The best solution is for them to hire house cleaner. Therefore, house cleaning is one of the small business ideas that can thrive in such environment. Busy executives and moms with a new baby need someone who can help them mop the floors and clean the windows.

Even though this is a home business, you need to visit your clients to carry out the cleaning. Apart from the climbing of walls, house cleaning is a good small home based business idea for women and teens.

    • Hi Sudheesh,

      Starting your own business is a good decision. It is also good to note that you can identify your areas of interest. Meanwhile, I want to advise that you don’t need to wait till the time you’ve graduated before you start working on your business ideas. You can use this period to conduct both primary and secondary researches about your business ideas. This will enable to decide whether the ideas are worthwhile. School is also a good place to network and also acquire some skills which can help you in the future. Your friends and colleagues may be your first customers when you eventually start your business.

  9. Wow, I wonder how you found so many business ideas 🙂
    apart from buying and selling on ecommerce, there is one more thing called b2b web portal. Since all the services are free of cost, you can either buy, sell or trade offline via online listing information provided there on. Happy Business
