Whether you have a job or not, being a boss of your own guarantees your success on raining days. Here are a number of businesses you can groom and market from your house without worrying about getting an office space.
1. Interior Decorator
People purchasing new homes can often be overwhelmed with the choices and possibilities in home decorating. Design some questionnaires for each major element and each major room in the house will make your work stand out. Find out how the homeowner will use the home–are there children, pets? Does the woman of the house wear high heels? Do the home’s residents neglect to remove shoes? How will each room be used? Market your s kills to home owners and make money making people happy with the aesthetics of their home.

- Personal Trainer
Advertise your services in places where everyone goes, like restaurants and grocery stores. Having a website is a good idea–people want some privacy in their decision-making when it comes to getting fit. They can go to your website and determine if your approach to personal training is an approach that would work for them. It is important to emphasize the safety aspect of using a personal trainer. You can help clients get fit and avoid injury.
If you have a knack for sewing, upholstery repair might be a perfect business for you. One of the best ways to learn how to upholster is to get some discarded upholstered furniture and start tearing them apart. Many books and videos online are available to help you learn this trade. You can also repair and refurnish furniture as well.
- Computer Training
If you are proficient in the use of computer, you can offer training to people who want to learn. You could probably make a living helping children and seniors learn how to use the internet and e-mail to make them technology savvy. On the side of caution in this business. People do not want to know all the details about what makes a computer work. If you overload them with information from the beginning by explaining bits, bytes, and megapixels, they will stick to their paper and pencil forever, so take baby steps on only things they need to know for their basic usage.
- Graphic Designer/ Website Developer
Despite the proliferation of the internet, print media is here to stay for the foreseeable future! Fliers, newsletters, magazines, information sheets, letters and advertisements are just a few of the types of print media that businesses hire freelancers to create for them. Websites and online advertising need graphic design services as well. Even if your expertise is only in design, offer the works for potential clients, including the editorial creation and the printing and even mailing of the final piece. You can also learn how to develop websites as an added advantage to your portfolio of skills you can teach at a cost.
This business is very lucrative as most people prefer to rent some things for an event or for personal use than buying. You could rent your car, a part of your house, rent clothes, books and anything rentable.

Everyone needs security and you can be a middle man between the skilled men and the individual/companies that need them.

You can never go wrong with food business – food is life! You don’t need a restaurant to be a caterer. Approach various companies and offer to deliver lunch every work day.
