2017 is really the year of the aspiring entrepreneur. With so many millennials coming up with great and innovative ideas, it can sometimes be a scary task to think of a start-up business of your own. However, this is also the year of opportunity and creativity and the win always goes to the risk-takers who venture out of their comfort zone. So here are some really great and fun business ideas for a start-up in 2017, which is sure to give you some much appreciated rewards.
Are you really good with people? Then why not start on the path of career coaching? All you ideally need is an ability to talk to and inspire people and also help them find the correct path that would work for them in terms of career. Besides, if you also want to make a small difference in people’s lives, this is a great initiative as well. You also get to experience working with so many different age groups, nationalities and various social backgrounds that there will never be a dull day in your work. Not only can you guide people on career changes or how they can finally get that dream job they wanted, but you can also help them be better at interviews and help them fine tune their curriculum vitae as well. From helping a senior citizen take up professional landscaping to guiding a youngster open their own web design and development firm, you will have so much diversity to work with.
Online Retail has never been more promising
Many start-ups are based online these days. Not only does this significantly lower the risks that you have to take in terms of capital but it also has really good scope for growth given that everybody wants to shop with a click now. You don’t even need to be a big time retailer to start your store online. You can choose whether you want to deliver your products to customers or whether you will use a courier and shipping service. All you really need to start off is a great ecommerce website design company in Singapore that will do the fundamentals accurately for you. While you can work with specialty suppliers you can also sell your own handmade items on certain forums that allow it.
Event planning for the fun loving you
This is another area that is really on the growth radar this year. However, while you must be fun-loving, quick on your feet and really creative, you will also need to be very patient, flexible and good at working with different levels of employees. If you think that hectic weekends followed by late nights are for you because the final outcome is worth it, give event planning a go. Don’t limit yourself to private functions, if you have the chops, go for corporate event planning as well. There are many options out there if you are willing to take that leap of faith and make a drastic change in your life. The start will be hard but the end will truly be rewarding.
