#1 Homemade crafts

Handy with your hands? Or have a tasteful aesthetic that your friends always compliment you on? With eCommerce at an all-time high, now is the perfect time to set up your own online store!

Unique crafts are one of the best businesses to start with little money. Whether you’re offering homemade scented candles or a cosy knitted shawl, your business could be up and running within a few short weeks.

#2 Personal training coach

Enjoy taking care of yourself? Why not teach others too? With a little experience and demonstration, you can start coaching others on the tips and tricks you’ve perfected. Online coaching is a fantastic way to start out from the comfort of your own home (and guarantee that social distancing!)

#3 Write a memoir

You definitely have unique stories. By using your life experiences, you can tell tales that an audience will relate to. Whether you’ve fixed yourself up after a rough patch, or you’re filled with hilarious anecdotes, you can build a personal following by helping others who are going through the same things!

#4 Teach a language

If you’re reading this you can speak at least one language. Whether it’s your mother tongue or your fifth language, someone else is going to be learning it. From basic conversational levels to complex grammar, you have something valuable to teach.

#5 Start a podcast

Friends complimenting you for your witty takes on current events? Or perhaps you have a lot of knowledge on a certain subject? There are people out there who want to listen to what you have to say - and it doesn’t require a big set-up! From Dungeons & Dragons to the latest fashion scenes, the choice is all yours!

#6 Interior design

Years of playing The Sims has finally paid off! Take your sophisticated home-decor style and transform people’s lives. Spruce up their living spaces with unique products and colour palettes, and embrace that artistry.

#7 Life coach

Do your friends come to you for advice? Maybe you have the personality it takes to become a life coach. Take your experience and level-headed personality and build a career out of helping others.

#8 Proofreader

#9 Voiceover Artist
