    Hi

    If you are thinking about starting your own home-based business, the available options can be overwhelming. Here’s a look at some tried-and-true home-based business ideas that have growth potential, now and in the future.

    1. Tutoring: You can start a business tutoring students in their homes, at schools, or at local YMCAs or other child-care organizations. Talk to your local school district officials and school principals to determine their needs.

    2. Business coaching: Do you have experience in management or some other specialized business skill? Share it with others by becoming a business coach. The International Coach Federation provides certification and a coach referral service for its members.

    3. Consulting: If you are an expert in a specific industry, such as finance, marketing, or mediation, consider beginning your own consulting business.

    4. Medical and legal transcription: If you have transcription skills and the necessary equipment, you can easily work from home for a variety of different companies. Check local community colleges or search online for transcription training courses.

    5. Medical claims billing: This industry is one of the most popular work-from-home businesses.

    6. Accounting: There are many opportunities available for certified public accountants. If you are interested in getting certified, take a look at the Web site of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants for information on specific state requirements.

    Keep sharing and reading

    Thanks

    Most small business owners have limited funds in hand, so it is must for them to analyze various aspects of the business before making any investment or implementation of any policy. Companies like ‘fintel’ provide analytical tools and reports about various aspects of business as per your parameters.

    There are thousands of business possibilities that you can think off, but the real deal is we need to have dedication, I've heard of several people who started out with almost nothing but become successful because of their dedication and hard work.

    that's quite ture. nothing achievement could be made without perfect dedication ,endurance and a good sense of business . Home-based business is harder on the aspect that no body else would inspect you and give comment on what you are doing.

    Great ideas.

    I am business coach for 22 years myself, and my personal experience is that coaching is really good area to start small business. It's best to start busines in the area in which you have knowledge and are interested in.

    Yours,

    Henry

    Henry, what skills would you say are required by someone starting a business as a business coach?

    Are franchises a good option to consider if entering this market?

    Thank you for the information. It is really good for those who want to start their business at home. While the opportunity to start a new business venture may be exciting to most there is a great deal of work that is involved in pursuing this venture and that may be overwhelming to many.

    Very nice post. Anyway, you can also start a business at home by selling personalized shirts online. That would be very easy to operate. Some people wanted their shirts to be personalized. And probably you can found market online.

    Freelancing can also be considered as a home based online business where someone sells his/her service online. There are lots of business opportunities that are available online because of the large market that it covers. This post is just an addition to the main idea of this thread. That was a very informative post. All of you should keep the good information coming.

    Hi

    1. Computer repair. Are you the person everyone calls when they have a computer problem? Turn this into a business and start getting paid for fixing fatal errors. Check out Geeks on Call America and Rescuecom if you are interested in franchise opportunities.
    2. Cleaning service. If you are good at cleaning, consider offering your services to others. One way to go is with a franchise. CleanNet-USA and JaniKing are two of the largest franchisers in the cleaning market.
    3. Carpet cleaning service. There are many popular franchises that allow you to start your own carpet cleaning business and receive the equipment and training you need. ServiceMaster Clean and ChemDry are two of the bigger ones.
    4. A riding school. If you own your own barn, land, and horses, you can open your own riding school. Equisearch.com offers resources, including some useful articles on liability issues.
    5. Child-care services. Turn your expertise with children into one of the most popular home-based business opportunities.

    Thanks
