Thanks for investing in this little book – I hope it will help you achieve more freedom in your life.
Be it time or money or travel or whatever else feels limited at the moment. If you are looking to turn your passions and talents into a business, this book will show you various strategies to achieve that. If you hate your job, but don’t know how to replace the income, you will find plenty of ideas for many different genres and skill sets. Or if you would love to travel indefinitely, but need a location independent business that you can run from anywhere in the world you will find many options here.
I collected this massive list of business ideas in response to frequent questions from my readers of both my books and my website www.jubass.com. I’ve been a permanent blogger for the last 3 years while running several online businesses, include.
Kindle Publishing, Affiliate marketing, Relationship, Latest News, SEO Consulting and a Self-Improvement Blog with a 50K following.
People often ask me how I do it and how I transitioned from an Evangelist and a mobile phone engineer, to internet entrepreneur and bestselling author. I also noticed that many would love that kind of freedom not necessarily to travel as much as I do, but to be free to decide about their lives in any ways they wish. Most don’t know how to go about it or think it’s impossible or that it would take years to achieve. That’s why I decided to broaden my reach beyond just spirituality to help people achieve freedom and independence on their terms and with their special talents. My site jubass.com now includes a large listing of Business Blueprints from many different genres, combined with great training resources to be successful in each. That list will continue to expand.
In addition, my Beginner Internet Marketing Series, will help you to attract clients and customers, and take the mystery and frustration out of marketing. Without understanding online marketing, you cannot be successful in any business, no matter how talented you are.
But if you do put in the time to learn, the sky is the limit! I hope that this little book of 600+ business ideas will help you get away from frustrating jobs and limiting hours, and allow you to fully express the wonderful talents and skills that you were meant to share with the world. Live shouldn’t be a dreary rat race, rushing from one unpleasant duty to the next.
We should be able to live life on our terms and enjoy it and share that enjoyment with our family and loved ones. So let me give you a brief introduction on how to best use this book and then let’s go to the actual list! Are you ready?
The Basics – Start here before we get to the actual list of 600+ business ideas, let’s go over how to proceed once you find a business that appeals to you.
Obviously, this short book cannot cover how to get started with 600+ different business types.
In a few cases, links to helpful resources or an excellent course have been included. For all other cases a simple Google search of “How to become a….” with your business choice will provide you with an abundance of articles, books and YouTube videos that will take you through the next steps. Once you make your choice, spend a few days reading everything you possibly can about your chosen business option, so you have a thorough understanding of what is required and what it takes to succeed.
Next, you need to write down a basic business plan. Rather than running blindly and hoping for the best, set some clear goals and timelines and adjust along the way as needed. Start by writing out what your goals are:
What level of income are you looking for?
- How much time can you invest each week?
- What skills do you need to learn?
- How will you learn them?
- And how long will it take you?
- Is a financial investment required?
- If so how much and how will you generate that start-up fund?
Lay out a time line. Don’t worry if you aren’t sure, just try your best and put something on paper. You can always adjust along the way. Your progress will be very different when you know exactly where you are going and how you plan to get there, rather than just starting “somewhere” and hoping it will “somehow” happen. It won’t!
Keep reviewing that plan each week and make adjustments. Set reasonable expectations in the beginning and work out a clear action plan on how you can meet those expectations. For example: if you are aiming for an extra $1050 per month, figure out how many hours of freelance work you will have to perform per month, or how many products you would have to sell each month to reach that number. Then, break it down per day and you will have a much clearer path to reaching your goal. Let’s say you want to start a freelance business as a Virtual Assistant. You do your research and learn everything you possibly can about what it takes to become successful in that field. If you did your homework, you will know what a reasonable starter rate will be. Let’s choose $25/hour for this example. If you want to make an extra $1050 per month, you would need to get at least 42 hours’ worth of paid VA time to reach that number (and that is not including taxes). 42 hours per month would be 10.5 hours per week => 2.5 hours per day. Suddenly, it doesn’t seem so impossible anymore, right….? From your research and training, you would also have a good idea of how you can acquire enough clients and gigs to get those 42 hours per month and from there, you can structure a suitable marketing campaign for your freelance business. See how this is very different from just putting up a listing on Upwork and hope that somehow you will make a few extra bucks.
A successful business starts with:
1) Thorough research to find a profitable sub niche and understanding who your audience is.
2) Next, a detailed action plan and finally
3) Taking action!
