We feel more comfortable and relaxed when working from home. That’s because at home we get to be ourselves, we feel less pressure, and we don’t have to give deal with inappropriate behaviour from work colleagues, for example. And this is why starting a home-based business is the best choice for those who are looking for a way to increase their monthly revenues.

What sort of business can you run from the comfort of your own home? Let’s take a closer look at some of the most popular ones:
1. Online/offline tutoring
Starting an online tutoring service is one of the top home-based activities for anyone who is specialized in a certain field. You can teach foreign languages, maths, English, physics, IT, or anything else you can think of. As long as you have a few students to begin with, you’re on the right track. You can either provide online tutoring services via Skype, instant messaging or email, or you can meet the students face to face. There are plenty of websites created especially for this purpose, but you can also build your own website or advertise your services on various related forums and websites.
2. Coaching
You can make a living from teaching and mentoring others. If you think you have the required skills, you can attend additional classes or trainings and get a degree. Just imagine how rewarding it would be to help others identify their real objectives and achieve success. You need to be a great listener, to know which questions to ask, to be empathetic and honest.
3. Blogging/Freelance writing
If your writing skills are above average and you love to put your thoughts on paper, then it’s time to actually make a profit by following your passions. You can develop a niche blog and attract followers, or you can simply start by writing as a freelancer for other online publications or blogs. There are many blogging communities where you can get inspired, meet other bloggers and online writers, find out the latest trends in the industry, and find potential jobs.
4. Fitness, aerobics, yoga, or pilates tutorials and webinars
If you love working out and keeping in shape, you can start a side business by providing fitness tutorials or organizing aerobics, yoga or pilates sessions. You can become a personal fitness trainer and help others achieve their weight-loss goals. You’ll need to obtain a proper degree and get in touch with your local gyms.
5. Sell professional photos
If you’re passionate about photography, you can turn your hobby into a profitable business. It’s better to determine a certain niche to focus on: wedding photos, landscapes, architecture, family portraits, or fashion photography. The secret to success is to create a solid portfolio and build a strong customer base.
