Are you interested in being a sole trader? It is desirable for many people to start being their own boss rather than constantly working for others. The range of new careers open to you revolve round traditional services as well as some of the more modern Internet opportunities currently available.
Most traditional services do require a certain amount of training to get started. If you consider working as a child-care assistance or driving instructor in you really do need to apply yourself to some initial training. If you already have specific industry background/education then you might be able to work and home tuition depending on the demand for your subjects.
If you don’t have the requisite skills and want to get started straightaway then there is still a range of opportunities to consider. There is always demand for taxi drivers, gardeners, DIY work, dog walking, house minders, etc. If you have a certain amount of creative flair then you could also get into party planning, specialist catering or even interior design.
The Internet does however provide some of the greatest opportunities for a sole trader. One of the most profitable online business opportunities is affiliate marketing, where you sell other people’s products for a commission. You do however need technical skills to set up and design websites. These self-same skills could also be applied as a freelance web developer/coder.
Finally, new careers on the Internet don’t all require HTML and software development skills. You could also consider doing proofreading or editing for book publishers or authors, translation work or market research. In fact, one of the most profitable online business ventures these days is freelance research work if you have the requisite industry background. If you want to roll with a great amount of flexibility and diverse opportunities then working as a virtual PA is something to also consider.
