Home Business Opportunities by Crizlap


									Top 10 Home Business Opportunities
Are you one of the many people searching for a hot home business opportunity? Then this list of
the best home business opportunities based on current and future trends may be just what you're
looking for.
I say "may be" because these home business opportunities are NOT suitable for people who are looking
for "a money-making machine" or who "want to make money in their sleep" or any of those other
phony promises.
Nor are these home business opportunities for people who expect to just make an initial investment and
then just watch the money roll in. Successful home businesses are real businesses. To turn a home
business opportunity into a success, you need to be prepared to work at it and have the appropriate
knowledge and skills that you need to run any business.
But those caveats aside, here are what I think are the best home business opportunities - best because of
their potential right now and because there's going to be a even greater demand for these products and
or services over the next few years.
1) Home Renovation Services
Home renovation services are hot, hot, hot - and there's no sign of this trend slowing down. On the
contrary, as the population ages, even more people are going to want to make their homes more livable
by investing in the home renovations they need to stay where there are. The best home renovation to
focus on for the long-term? Bathroom renovations.
2) Pet-Based Products
Is there anything that indulgent pet owners won't buy for their pets? If you can come up with a product
for dogs or cats that you can produce in your home, you'll have a real winner of a home business
opportunity on your hands. From designer collars to "organic" pet foods, the sky's the limit.
3) Catering Services
Think dinner for eight. Not just delivered, but served. Catering services aren't just for big parties any
more. Career couples are having almost every social occasion catered, and busy families who are tired
of living on take-out are spending more on having food brought in. If you have a knack for planning
and preparing nourishing, appealing food and can deliver it hot, this is the home business opportunity
for you.
4) Cleaning Services
Along the same lines, there's currently a heavy demand for cleaning services, and the demand for
domestic cleaning services will only increase. If you're good at organizing and comfortable with the
thought of running a crew, this home business opportunity has the potential of turning into something
big.Here are more of what I consider to be the best home-based business opportunities for those of you
looking for home-based businesses you can start now that have the potential to earn even more profits
over the next several years.
5) Fall Prevention Products
Did you know that falls are the leading cause of fatal injury among elderly Canadians? Did you know
that falls in seniors account for over $10 million health care dollars annually in Toronto alone? Now
what if you developed or distributed a product related to helping seniors prevent falls? Think of the
growing size of the potential market!
6) Wedding Consultant/Planner Services
More people are opting to get married which means growing opportunities for wedding consultant
services. Unless the laws change in the United States, there will also continue to be a growing demand
for weddings from gay couples seeking to tie the knot. Are you good at planning? Do you have a mind
for details? Becoming a wedding consultant could be the home-based business opportunity you've been
looking for.
7) Dietary Consultant Services
Another growing trend that's only going to get larger is the perceived need for dietary advice. People
are increasingly concerned about the food they put in their mouths and increasingly aware of the
connection between dietary habits and their general health - and they're increasingly prepared to pay for
personalized dietary planning and advice.
8) In-Home Beauty Services
This home-based business opportunity combines two trends; the insatiable demand for services that
make people look and feel younger and better and the growing desire to have those services delivered.
And why not? Having someone come to your home and cleanse and tone your skin and do your
makeup is the height of luxury.
9) Sewing and Alteration Services
Sewing is on the way to becoming a lost art as more and more people find they have less and less time.
But as not everyone is the regulation size, the demand for other people to provide these services will
only increase. If you're really skilled, tailoring is another good home-based business opportunity.
10) Life/Business Coaching Services
Coaching has been hot for a while now, but I think this new industry will continue to grow. Remember
when everyone had or wanted a personal fitness trainer? Now everyone has or wants a personal coach.
If you have the skills and training necessary, this is a great home-based business opportunity because it
can be done remotely as well as in person.
And a last tip - Most of the home-based business opportunities on this list call for specialized training
or skills. If you don't have the specialized training or skills needed for a particular home-based business
opportunity, you can still "be a part of it". Find a person with the appropriate training or skills and
invest in his or her business. Being an angel investor can be rewarding in so many ways.
