1. RAKING LEAVES
Once a household chore, now a business opportunity! The amazing thing about creating a leaf raking company is that the trees will keep you in business all fall long! Gather your rakes, trash bags, and maybe a couple of friends, and get ready to take your neighborhood by a storm!
2. HOT COCOA STAND
Take a summer lemonade stand to the next level by setting up your own mini hot chocolate bar! There’s nothing better than a warm cup of hot cocoa on a cold day, and your customers would definitely agree! Fill a portable pot with hot water, bring cocoa packets, or you can premake it and keep it in a warming container like this one.
To really bring your hot chocolate bar to the next level you could offer flavors like cinnamon or mint and toppings like marshmallow, whip cream, or crushed candy cane.
3. PET SITTING
Approaching the holidays, dozens of families will be headed out of town for vacations, to see family, or maybe even a football game! This is a great opportunity to make some cash by taking great care of their pets! Place flyers around your neighborhood and on social media to get started!
4. HOMEWORK HELPER
Are academics your strong suit? If so, with school back in session, being a homework helper may be the perfect small business for you! Offering your tutoring services to other students is a great way to not only make money but to brush up on your school smarts as well!
5. SELLING CRAFTS
If crafting is your passion, now is the perfect time to get a small business up and running! With the fall comes farmers’ markets and flea markets, the perfect place to start selling the things you create with care! Not only this, but you can begin selling your crafts as your market begins searching for the perfect Christmas gifts!
