If you have already an idea here are some tips on how to start a business.

Bookkeeping Services

Small businesses usually need help with their books. An accountant was the first role that I outsourced because I am a creative and really bad at numbers. If you have the skills and tools to start a bookkeeping service I’m sure local businesses (and not so local thanks to the internet).

Virtual Assistant

If you are good at organising and helping, this is a great small business to start. A virtual assistant helps freelancers and smaller companies with admin jobs. When you are too small to employ a full-time person, a virtual assistant is a perfect solution.
