6 Part Time Business Ideas

Uber Driver

Living in an area with a lot of bars, restaurants and nighttime activities can be beneficial to someone looking to make a few extra bucks. If you have a valid driver’s license, proof of registration and car insurance, your car may be Uber-eligible. For those looking to spend some of their extra time driving others around, and make extra money while doing it, this should be something you consider. After you sign up, there is an online screening which will review your driving record and criminal history. You also need an eligible 4-door vehicle.

Yoga teacher

If you’re a yoga aficionado, you can turn your passion and skill into a part-time business by becoming an instructor. If you’re willing to put in the time and effort to become a certified yoga teacher, you can teach classes at different gyms and health clubs. You can even run a mobile yoga business by offering to teach classes at local schools, businesses and other organizations. And if you eventually decide you want to start a full-time business and open a yoga studio, you’ll have the certification and experience to do so.

Tutoring service

Whether you’re an academic or you have a special skill (like computer expertise or fluency in another language), it might be time to get into the tutoring business. First, figure out your target audience of students — for example, are you looking to help high school students with math, or teach computer skills to adults? Once you know whom you’re looking to reach, start advertising your services. If your students are happy with the results, ask them to refer friends or other organizations that can use your help, and build up a clientele from there.

Software Trainer

If you’re proficient in a highly specialized software, you can get paid to pass your knowledge on to amateurs and professionals looking to expand their skill sets. Technical manuals are available for programs like QuickBooks and Final Cut Pro, but these are often expensive and difficult for the average user to get through. Schedule small group workshops or private sessions, and charge by the hour for a full tutorial of the program. Patience and a great personality are critical.

Handyman

Do they call you Mr. or Ms. Fix-It? Starting a part-time handyman (or handywoman) business is a great way to work with your hands, help people in your community and make some extra cash. A new handyman can put up fliers, advertise in local publications, and recruit friends and family for an online social media blitz. Then, you can get to work repairing everything from leaky pipes to faulty electrical wiring — just be sure you read up on the proper techniques and procedures, and check with your local government to make sure you have the necessary permits for any projects you might take on.

Entertainment Service

While the term “disc jockey” might be a little outdated in the age of streaming music, there’s no question that event entertainment is still in high demand. With your music collection, mixing software and your laptop, you can get people out on the dance floor at weddings and birthday parties, or simply provide background music at more casual events. DJ equipment is a big investment, but plenty of companies offer daily rentals of speakers, subwoofers and other accessories that you can use until you can save up enough to buy your own.
