that’s it.
There are multiple families with no one that can spare time to make a meal throughout the day. Many upper-middle-class or affluent families have all the adults working or studying and need nurses, maids, and cooks to come over and help out with basic housework.
Find such a family or set up your resume on a job seeker website and market your cooking delicious home-cooked meals for a family. Once you find customers, take their orders and have your food delivered through a delivery service.
Once your service becomes coveted enough, you might need to hire help to keep up. But it would help if you remembered to charge a fair amount for your work as it will take time and effort to cook so many meals. This way, you can run a whole business from your kitchen.
Pack and Move
Please think of how many people are moving home today and are clueless about how to go about it with a calm head. Shifting homes is tricky for most families who don’t know where to start in their messy, cluttered apartments. And herein lies an opportunity to make yourself of value.
If you can hire a team of movers and teach them to pack things safely in boxes and move them to the new homes, it would be a hit for every family looking to shift now. There is some potential in this idea if you can exploit it.
Indeed you’ve come across some of these ideas before but have overlooked the perspective in them. People don’t need you to be the next Elon Musk or Bezos. They need you to solve common problems they are too inexperienced or lazy to do themselves. There is an opportunity for business in all neighborhoods that have an onset of laziness. Don’t overlook it.
