If you’ve got the attitude (and look), there should be a product or service out there on the hunt for the right model to promote their brand as a side business idea. You can sign up with a large agency, find a freelance agent, or look for your own modeling gigs as an independent talent. Since modeling is a complex field, get all the advice you need before jumping right in and find a mentor who can guide you through some of the early challenges it’ll take to establish your brand.

You can use Forever 21 for inspiration for your bodysuit brand.

Many of the national publicity firms I have used were founded by somebody who had previously had experience working at a media outlet. But this business isn’t rocket science…if you are good at networking and you can get promotion for your clients then you can succeed at this business.

Although product businesses can lead to super riches, the risk and failure rate is very high. You will almost always be competing against larger national or international firms. If you become successful, other firms will try to duplicate your success. Even if you have a great product, just getting into the distribution channel can be very difficult.

You can generally expect to get about what you would get at a yard sale, maybe a little more.
