Small Business Ideas Millenials Will Love
Millenials get a lot of trash talk directed at them from a lot of corners. They are often branded as being lazy, overly sensitive and unambitious, but that stuff is frankly ridiculous. Most Millennials are hardworking multitaskers who value freedom, flexibility and collaboration over more traditional modes of working. It isn’t, then, surprising that many Millenials are actively running their own businesses, or at least thinking of doing so.
If you’re a Millennial and you’re looking to strike out on your own and set up a new busienss, here are some ideas that you’re sure to love:
Many older people would scoff at the idea of blogging being a business, but again they are dead wrong. If you treat blogging as a business, working hard on it every day to make it the best it can be and exploring various revenue streams, then you can make a decent amount of money from it and you can do so on your own terms, setting your own schedule and doing work that you truly love. What could be better than that?
Running a Microbrewery
You might not know your brewery hose from your beer barrels right now, but if you love the taste of craft beers and you have an interest in the subject, you can learn the technicalities and potentially set up a very lucrative operation. Craft beer is big business now and if you can produce a drink that tastes good, appeals to your peers and which is the right price, you could be on to a really good thing. It won’t be quite as flexible as blogging, perhaps, but it could be even more rewarding.
Yes, you really can make a business out of talking on camera for a few minutes at a time, Lots of people already do it and some of them are now multi-millionaires. It’s extremely flexible work which again allows you to do what you love and which you can so easily build upon. Obviously, there’s no guarantee that your videos will take off, but that’s true of any business, so what do you really have to lose by giving it a go?
If you have a way with words and you would love to spend your days writing, then setting up your own copywriting agency could be a dream come true. If you have lots of creative friends, you can employ them to get some collaboration going on, or you can build up a team of remote workers, all working from home setting their own schedules, to do the work. It’s one of the most flexible options there is, and in this internet age where the written word is so valuable, it could make you a lot of money.
Selling Your Art
If you want to spend your days engaged in your hobbies; the things that truly make you happy, then selling your arts and crafts on platforms like Etsy, or even your own website and at local markets is surely the way to go. You’ll get to spend the majority of your time producing only stopping to upload your latest creation or attend markets and sales. Bliss.
