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!
There are plenty of local small businesses that still do not have a website. To overcome this you could start an e-commerce store that sells local products. You could sell to the local community but it could also appeal to a wider audience. You could work with local business owners and negotiate commission for sales you make
Having previous SEO experience, a blogging or editing background, strong communication skills and experience using Google Analytics are desirable. If you have these skills but lack experience, taking online courses is an option. Examples of your successful work and references can help you gain new clients.
If you really want to go into retail, particularly in a category dominated by superstores, you will be a lot better off opening a secondhand store. You may be able to operate with no investment in inventory by only handling goods on a consignment basis—that means that you never actually own the merchandise. Instead, you display the goods and pay for it only after you have sold it.
With most people using their high-quality phone cameras to take pictures, there’s somehow a growing trend towards mirrorless cameras. Mirrorless cameras are more lightweight and compact than DSLRs which make them ideal for photographers who don’t want to lug around bulky inventory. When growing your mirrorless camera store, you’ll want to emphasize the benefits of owning a mirrorless camera instead of a DSLR. You’ll also want to write content about why you should use a mirrorless camera instead of your smartphone for taking pictures.
If you do the gardening or greenhouse ideas, you could also branch out to farmers’ markets where you could sell the produce from your gardening efforts as well. People love supporting local growers and the quality of product at a farmers’ market is much higher than supermarket fare.

India has a variety of breads including chapatti and paratha. You can enter this very lucrative business with an investment of just about Rs. 10,000.

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.
CraigsList – Some things don’t ship very well. Other things may make you feel uncomfortable to sell to someone across the country. Anytime you’re selling a large item or something you just don’t want to ship, Craigslist is a great place to go. It’s simple to list your item (again, take good pictures!). If you don’t like the idea of putting your phone number out there, the interested individual can send you a message to your inbox without even getting your email address.
This is a great part-time business because you decide when you want to work. And except for work requiring licenses, you can decide how much work you want to contract out and how much you want to do yourself.
