5 Businesses You Can Start From Home

5 Businesses You Can Start From Home

Struggle for business

Around the Sacramento and Rocklin area there are many home based businesses, just as there are throughout the state of California and beyond. With the country’s current economy it has prompted many people to take a hobby or skill and turn it into a home based business. There are many businesses that will be good picks for doing from home, including these five:

Virtual assistant. Many businesses need administrative and secretarial assistance, yet they lack the funds to put another person on the payroll full time. A virtual assistant provides secretarial work to businesses, but on a freelance basis and from home.
Photographer. While bringing people to your home to take portraits may not be ideal, you can shoot on location, as well as take shots that you sell to magazines, newspapers, and other places that need stock photography.
Consultant. Most people have skills and experience in something. Take what it is that you are an expert on and provide consulting services on it. If you have business experience, offer business consulting. You can do it via phone, through email, or meet at local coffee house.
Child care. Many parents in the Rocklin and Sacramento areas are in need of quality child care services. If you have the patience and space, this can be a lucrative path. Parents would drop off their child, head to work, and pick them up at the end of the work day.
Social media manager. This is perfect for someone who likes marketing, as well as spending time on sites like Facebook and Twitter. Businesses will hire people in this position to help them with their online social media efforts.

This is just a drop in the bucket when it comes to the businesses you can start from home. There are many more. You just need to determine which one best fits your interests, skills, and experiences. Whether you turn a hobby into a lucrative business, or you choose something else, there are options. You want to also make sure that the one you pick is legal to run out of your home, so be sure to get the details on the local laws regarding running particular businesses out of your home. That way you, and your customers, are protected.
