5 Realistic Home Based Businesses

1.  Personal Trainer or Yoga Instructor

Yoga is a trend that appears to be here to stay and people are fanatical about their fitness.  With these two careers it is extremely feasible to visit your clients at their home or office.  All that is required to get started is proper certification, basic equipment and a touch of marketing ingenuity.

2.  Medical or Legal Transcription 

Both preform necessary functions and therefore will remain in high demand.  There is low overhead with these opportunities.  You'll need a computer, internet access, a printer, audio playback software and a dictionary (medical for medical and legal for legal).  This is easy to start with minimal training.

3.  Senior Care Services

Everyone knows senior citizen population is growing.  This means BIG opportunity for non-medical home care providers.  Services might include transportation, house cleaning, dietary assistance, shopping or simply companionship.


4.  Event/Wedding Planner

While a down economy make limit daily splurges, the wedding and special event market will always command big dollars.  To be successful you must be organized.  Focus your efforts on vendor relationships.  Certification may be helpful but not required.

5.  Crafting

You have probably heard of etsy.  I'm here to tell you that there is legitimate money to be made here.  Time will be your biggest investment with this career and of course creativity is a must.
