Being unconventional can be a huge advantage as an entrepreneur. Rather than try some of the most popular ideas, you want to do something a bit different. Here are 5 unique home-based business opportunities worth considering.
1. Bed Bug Barrier
Bed bugs and other pests are a growing problem. Some companies sell bed bug barriers to both homeowners and hotels that want to keep them in check.
2. Doll Repair
Many people are extremely attached to their dolls. Some businesses offer doll repair services when parts break.
3. Hangover Treatments
Over a million people search for hangover cures on Google every month. Some aspiring entrepreneurs have recognized the market and started selling services to help them.
4. Self-serve Dog Wash
Many companies offer pet grooming services. However, some have taken a unique twist by allowing pet owners to do the job themselves. It may seem strange that people would actually pay to wash their own dog, but some people are actually doing it. The entrepreneurs can just sit back and watch.
5. Lawn Mowing Goats
Goats were used to cut grass long before the lawnmower was invented. A couple of companies in California have brought the trend back and started using goats to help neighbors and commercial properties cut their grass. There is a growing market for this in areas that are concerned about environmental sustainability and want to support local businesses.
If you are interested in starting a business, then you may want to look for ideas that your competitors haven’t considered. These businesses have shown that there is a demand for products and services that you probably never considered.Sometimes the most profitable ideas are the oddest, so don’t close your eyes to ideas that seem weird.
