Do you need a new career which gives you the flexibility to work for yourself and be your own boss? There is range of services that are perfectly suited to this new type of career path you want to pursue. Best of all, the service economy is one of the growing areas in modern economies as the manufacturing sector is on the decline.

Some of the old traditional services to consider include child care assistance, personal trainers and driving instructors. All of these roles do however require initial training in order for you to be able to start in these positions. If your preference is for a career that involves a certain amount of creativity then you could also consider getting started as an interior designer, doing specialist catering reason getting involved with party planning.

If you do not have the requisite skills, or are not interested in training up, then you still have several new career options open to you. For example, freelance gardening, window cleaning, house minding, dog walking, DIY, etc. all require little in the way of startup costs and give you great amount of flexibility about when and where you work.


The most profitable business ideas which allow you to work for yourself often involve the use of the Internet. You have a greater number of potential customers available to you online. The major opportunity is in affiliate marketing where you promote other people’s products for commissions on your own websites. The skills required to build & design websites can also be applied as a freelance web designer.

If you need a new career which can be done from home, but don’t have the coding abilities, then there are still many Internet opportunities available to you. Why not consider working as a proofreader or editor for magazines, books or websites. Alternatively, if you have several languages then why not translate work as a freelance translator.
