Confusion on what career to follow is very common. At times people have a job but are not satisfied and happy with their career option. On the other hand it is possible that one is not clear if one wants to take up a job or start their own business. Even those who wish to start their own business at times don’t have a clear idea how to go about it.

At this moment it is a very good idea to take a look at your strengths and your interests. It is very important to like what you are doing in order to give it your full potential and then ultimately be successful.

Let’s take a look at a few business ideas that can set the ball rolling:

  • Providing services: the service industry is booming nowadays. People are always on the lookout for plumbers, carpenters, electricians to help in doing the odd jobs around the house. This career option needs knowledge in that particular field. Basic knowledge in repair services can help one pursue this career. Being a mechanic is also a good option for someone who is interested in cars.
  • Beauty and fashion: providing beauty treatments either from your own home or by going to client’s house is another good option for a skill based career. Basic knowledge in beauty treatments and a pleasant personality is required to be successful. Designing and stitching clothes from the house is another low investment business option.
  • Knowledge based: as the previous business options were more inclined towards skilled knowledge people with book knowledge can also have their own business. You can start book keeping, auditing, accounting for other business. You need to have a degree in accounting for this.

Starting a business is not a very difficult option to earn a living. But you need to realize that everything in life comes only when you work hard for it and are honest in your dealings with yourself as well as your customers.
