Whether it is to make a career change or just “dip a toe” into the waters of making a little extra money, a weekend start-up business can be a perfect fit for anyone. Depending on a person’s particular talents, interests, likes or dislikes, here are some startup ideas to choose from for a weekend business that won’t break the bank.
Party Planning Service
If throwing a party seems like the perfect job, try a party planning service. For those who are well organized, are creative, and can think outside the box, a party planning service can be an in-demand service. Consider cleanup services to give the business an edge over the competition.
Storm Window Installation and Storage
Homeowners love storm windows. What they don’t love is putting them up in the fall and taking them down and storing them in the spring. In addition to the labor costs of removing and reinstalling the storm windows, services such as window cleaning, storage, and minor repairs can be an ideal weekend business idea.
A well-placed tree can not only provide beauty but can cut utility bills. However, trees occasionally need to be trimmed. Most homeowners cannot trim higher branches themselves. With the correct tools and expertise, anyone can turn cutting green into making green.
Attic & Garage Cleaning and Hauling Service
No one wants to spend an entire weekend cleaning out their attic, garage, or shed. Even after the organization is done, there is always a ton of debris and discarded items to take to the dump. However, for those who don’t mind physical labor, this can become a lucrative business.
For the pet-lover, what could be a better job than playing with Fido? More and more, pet parents are opting for leaving their fur babies with a person who can provide a more home-like atmosphere, whether they go on vacation or work. One drawback is that most demand for this type of service is on holidays. In addition, some pet-sitters will also have to handle medical needs, such as administering medicine or providing after-surgery care.
Niche eBay Business
With the thousands of different types of eBay stores online today, finding a niche market is the hardest part to starting an online eBay store. However, once that perfect niche market is found, most time will be spent setting up postage, emailing buyers, and numerous customer service responsibilities. This type of business is perfect for someone with limited mobility or who may be tied to their home due to small children.
With a little imagination and research, anyone can find a fun and easy way to make extra money, change career directions, or just try out different business options in order to find the perfect start-up business that fits their life.
