I have been brainstorming on starting a small venture for a while now. Something with low startup costs and a flexible schedule works best for me:
  • PC Repair / Cleanup. Send out some flyers locally to advertise PC repair or cleanup for cheap. Maybe do free estimates to start a client base and hopefully referrals spawn from that. Spyware cleanup is extremely easy and many people are clueless on what is causing their PC to slowdown.
  • Build a Website to Sell Products. Build a website to sell high profit margin products. Possibly arrange for the products to be drop-shipped to your customer’s door to avoid extra shipping costs and time. I don't have many ideas on specific products yet.
  • Turn Deals into Profit / Ebay Business. Find a deal on a product and then turn around and sell it for a profit, Ebay is great for this (just watch out for the fees). Great sources are from friends, local papers, online deals (slickdeals, techbargains, fatwallet) or craigslist. Find under-priced products that you know the real value of to make a little cash.
  • Website Design. This has done well for me in the past. I should continue to find clients that need a new website or an old website improved. The pay is generally good, the work isn't too bad and you can work from home and in between tasks.
