Home Décor & Improvement Enthusiast
Possible if you’re more on the artsy side!
You can make this big if you have an innate interest in designing our living spaces and have the grit to work meticulously to find the right things for the right places. You must also have great spatial intelligence and be very good with your hands!
If manual exertion & struggle is your forte, then a great business idea is to start your own home improvement company. This may involve things like advising on small domestic installation works, cabinets, mirrors, assembling expensive furniture, room dividers, or other décor items depending on the site.
There are plenty of homeowners who could benefit from your skills!
There is a huge untapped serviceable market out there especially with the rising disposable income of the expanding middle classes in India. They do not intend to spend on unnecessarily expensive interior designers but also have a specific taste for design. They should not be very hard to find!
This demands a lot of gruelling hours and loads of travel too, especially for flocking the right stuff from the right sources. You can also try hosting your own self-sourced / handmade products on your website or Amazon or other e-commerce portals or even at a local farmer’s market. Who knows – you might even have your own brick-and-mortar store one day!
Design in colour and swag
Style logos, intuitive websites or fancy flyers & posters as well as other types of media for companies and businesses desperately in need of professionally designed saleable or marketable material that is promotion-worthy!
As a Travel Planner, you get to make people’s wildest vacations come true as well as secure their plans to peaceful family destinations or romantic getaways. You will be working at your own comfort while planning, booking, and arranging a memorable holiday for your clients. This type of an independent no-strings-attached career suits those who are organized and customer-service-oriented with obviously a strong passion for travelling. This outranks all unique business ideas.

Two things you must have:
- A proper editing platform for your videos or photos
- A secure POS (Point of Sale platform) to run payments for any projects you run for clients
