Are you the kind of person who likes driving around town or riding your motorbike and have some free time in your hands? Utilize this time and start an errand service business, deliver packages to people and get them to pay you for it.
3. Packing Services
Every time i walk down my apartment building there is a vacant house, that tells you so many people move out on a weekly basis. If you love organizing things, this is a business idea you could try out. Approach friends and family to get some business as you start out and then build up on the referral business.
4. Translation Service
Most of us can speak more than one language, which we can make use of at conferences. Some NGOs have conferences hosting delegates from all over the world, who need translators. If you are proficient in languages such as Chinese or Spanish you can look into job sites for translation opportunities and all you need is some money to get there. And like any other relationship, if you do a good job they shall always contact you.
