You’re busy, yet you’d still like to start earning some extra money and begin feeding your entrepreneurial appetite. Your weekdays are filled with your day job as well as errands, taking care of kids, making sure bills are paid, etc.
What do you do?
Here are 3 weekend businesses that virtually anyone could start tomorrow, all from home:
I say virtually anyone because there will be exceptions for these just as there will be for anything, but let’s get right to it…
1. Weekend pet-care business
I tried to be vague with the title here because you would take this a couple of different ways.
First, a weekend pet-sitting business is an easy business to start with minimal work. All you’ll really have to do is give the animals food and water, and make sure they have a place to do their business.
Many people have trouble finding good care for their pets on the weekend—many animal hospitals and boarding establishments have very few hours on the weekends. So there’s a clear opportunity for someone who can provide a caring environment during that time.
The other way this could be your kind of business is to become a dog walker. There are sites dedicated to matching up people who need their dogs taken for a stroll on the weekends and people who can provide that service. This is an extremely easy way to earn some cash on the weekends.
Advertise on craigslist, in animal hospitals, and on forums for both of these weekend pet-care businesses.
2. Delivery service
Another easy weekend business to start is running errands for people. People are becoming increasingly busier on the weekends, and having someone who can check some weekly to-dos off of their list is something they will happily pay for.
Services you could provide:
- Grocery shopping,
- General errand running,
- Deliver packages to post office,
- Or anything else simple like that.
3. Weekend daycare
Most daycare services are only open on weekdays, leaving a huge gap for people who work on the weekends. This would really be a specialized babysitting service that you could offer.
As long as you don’t mind children, either turning a room in your home into a play area or spending several hours a day at someone else’s home should be relatively easy. And people will also pay a premium for this scarce kind of service.
ALSO, if you’re interested in starting your own business at all, you’ll definitely be interested in The Midas Circle. We’re currently putting the finishing touches on this product, so look out for the launch in the coming weeks.
