Ideas on How to Become Self Employed and Fire your boss.

When you are trying to figure out how to become Self Employed, it can be sometimes difficult if you have no idea what you want to do, especially if you hate what you currently do for a living. I want to share with you some Self Employed type businesses that are either interesting or pretty easy to get into.

Dog TransportDog Transporter:

So, I’m sitting in the Airport in New Orleans and here is this young lady with an English Bulldog. I asked her about the dog, and found out that she is transporting this dog to China for him to be a show dog. She gets paid $2,500.00 per transport, on top of travel, hotels, and expenses. She had 5 booked for this month. I thought that was really cool. Obviously she was guarded about how she got int

o that business, but that was a really great service. The nice thing about it, was plenty of travel all paid for by the client. Or, you can take this idea and apply it to some other product, but you get the idea. This one will take some research, but if you want to become self employed, you will have to put in some elbow grease.

  • Have a technical skill? Are you a Grammar Nazi? Can you whip out logos in your sleep?
  • Are you an expert in the difference between African and European Swallows?

Well, there is an awesome place for you to go showcase your skills and make a lot of good money if you are a good at your craft. It’s a site called Fiverr. You can advertise your skills on a global stage and everything is organized by skill category making it easier to find you.

Obviously, they have a ton of other skills that allow you to be self employed, so they are worth a look just to see if there is anything you might suit your skill.

Dive baby Drive:

A very popular means now a days to become self employed is to drive for companies like Uber or Lyft.

You need a valid license, and a vehicle (dependable of course). Having some people skills come in handy, but not necessarily required. You can do it part time, or if you get really into it, you can make it a full time gig.


Mobile pet grooming:

Going back to the world of pets, if you have a love for pets, you could consider a mobile dog grooming business. With so many people now a days who care more for their pets than their fellow human beings, these types of businesses are growing in demand. As I travel around Houston on any given day, I tend to see at least one vehicle advertising said service.

Kind of along that same vibe, another way if you are wondering how to become self employed, is to have a mobile car wash and detailing service. You really need a tuck for this one. Plus a pressure washer and some large tanks of water. However, I have seen this service being done by some as a full time business. Getting the right clientele, could net you some pretty profits.
