Have you ever woken up in the morning absolutely dreading going to work because your boss is a complete pain, your coworkers get on your nerves and you find yourself going out of your mind bored? If the answer is yes, it might be time to make a change. Going self-employed is a popular choice for lots of people that like doing things their own way, or are just fed up of dealing with annoying employers. People are afraid to take the plunge because there’s a lot of risk involved and you need to put a decent amount of money behind it. But that doesn’t mean you can’t do it, in fact, there are plenty of business opportunities that are easy to set up and pay good money. Check out these top three picks here.
If you’ve got good qualifications and you’re good at explaining things, you could easily become an academic tutor. There are plenty of kids out there that need help with all sorts of different subjects but ideally, you want to be proficient in English, Maths, and Science. You can advertise yourself locally and see if there is anyone in your neighborhood that needs help. If you want to widen your scope, there are plenty of sites online that can match you up with people and you can give them lessons over Skype which is perfect for anybody that wants to work from home. You don’t need any extra qualifications to be a tutor, you just need to know your subject area well, so it’s simple to get started right away. You can earn around $40 an hour if you’re a good tutor. Get a few regular sessions going and you can make a living out of it quite easily.
Getting into real estate is another fairly simple career path. You need to have a license and training before you’ll be able to start finding properties to sell but you can do online real estate training courses from home to get everything you need. It’s a flexible way of getting accredited and once you’ve completed the course, you can start advertising and finding people’s houses to sell right away. It’s up to you how much you spend on startup costs but the more money you put into marketing yourself, the more money you’ll make back. Property prices are on the rise, and so is the commission that you’ll make from selling them.
If you absolutely love your industry and you’ve made good progress, but you hate the company that you’re working for, why not become a consultant? It’s a great way to use the skills you’ve learned, but on your own terms without a frustrating boss making all of your decisions. It’s only something you should consider if you’ve been working in a given for a couple of years because a consultant needs to be an expert in their field if anybody is going to trust them.
These are just three of the many options out there. If you’re fed up with working on somebody else’s terms, why not take the plunge and go self-employed.
