Things You Should Have to Start a Business

Hey there! Mommy Dorry here. . .

Do you agree with the statement “owning a business is better than being employed”?

If you’re bouncing back the question to me, my answer is YES. However, today you can keep both, running a business while keeping your day job or being employed. Starting a business is within the reach of almost anyone who is hardworking. There are types of businesses that don’t require your full-time commitment like franchising fast food chains, running hair salons, fitness centers, looking for mortgage protection leads as an insurance agent, and others.

Establishing a business and making it successful does not come overnight. It takes planning, time, finances, permits, licenses, insurance like MicroBiz Protek Jr., and other factors you should have once you open a business. Now, are you ready to pursue and run your own business? Here’s the things you should have for kickstarting your new or additional endeavor in life.

Summer Business Ideas For Extra Income

Need extra cash? No problem! It’s time to get creative with how you can earn additional income this summer, whether you’re a full-time student or employee. Here are a few business ideas:

1. Be an online tutor.

Since online classes are the norm right now, parents might not have the time to help their kids with homework as they’re busy working from home. You can offer your services as an online tutor to assist friends’ or relatives’ kids struggling to adapt to this new normal.

2. Be a proofreader.

Online communication is so important right now with everything happening either on a mobile device or a computer. If you have a good grasp of technology and have a good command of the English language (or Filipino) then this job may be for you. You can read through articles and assignments, and then make changes when you spot misspellings or grammatical errors the same way you might be doing for the assignment of your kids. If this is something you can do, let your friends and relatives know that you are free to edit their written work.

3. Sell pre-loved items!

You might have gained a bit of weight due to the lockdown or realized you have old things that are rarely used. Turn to online platforms like Shopee, Lazada, or Carousell to declutter your old things and make money at the same time! Just make sure what you’re selling is still usable and in good working condition.

Smart Real Estate Investments Amidst The Pandemic

Most people from around the world have been locked down for a very long time or are still on lockdown inside their house or apartment. This pandemic isn’t just changing the way we feel about our homes but it has a huge impact on property markets around the world, as well.

It is fairly clear that with business failures, job uncertainty, massive unemployment, and wage cuts, many people will be cautious about making investments amidst the recent outbreak and the recession.

In most historic recessions, financial experts prove that the property market has either remained largely resilient or was only impacted across certain real estate sectors. But once cities and states reopen, that would be a reasonable time to think about buying a real estate property.
