Summer is upon us and what better time to start a new business that lets you spend your time outside, sounds like the perfect type of job. Here’s a list of 5 ideas just to get you thinking about where to get started.
1. Lawn Care Maintenance:
Everyone needs their lawn mowed and maintained, but not everyone loves doing it, it’s the perfect job for someone who loves being outside all summer. You can ask around and charge by similar type jobs in your area.
2. Mobile Car Washing:
This one you can do at anyone’s house, all you need is a few supplies, some business cards and referrals from friends and neighbors and you can pretty much work anywhere at someone’s home. It’s a good side job for the summer because everyone loves having their car cleaned and polished for the weekend.
3. Barbecue Catering:
If you love to barbecue and your looking to do some catering, just combine the two and you can cater cookouts and picnics, outdoor venue’s the list is endless. Could be a great way to make money over the summer.
4. Dog Sitting:
Love dogs, this is a good one for people who want to take care of animals while someone’s on vacation, or you could take care of someone’s pet’s who have a summer job and can’t be home much in the summer.
5. Window Cleaning:
Easy to start, and supplies are under $50. I saved this one for last because it’s one I’ve tried and it’s a good way to make a side income. You could even turn it into a full time income if you live somewhere that has a mild weather all year long. It takes some practice, but something to think about for an income, do some research and see what others in your area are charging and it will give you an idea on what you’ll be making.
As with any new business venture you start, you need to do your own research and see what fits best for your own personal life and experiences. I also wanted to say these are some good ideas for someone out of school looking for a way to make some extra money. Do some research to see what local permits and licenses that you may need as well.
