Show off your background, describe your thorough vetting process, and have a very professional looking website and marketing materials.

The big drawback to most retail ventures is that they are competing head to head with bigger retailers, as well as online sellers, who may sell brand name goods for lower prices than you can buy them for. Well a resale shop takes all that competition away. Choose your specialty carefully. Sporting goods and vintage clothing are good bets to consider.
Fake flowers can be marketed in a number of ways. You can promote them on Pinterest since the wedding niche is massive on the platform making it a great audience to tap into. You’ll need to create infographic wedding pins or blog posts that can drive traffic back to your website. The secret of monetization here is to have a Facebook retargeting running at all times to turn blog visitors into customers. Since not all blog readers will know you have products, it’s always a good idea to retarget them after they’ve left your site. Organic traffic will also be huge if you focus on ranking for keywords related to fake flowers or artificial flowers. For this startup idea check out Afloral.com for inspiration.

When I was running my book publishing company I developed a series of books called the Everything series and I negotiated a deal to buy the “everything.com” domain from a company controlled by Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen for over $100,000. The market for good domain names isn’t going away and you can make money trading these names, but I would be careful in putting too much money into names that are “almost” great names.
Use the law of supply and demand to your advantage. Most of us are familiar with the law of supply and demand–the more there is of something, the cheaper it is; conversely, the rarer the product or service, the more expensive it is. However, other than when we get to a toy store before sunrise to get on line for the latest fad toy that kids can’t get enough of, we don’t really apply the law of supply and demand to our own lives–particularly our careers. For example, if you’re aspiring to do something that many, many other people want to do (so much so that they do it for free, as a hobby) then it will be far more challenging for you to make money doing it. On the other hand, if you do something that most people don’t want to do, or if you get very good at doing something most people don’t do all that well, then you can make a whole lot more money. In other words, choose a career in pharmacy over photography.

The more successful a service business is, the more time you’re likely to have to invest in the business, since you are essentially trading your time for money. For example, if you have a photography business, every new client will cost money, require more time and add complexity to the business. Selling items online, in contrast, is easier to scale as a business, since the difference between selling ten and 12 items isn’t all that much. Easiest of all is a business that sells a digital product. The added cost and complexity that comes with every added customer of a piece of software is very small, since there is nothing to package or ship. For this reason, a company like Facebook, Dropbox and, indeed, Vinewave is hyper-scalable.

I remember my first job was a junk mail delivery boy when I was about 12. Didn’t pay much at all – didn’t enjoy it much at all either. I then went on to working in a retail shop as a shop assistant, moved onto a joinery shop, and then finally I was doing painting part time by the time I got to university (full time during the holidays).
Having your house cleaned by someone else is no longer only for the rich and all you need to start this business is some basic cleaning supplies. With everyone getting busier all the time, more people than ever are willing to pay to get the benefits of a cleaner home and more free time to do things they consider to be more important. Residential cleaning services are normally provided on a once-a-month or once-a-week basis. If you’re an organized person who can build a clientele, you could do extremely well if you start a cleaning business.
Start a small business. Being passionate usually translates to a superior product and better service, which is especially sought after in the age of the anonymous, 1-minute online review. Worried that there isn’t a market for your interests? The fact is that though you may not personally know many people who want what you have to offer, thanks to the internet, there’s a huge market for niche-products (pigeon diapers, chainmail wedding dresses, you name it)… and you might just end up being a trend-setter. To create an online store, you can either make your own website or, if don’t want to self-host, you can sell on eBay or a similar site.
