Ideas...That WORK!

Raise your expectations. These 10 best home based business ideas are solid, income generating, practical and proven to work. Reviewing these sound business opportunities will not waste your time.

Because, I share with you some top opportunities to work from home that I have personal knowledge of or have friends who actually earn significant income working from home either on a part time or full time bases. They have shared their experiences with me. Now I share with you.

I believe these 10 best home based business ideas, along with the helpful resources in how to start them, can lead to bright times for you and your family.


Not Exciting But Proven Winning Opportunities

1.  Take Online Surveys…Ideal Part Time Job

You may not make a fortune filling out dozens upon dozens of Internet surveys, but you can earn money for the amount of time you devote to the effort.

The key is to find the right high paying surveys to take.

Searching the Internet for surveys is too risky (scams abound).

You don’t know whether they are legit or not, let alone if they will even pay you!

I share this helpful resource to assist your efforts.

2.  A Bookkeeping Service

Yes, this is definitely not an exciting work at home job, at least not for me.

However, bookkeeping is a need of most small businesses, the ones that the large accounting firms ignore.

Charging a small business owner a monthly service fee of $75 and then $300 to $400 to do their year-end taxes adds up to be real money.

The real-world resources on how to do this will make life easier to get you started.

3.  Dog Training at Home

There is a huge reason this makes my list of the 10 best home based business ideas…it’s a needed service, you may start earning part time and, of course, it’s fun and very well paying.

As a dog trainer you have multiple options for making money right from your home.

Learning the basics and one or two dog training specialties only adds to your revenue stream.

4.  Home Catering

There is a ton of money to be made in catering.

Catering business and social events while working from home drastically reduces your overhead.

The “in” kinds of catering are Kosher, Vegan, Organic, BBQ and, of course, corporate themed events.

Finding out how to start your catering business not only reduces your mistakes and wasted time, it also puts you miles ahead of your competitors.

Here’s where you can find out more and change your life forever!

9.  The Different Travel Service: One that Makes Money

The travel industry is still a great opportunity. You just have to think of it differently.

The traditional agency is not alive and well.

An agency that specializes in a geographic area or focuses on a certain demographic does rather well and increasing in popularity.

Another kind of agency is one that packages their own trips to a specific area of the planet or for a specific population group. For example;

  • Youth travel to a major city like Paris, Frankfort, Rome, etc.
  • Senior citizen travel
  • Gay travel
  • Single travel
  • Family travel

The key is to be different and then develop an effective marketing plan. This works!

10.  Sell Products Through Drop Shipping

The last but not the least of the 10 best home based business ideas that work is drop shipping.

One of the fastest growing online opportunities is drop shipping.

Essentially, you sell products on your website. In turn, they pay you via credit card. You sent the cost of the item you just sold to a dropshipper, who, in turn, sends that purchased product to your custom using your company name.

Once you educate yourself to this form of retailing, the sky is the limit for generating profitable sales.

For the serious entrepreneur, this is a real winner!
