This is one of the home-based business ideas that doesn't require changing the profession. If you have an experience in the specific field, offer your consulting services to other companies.

If you are into weddings, you can also try being a wedding planner.

Bicycle repair shop

This is one of the home-based business ideas that are simple as the title says. Rent a warehouse or some space and start providing a service of repairing and storing bicycles. Don't worry about this being a seasonal job, it is definitely not. Race riders need a place where they can store a bike and have it ready when they want to use it.

Chimney cleaning and repairing

Become a chimney sweep! It would be great if you had a master to learn from him/her for a while. Then, you don't have to just clean chimneys, you can also repair them. Definitely one of the home-based business ideas that represent old crafts.

Content writer

If you know how to write well and are a creative soul, you should try content writing. As a freelancer, you'll have to adjust the style to the target group, a group of people you are writing for. There are many sites you can apply as a freelancer and you can find a client on your own.

The same thing goes for the photographer and resume writer. In these fields, the more experience you have, the better.


If you get along with children, use it as a job. So many people nowadays prefer to have someone taking care of their children at home, while they are working.

Music teacher

If your body is full of music, use the talent. Keep in mind that you have to be skilled enough to teach. You can also choose individual lessons or teach in a class.

Web and app developer

Of course, we are going to mention web and app developing. As Harley Quinn would say: "We are bad guys, it's what we do." Therefore, we can't recommend web developing enough.
Web and app developing is the same thing as content writing or being a photographer, except the fact that you need to learn a lot. If programming is not your primary field, get to work, things are about to get nasty.
