Choosing Your Business

If you’re outside, the type of jobs can you would want to consider are:

·     Construction

·     Dog Walking

·     Delivery

·     Farming

·     House Painting

·     Yard work

·     Tours

Couldn’t you meet three of the five objectives on your list with any of the six businesses? You can be outside, laugh and help people. Then if it’s your own business, you can involve your family and friends.

You might think this is a very simplistic approach, but I believe that we make life complicated. We don’t need to make it as difficult. It’s up to each one of us to decide how we look at and perceive our circumstances and potential.

Do you have a talent that would be valuable in the construction industry? Can you build a fence? Can you repair things that typically need fixing in your home, such as patching walls, staining decks, or replacing tile? You will need special tile tools and if you don’t have them, you might know someone you can borrow them from.

Let’s use the statistics from Entrepreneur Magazine. They found the average national household annual income is $26,000 a year. That would be $2,166 a month, $541 a week or $13.54 an hour.

Could you make enough money walking dogs? If you live in a large metropolitan neighborhood where both husband and wife are working, what would it take for you to make an acceptable income?

If you have a dog, would you pay $15 a week to have someone walk your dog? Could you walk more than one dog an hour? Could you manage four dogs at a time? Four dogs an hour, eight hours a day, at $15 an hour is $480 a week or $1,720 a month..
