The Top 25 Home-Based Business Ideas

If you are thinking about starting your own home-based business, the available options can be overwhelming. However, there are many tried and true home-based businesses that may be just what you are looking for.
Here are the top 25 home-based business ideas, in no particular order:


1. Personal trainer. If you are fitness-minded, you can start your own career as a personal trainer. Check out the National Federation of Professional Trainers for information about the certification process.
2. Yoga instructor. Begin sharing your expertise with others by teaching yoga classes. There are a number of online resources, depending on the school of yoga that you practice. The Yoga Alliance Web site provides information on yoga schools, certification, insurance, and so on.
3. Tutoring. You can start a business tutoring students by advertising at schools, the local YMCA, and other places frequented by families. If you have children, talk to their teachers and determine the needs of your school district.
4. Business coaching. Have experience with management or some other specialized business skill? Share it with others by becoming a business coach. The International Coach Federation provides certification and a coach referral service for its members.
5. Consulting. If you are an expert in your industry, such as finance, marketing, or mediation, consider beginning your own consulting business.
6. Medical and legal transcription. If you have transcription skills and the necessary equipment, you can easily work from home for a variety of different companies. Check local community colleges or online for transcription training courses.
7. Medical claims billing. This industry is one of the most popular work-from-home businesses -- so much so that suspect companies have been popping up on the Internet and in classified advertisements. ELearners.com can help you locate transcription training courses online.
Reference:: Sikh Philosophy Network http://www.sikhphilosophy.net/business-and-lifestyle/22388-self-employment.html
8. Accounting. There are many franchises and opportunities available for certified public accountants. If you are interested in getting certified, take a look at the Web site of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants for information on specific state requirements.
9. Web design. If you can design quality Web sites, consider turning your skills into a home-based business. Although the software and hardware costs can be steep, good Web designers tend to be well-compensated for their efforts.
10. Desktop publishing. Do you have a creative flair for putting together brochures and newsletters? You can offer your own desktop publishing services to other small businesses. Software can be expensive, so make sure to give applications a trial run or take a course before investing in one.
11. Photography. If you are skilled with a camera, you can open your own photography studio in your home. Keep in mind that you will need space to shoot the pictures as well as a light-free space for a darkroom if you decide to process your film and print your photographs yourself.
12. Home inspection. The National Association of Certified Home Inspectors Web site provides information on becoming certified to inspect homes.
13. Remodeling. If you are a gifted carpenter or contractor, you can turn your passion into your own business. The SBA provides loans to experienced contractors looking to renovate homes or businesses in order to sell them.
14. Interior design. If you have a flair for the creative, consider interior design. The American Society of Interior Designers Web site provides resources for aspiring interior designers, including a list of each state's requirements for licensing.
15. Catering or personal chef. Consider starting your own catering or personal chef business from your own kitchen. You can set yourself apart from competitors by providing specialized services such as low-carb or vegetarian menus.
16. Gift baskets. Gift basket creation is a popular and creative home-based business. Target both individuals and businesses to increase potential sales.
17. Wedding planner. If you are an ace at organizing important events and have a Rolodex full of contacts, consider becoming a wedding planner. There are numerous online certification courses online, including one from Weddings Beautiful.
18. Personal shopper. If you are a great shopper with an eye for people's personal styles, you can offer your services to those less inclined. In addition, consider providing a gift shopping service for those too busy to shop themselves.
19. Concierge. If you have a lot of energy, a love for the mundane, and the ability to juggle multiple tasks, consider providing a personal concierge to busy business people or parents.
20. Custom jewelry creation. Designing your own custom design jewelry can be a lucrative pastime. Make sure to wear your own creations as a way to drum up business.
21. Computer repair. Are you the person everyone calls when they have a computer problem? Turn this into a business and start getting paid for fixing fatal errors. Check out Geeks on Call America and Rescuecom if you are interested in franchise opportunities.
22. Cleaning service. If you are good at cleaning, consider offering your services to others. One way to go is with a franchise. CleanNet-USA and JaniKing are two of the largest franchisers in the cleaning market.
Reference:: Sikh Philosophy Network http://www.sikhphilosophy.net/showthread.php?t=22388
23. Carpet cleaning service. There are many popular franchises that allow you to start your own carpet cleaning business and receive the equipment and training you need. ServiceMaster Clean and ChemDry are two of the bigger ones.
24. A riding school. If you own your own barn, land, and horses, you can open your own riding school. Equisearch.com offers resources, including some useful articles on liability issues.
25. Child-care services. Turn your expertise with children into one of the most popular home-based business opportunities.

Re: Self-Employment

Since these are time-consuming service-related jobs, it does not involve large capital to start.
In fact it is a very rewarding to do those things which you are familiar with.

If you need to add on other professions, move towards those that require minimal training.

Specialization is the key to success.
Reference:: Sikh Philosophy Network http://www.sikhphilosophy.net/showthread.php?t=22388
Employees are necessary in every profession.
So what are the challenges one faces with employees ?

Let me dig out an article which covers all those challenges.

Re: Self-Employment

These are all good! Also, one other option which can pay very well, is a cleaning sevice-houses and business. All you would need is a dust broom, a good mop and bucket, gloves, rags- not much capital outlay needed.

Re: Self-Employment

KulwantK Ji,

Right now I'm looking for ways to implement this cleaning service by setting up an agency (middleman).
Of course, some of the contracts might spill away via the workers but a middleman attracts more work thru his/her ads. The problem, as always. is workforce. Workers don't stay long due to better pay elsewhere. So a middleman is the best way. No hassle with workers.

Cleaning job is the biggest demanded job because inflation forces every house member to fend for him/herself having little time for the cleaning.

Re: Self-Employment

NamJap ji

Please do remember to do research on the kinds of liability insurance you may need as a middleman in Malaysia. To protect yourself from frivolous lawsuits and serious ones coming from the client and/or from the worker. To be more competitive you might also investigate some kind of group benefit that is not overly expensive that you would offer the workers to enhance their loyalty.

Re: Self-Employment

Good idea, Aad Ji. A job contract should include this aspect. Nobody reads the fine print.

Probably in Malaysia people are not as litigious as in the US. But it is important to cover your liabilities and even find out what they are in the eyes of the law. Well, I am relieved that you will look into this.
