    Hi everyone,

    27 year old male registered nurse. Like my career but dont exactly love it to be honest. A artist of somewhat and also have always enjoyed action sports. Would like to start a side business with my excess income but not exactly sure what I should do. Kind of vague but any insight would be much appreciated.

    An artist of some sort? Perhaps you could start something in that if you like doing that as a hobby. What kinds of things do you enjoy doing? You need to make a list of hobbies and activities and just things you enjoy and go from there.

    You can do part time nurse assistance job by creating a data base of all nurses for hospital or clinic....like a consultancy services....0 investment require for this

    No matter what you decide to do for the side business, if you're in it for profit, you want to know the market for it first. Find out how your competition is doing, what they're doing and how they're doing it. Go into that business prepared and research ahead of time all the factors that go into starting a business.

    Another thing to keep in mind is clientèle and exposure. If it's an art form, like you mentioned, you might want it to just be a hobby first and gather exposure through social media channels and friends/family before making it for profit. That way you can get the feedback and exposure you need, so you won't start completely from scratch (and maybe have a few clients at launch).

    There are many things to keep in mind, but two really stand out to me.


    First, figure out what you are good at. For example, if you enjoy photography but your pictures always seem blurry, poorly centered, uninteresting or out of focus, then photography is probably not a good side business to get into. There is competition today in almost every imaginable business. If you cannot meet the competition's quality, then it is unlikely you're going to build a successful site business.


    Once you come up with a list of things you are good at, take a long hard look at the market for the goods or services you could provide. Is the market too small to support even a part-time site business? If the market is large enough, is there too much competition already? It may be a big pie but it can only be divided so many ways. Are there barriers to entry in the marketplace that either prevent you from entering at all or throw up roadblocks that will make entry expensive and/or risky?

    There are so many part time work. You have to find the b2b marketplace where you can get the result and the business opportunity
