Home Business Ideas

You can create your own work from home job. How? Think of home business ideas and start a home-based business. And, no, I'm not talking about direct sales or multi-level marketing.

Instead, focus on businesses you can conduct online or run out of your house. Your own business lets you:

  • Set your schedule
  • Increase earning potential
  • Grow as much (or little) as you want

For example, I started a home business as a career coach. My business runs both online through Work from Home Happiness and locally. The best part? I keep costs way down without a physical office.

Today, you can start many different home businesses. Technology makes it easy to consult, coach, and sell online. Plus, you can have a local business that runs smoothly from home.

Online Home Business Ideas

  • Bookkeeping Business
  • Tax Preparation Business
  • Coaching
  • Consulting
  • Content Creator
  • Writing Agency
  • Digital Marketing
  • Notary Signing Agent

Of course this is a short list of online home businesses.

If you prefer to work both outside the house and from home, start a local business.

Local Home Business Ideas

  • Home Inspector
  • Realtor
  • Artist
  • Business Consultant
  • Local Marketing
  • Dog Walking/Groomer

Yes, you are required to leave the house to do these jobs. However, you can run the business from your home.

I like to focus on home business ideas you can do online and locally. For example, consult businesses around the world on Zoom but also work with locals too.

You have two potential revenue sources with an online presence and local market.
