Interesting and profitable home business ideas

Home business or freelancing has many benefits:
- the ability to independently plan your day, and not work from call to call;
- no bosses;
- no need to waste time on the road (in megalopolises it can take up to 5 hours a day);
- flexibility, mobility, the ability to quickly master a new promising profession;
- unlimited opportunities for earning and career growth;
- the ability to combine with the main work.

- it can be difficult to plan your day on your own;
- lack of socialization, communication with colleagues;
- no fixed guaranteed salary, vacation pay and sick leave ;
- Not everyone knows where to start in order to quickly reach a good level of income.
The last two drawbacks are perhaps the most significant.

How to make money as a housewife or become a “daddy who is always at home”
Until now, many people believe that serious money can be obtained either in business or in a high position for hire. But successful examples of ordinary people show how to make money for a housewife, schoolchild, mother on maternity leave and any average person, regardless of location, gender and age. The main thing is to find a successful business idea and implement it correctly.
Tatyana Bakalchuk, the owner of the Wildberries online store, started her small business by trading in German catalogs. Then she did not have global business plans, but just wanted to earn some money on maternity leave. Now her business is considered one of the largest in Russia, and her fortune is estimated at $ 375 million.
And 16-year-old English schoolgirl Bo Jessup earned about 50 thousand pounds in 2021 from a site that helps Chinese people come up with sonorous English names for their children. There are many thousands of such examples.
If you're ready to try your hand at remote work or home business, first define:
- how much time are you willing to devote to work from home. It is believed that for successful homework you need to have at least 2 free hours a day. The main thing is consistency. For starters, you can combine work from home with your regular work.
- what you can and love to do. You probably have your favorite hobbies: some are good at writing texts, the second know how to keep accounts or draw up business plans, the third - to sew, embroider or work with your hands, and the fourth - to be creative in a particular area. Each person has their own talent or at least abilities. To begin with, write down everything that you like and in which you have at least minimal experience, even if now it seems to you that you will not be able to monetize these skills.
- how much it is in demand on the labor market. Now it's time to find out how much you can earn from it. The numbers will be approximate, but you can already push off from them. Check sites that offer similar jobs or services. If you like sewing dolls, monitor websites of handmade toys, see prices for finished dolls, correlate them with costs.
- rate your level and need for training. Perhaps now you can start mastering a new type of activity and quickly reach a good level of income, but maybe first you need to go through training. You can find many courses online, including free ones.
Don't be discouraged if you can't earn a lot at once. In any business, professionals receive decent wages, and your task is to grow to this level. This usually takes several months of hard work; the exact date depends on the chosen direction, your abilities and efforts.
Home production ideas are gaining unprecedented popularity today. The reason is in the expansion of programs to support small and medium-sized businesses, production in the regions and at the federal level and an understandable, understandable desire to work for oneself, individually or as a family contract. The main thing is to competently resolve the issue of organization by settling legal issues. And (most importantly), find a working idea, original or popular. In the latter case, one must be prepared for the fact that at the initial stage, entrepreneurship will take all the time of a novice businessman, since it is not easy to overcome the barrier of competition and enter an industry where the idea is already being successfully implemented by others. But directly in production, this problem is most easily overcome, since this field of activity is mastered by less than 25% and the idea here can be expanded and adapted by changing the working conditions, offering fundamentally new products to the consumer.
Opening home production
Having decided on the topic, direction, you should think about the organizational and legal form of the case.
If the production is small and there are enough funds to start on your own, you can start by registering as an individual entrepreneur.
It's cheap (the fee is 800 rubles, it's easy to figure out the nuances of registration). In the absence of even basic knowledge in the field of jurisprudence, you can order the service of opening an IP. Depending on the region, it will cost 2,000 - 10,000 rubles.
If the production business opens up jointly, and there are several founders, the easiest way is to register as an LLC (legal entity).
There is another advantage of this choice. Unlike an individual entrepreneur, which is responsible for obligations and debts with the personal property of an entrepreneur, such liability does not apply to an LLC, therefore, there is less risk. On the other hand, an individual entrepreneur can dispose of his current account and cash desk at his own discretion, while expenses for the personal use of these assets are unacceptable for an LLC.
Review of the entrepreneur: We decided to produce wardrobes with a brother-in-law, since both he and I worked in such a production as workers for different owners. One by one, there was not enough money for equipment and materials; First, they wanted to organize an LLC. But then they changed their minds. You won't see your money like that.
It is difficult to withdraw, a competent accountant is needed, and at first we could not afford such expenses. They organized an individual entrepreneur for me, fortunately, everyone trusts each other, they are satisfied, the costs have been reduced, the business has gone up the hill.

It is best to open such a mini-hotel in a private house so that the pets have a place to frolic.
