Yes, you can turn your car into a money-maker by driving for Uber and Lyft, but there are other ways to convert mileage into money as a clever side business idea. One way is to do vehicle advertising, a potential side income source of anywhere between $100 to $600 per month. Whether you own a compact sedan or a full-sized bus, your vehicle’s exterior space is prime real estate for ads. Check Wrapify, carvertise, and similar sites for more details about getting started with this business idea and for being paired up with local advertisers.
As a personal chef, you would spend your time whipping up delicious meals for those who don’t have time to cook but do have money to burn. The best way to make a name for yourself as a personal chef is to offer meals that fit stringent dietary or allergy requirements.
In the case of franchises such as Tim Horton’s, for example, everything from the restaurant location to the menu is predefined for the buyer. In return, the buyer pays startup fees, franchise fees, and must purchase supplies and equipment from Tim Horton’s. The company provides training, national marketing, and assistance with management (see Tim Hortons Franchise Review).
I do not use my own links unless I have express permission to do so (in writing). This is very important for many networks such as AdSense which will kick you out of the program if you click on the ads on your own site. One of my affiliates indeed did let me use my affiliate link to purchase a second of their products, but only one time. But I was so nervous, I emailed them and asked explicitly if I was reading that right. “So, can I click on my own affiliate link on my own blog and purchase this?” The response was, “Yes, you can use your own link.” And I wrote back again, “So, I will in no way be penalized if I click on my own affiliate link?” (I think I drove them crazy (Hi, can you say anal? 🙂 ) but they assured me it was fine…and it was. All that to say, be very, very careful! I know the fine print is tedious, but being familiar with the TOS (Terms of Service) is really to your benefit.
If you’re a soloprenuer or a small business owner with just 1 or 2 employees, you may want to take HR and make it a sub-component of Admin and only have 4. But if you have multiple employees, and you’re going to grow to even more, you definitely want to have a separate component that’s HR.

That’s not to say that it’ll be easy. With the rise in working from home comes more competition from other home-based businesses. And any new venture will require at a minimum some serious market research and possibly some fairly complex licensing and legal maneuvers.

Trouble with law: Some victims may actually receive money. But at the same time, they may be unknowingly breaking the law, on behalf of the perpetrator of the scheme, but will be fully legally responsible. Such violations may be criminal or civil in nature. In other cases, they will not be committing any criminal acts, but they will end up framed in an investigation for the crimes of the perpetrator.

Same here, this post kind of fell from the sky at such a great time. Been building a great community of readers over the years but reached a point where I’m losing money maintaining the site and newsletter. As you said, the ads don’t bring much -ironically I use Adblocks too but affiliate marketing always seemed like a weird and opaque subject. I’ve read many of Chris Guillebeau’s books in the last few months (this is how I discovered your site actually!) and I didn’t realize he had affiliate links for instance. Your post opened up a new window of possibility for me. Still need to process everything and do the work behind but a big thank you to you Sean!
I’ve seen examples where people have used high-demand, high-fee products and done things like advertising them using Facebook ads. Lots of affiliates won’t let you compete with advertising that they’re doing, and it’s not as honest or transparent as linking via blogs etc, but it shows it can be done.
I’ve been providing a simple ‘green’ service at commercial properties since 1981. Using only hand tools, I perform a daily litter cleanup service for the exterior property (sidewalks, parking lot, landscape). Almost as easy as going for a walk! I generate a six figure income yearly from this simple, home based, low cost start up business and I can teach you how to do the same. Details online: http://www.cleanlots.com. Affiliate program available.
The biggest advantage of business consultancy is that it attracts high fees and has very low start up and operational overhead, with just one or two transactions recouping the entire overhead. The sense of achievement and personal satisfaction that comes with the accomplishment of the job, and the wide knowledge inculcated as part of the job come as bonus.
I’d hardly done anything during the previous year to monetize Location Rebel (then Location 180), but when this was released, I figured “why not?” and wrote a review talking about how cool the program was.
Generally speaking, this option requires less upfront but depending on the size and quality of locations, it can be the most expensive option. Make sure to thoroughly research the existing business and analyze the current sales figures to ensure that the money is worth the price. Also, check out how much time is left in each of the contracts!
Guide: Do you know your local area? The best places to go for fishing or hunting? Do you know a stretch of river? You can start a business guiding people in the area. Even if it’s just a restaurant tour of the tastiest places in town, your guide efforts can be profitable.
Do you know how difficult it is to find a good and trustworthy mechanic? Maybe it is just me, but I feel like I have had way too many experiences with mechanics not be truthful with me that I would gladly pay more and give all my business to an honest one. If you know your way around a car and have a few tools, this could be a great business idea for you.
Perhaps you’ve had a meeting or two already, or perhaps not. Either way, today is the day that you’re getting a “yes”. Approach it in the wrong way, and you’ll be politely shown the door. In other words, the contact will become a “dead lead.” If done well, you have the ability to not only secure a location’s interest, but to create a partner that will help you grow your business!
For all such consultancy services, the entrepreneur needs to bring into the business strong communication skills, strong time management skills, the strong desire to help others, the ability to manage business relationships, and the willingness to learn and follow a proven system.
