It is true that establishing reliable and substantial streams of income is one of the best things that can happen to any family man. Meanwhile, it is more than true and important that you become an independent worker if truly you want a happy home.
Compared to beeing a boss of your own, working for others is not pleasant for any family man at all. Just imagine the joy of being an independent worker; you get to decide your working hours, you own the funds, you dictate your vacations, you determine your business scheme, and you can even decide to take a day off-work just to be with your wife (Oh! How romantic. xD)
Here’s the good news: You can convert your passion as a family man into a profitable source and earn some big dough for the family. Yea!
If you’re looking to start your own small business as a family man, here are 7 basic but highly profitable business ideas to look into in 2018:
Do you have a passion for agriculture? If you do, there is definitely a market out there for you.
Research shows that one U.S. farm feeds 165 people annually in the U.S. and abroad. Meanwhile, since the global population is expected to increase to 9.7 billion by 2050, this means the world’s farmers will have to grow about 70 percent more food than what is now produced.
The agricultural market is an ever growing one. As consumption rises, the demand for more agricultural produce will continue to surpass supply. So, if you’re experienced in the field of agriculture, it’s a nice way for you to earn some cool money for the family.
Various areas of agriculture that you can venture into include: Pet sitting, fish farming, plantation farming, animal grazing, herb growing, livestock feed production, poultry, rabbit raising, milking, honey production, meat packing, mushroom planting, cultivation of Christmas/season trees, etc.
2. Fitness coach:
If you’re a family man that hits the gym regularly, launching a fitness business could be right for you.
The fitness business is specified across providing personal training, fitness directives, gym guidance or the use of a fitness facility to your patrons – to boost their chances of achieving their fitness goals.
And the truth of the matter is that you don’t have to be a “gym guru” before launching your fitness organization, you might just need to get the right equipment, employ a fitness expert, and get certified; to increase client’s confidence in your service.
3. Driving For Uber:
For family men who love the wheels, launching a driving job can just be right for you. Meanwhile, you can ace your game. How? By driving for Uber.
Uber has really become one of the most hassle-free ways for family men with a relatively clean driving record to start working for themselves and earn it big! The most interesting thing about this job is that you only get to work as an independent contractor and you decide just the hours you want to work – directly meaning you can pursue some other works, while you use the driving job for relaxation and flexing.
Getting started is as simple as clicking the signup link on Uber home page to create your profile. Afterwards, a background check would be conducted, after which the vehicle inspection follows. Then you’re set! Start earning some extra cash for the family.
If video recording or photography is something you derive joy doing, then you could make a lot of money to take care of your family by starting a photography business.
Henri Cartier-Bresson, a French humanist photographer and a master of candid photography, once cited that the photography business is one of the most adorable yet profitable businesses for any family man.
If you’re thinking of starting your photography business, here is a startup guide.
5. Auto transport business:
If you’re an expert in handling cars and traveling, starting up your own auto transport business is definitely worth a look.
The car shipping business is yet another awesome business option for family men, as the likes of Nicholas Dutko and other successful men are doing pretty well in the field.
There is high demand to have vehicles moved from one location to another; both inter-state or inter-country, and you can take advantage of this business with a relatively small investment to make some big money for the family.
6. Real estate agent:
While there are just so many businesses for family men, real estate management can be highly profitable. Its independent and flexible work schedule makes it even more comfortable for family men.
The process of becoming a real estate agent and earning a living out of it differs with location. In some parts of the country, you must undergo series of training and courses before declaring yourself to be one, while in some states you just have to know the rightful property owners, and boom – you’re off to make the dough.
Besides, becoming a real estate agent would not only help you feed the family, in the long run, you also stand the chance of acquiring substantial assets for the family.
7. Blogging & Freelance:
Blogging and freelancing can also be a great business idea for introvert/not-too-outgoing family men.
Having spent more than three years in the field of blogging and freelancing, I have seen this business grow even wider. As more business continues to develop, the demand for unique content for effective brand awareness and content marketing is constantly increasing.
Although blogging and freelancing isn’t a get-rich-quickly scheme, you can be sure that with consistency and creativity you’ll earn a whole lot of living.
