Have you cracked the code for landing higher paying jobs at the drop of a hat? If you have a knack for helping your friends or co-workers navigate the process of finding their dream job, nailing an interview, negotiating a better salary or getting a raise at their current day job, other people would be willing to pay for your help too—making this a great side business idea that doesn’t take too much time. Get started by sharing your advice on a personal blog and becoming a career coach on platforms like The Muse and Coach Me where there’s already an existing audience of people looking to make a move in their careers. From there, keep your focus on helping people get real results, building case studies to support this side business idea, and eventually charging for the results you’re delivering clients.
We saw some truly innovative marketing campaigns last year, and some of the most impressive came from the world of print media. There was the advert in Contigo magazine for Brazil-based department store C&A which featured working Facebook like buttons, and there was the Mawbima Mosquito Repellent Paper from Sri Lanka, which was printed with a special ink designed to repel mosquitos and stem the spread of Dengue fever.
I view a café as positioned somewhere between a sandwich shop and full service gourmet restaurant. You will be cooking a lot of items but not everything, and your dining space will be simpler than a fancy dinner spot. So, you save money on buildout both in the kitchen, the equipment and the dining space. And you won’t need as expensive a chef as you would for a full-service restaurant. Furthermore, if you choose your location well you could have a good lunch business, as well as a dinner time business, and you could do fine in the late afternoon time slot too. Then of course you could offer breakfast as well and really fill in your day!
Perhaps the most intriguing of all the maker movement facilitators spotted last year, however, was the Scribble pen. The pen features two ends — one with a nib and one with a scanner. Users can press the scanner against any surface to capture its color, which is then translated into an RGB value. The inks inside the pen are mixed to match that value, and the user can then draw in the color just scanned.

Restaurants have a sky-high failure rate. Steady, loyal patronage may take years to build, and it can be very difficult to rapidly accelerate the process, even with elaborate marketing campaigns. Owners of successful restaurants usually have extensive restaurant experience, work endless hours, and either rely on their large close-knit families for assistance or have a special knack for attracting, retaining, and motivating good kitchen help and waitstaff. On the other hand, to emphasize how hard the business is, many owners of failed restaurants also possess these so-called “success traits.”
In his days as a commercial banker, my father financed a number of health clubs, and they all complained about the same issue: it was relatively easy to sign up new members but hard to retain them, as customers tired of exercising after just a few sessions. This is a business that you can make millions at with even a single location, it is also a business that is riskier than it may first appear. I would suggest starting with a very small location, perhaps even a members-only key-card accessible location with no employees on site, and learn the ins and outs of the business before getting too carried away. And of course, there is all kind of potential for specialization in this field.

Typically, they are getting ad revenue through an ad-serving platform. The ad-serving platform may keep around 35 percent of the revenue. Furthermore, the ad rates that advertising space is sold for on blogs through ad servers tends to be very low. So a blog may be a good way to show off your creativity, but less a good way to try to earn even a part-time income.
