The following are home based business ideas that do not
require extensive background training,
education, or start-up money.

What you will need is:

1.Teach. That's right! Teach a course at your local
community center, college, or you might consider setting
up a work-shop in your home. Use that expert knowledge in
fly fishing, golf, sewing, cooking, gardening, computers,
accounting, writing, editing, to start a business fast!.

2. Write. Contact your local community paper and
offer to write a weekly article on a subject you
are very familiar with. One friend who is a herbalist
contacted a local paper offering to write an article on
spec. The editor was very impressed with the depth of
her knowledge ( was clearly shown in the article) and
hired her to write a weekly piece.

3. Ghost. Contact local businesses and offer to write
riveting eye catching ads for their products or services.
Many small businesses are not adept at writing good
ad copy. These smaller companies surely require the
services of a good copy writer.

4. Tour Guide. If you live in a historic area with many
interesting points that tourist would like to visit up
close and personal you might consider starting a walking
tour. Offer unusual historical tidbits they would not
get from the usual tour guides.

5. Secret Shopper. Secret Shopping is a good part time business
for stay at home moms, students, retired folks, or just about
anyone who wants to make an extra income. It's simple to get
into this business and you can work the hours you want.
Basically you will observe the designated business and how
they treat consumers. Then you will compile your findings into
a written report and submit it to your companies district headquarters
via email or regular mail. They will submit your findings to the

music CD's and offer your services to DJ at birthday
parties, graduation parties, anniversaries, family
reunions. Consider specializing in one type of
popular music like Classic Rock, Seventies Hits,
