Working for somebody from nine to five does provide you security. But, this is Brooklyn! Why settle for something like that if you can actually realize some of your wildest dreams. Believe it or not, but the number of people choosing self-employment is on the rise, and not just in Brooklyn, but in the entire New York. Of course, it is risky, and it might take you some time until you figure it all out, but sometimes you have to take those risks if you want to follow your dreams and succeed. Do not look at the bad sides of owning a small business. Look at all the advantages like making more money, doing what you love, having no boss, having a flexible schedule and so on. So, if you want to enter the world of entrepreneurship, here are some of the coolest business ideas in Brooklyn.
If you know a lot about fitness and have experience in it, why not turn that into your advantage. In Brooklyn, you will see so many gyms and fitness centers opening and you will see so many people looking for personal trainers. That is because people know that good health equals a good life. So, if you think that this kind of small business idea is suitable for you, now is your time to shine. Of course, you can not become a personal trainer overnight. Having a college degree or certain fitness courses is a must. If you have a diploma, people will take you more seriously. Then start building your brand. In the beginning, you can offer in-home consultations, exercise regimes, and personalized nutrition. Do not forget to share inspirational quotes, free exercise videos, yoga lessons for internal solitude and yummy snack ideas as well on your Instagram feed. After some time, you can grow your business. You can open a fitness center or even a gym one day.
Well, in Manhattan, the time of travel planners and agents might be passing. But, in Brooklyn, you can still see many people looking for them as they either do not have time for all that planning, or they have more trust in the agency than in themselves. Either way, if you have experience in this field, consider hiring Dumbo Moving and Storage Brooklyn and opening your small business there. You just have to know how to plan perfect vacations, with ideal locations, beautiful hotels and not break your client’s bank. Moreover, you can give them some advice on the restaurants they can go while they are on the trip, or advise them on the things they can visit there and so on. Or you can specialize your business in certain types of trips, for example, the top ten most scary and haunted places in Kolkata. People still really appreciate these things. So, if you plan on opening this kind of small business in Brooklyn, be sure to provide your clients with something more than just a plane ticket and accommodation.
We all love eating. But we all live in a busy world as well. This is why many people do not have time to cook healthy and home-meals. Just imagine, coming home from a ten-hour shift and having to cook a meal for another two hours. Nobody has time and energy for that. But still many people know how important it is to eat healthy meals. So, if you are a good cook, but want to avoid all the hustle and bustle of working in a restaurant, why not work as a personal chef. You can start by preparing food for parties and events and have a small catering business. Or you can work for one client or one company only. However, in Brooklyn, it would be a good idea to specialize for one group of clients. For example, specialize in cooking for vegan or vegetarian groups. Remember to advertise your services to local families and businesses alike.
Bed and Breakfast Owner
Opening this kind of small business will require you to research the correct licensure from your state. But, if you do get a license to open a ‘bed and breakfast’ you will be able to earn a lot of money. As previously mentioned, everybody loves traveling. But, not everybody has the money for fancy hotels. So, staying in a ‘bed and breakfast’ place is becoming increasingly popular. However, bear in mind that opening this kind of small business will require a lot of time, money and energy. You have to invest in appropriate accommodation, that is to make rooms and other facilities comfortable for your guests. It is advised to start with something small, like offer two or three rooms. This might sound like a simple job. But, do your research, and you will see that being a ‘bed and breakfast’ owner is a 24/7 job. You will have to do a lot of managing, cooking, cleaning, entertaining, welcoming, and advertising your business on social media.
Consider what guests will be traveling to your area to experience and create special packages and themed stays. Alt.tag: An old bed turned into a big flower pot.
Hairdressing and Makeup Artist
Last but not least, the beauty industry. If you are a talented hairdresser or you know how to work wonders with makeup, this is your chance to rise. Nowadays, everybody wants to look their best, but not everybody can afford to go to beauty salons. Moreover, there is always something going on in Brooklyn, or at least, somewhere in New York, so why not take advantage of these events.
Hairdressing and makeup artist can earn a lot of money if they are good at what they do. You do not have to pay for an expensive chair at a salon or own one at that can be really expensive. Instead, you can offer specialized styling and makeup services right to your client’s door.
