The days of working at a company for 40 hours and retiring with a pension are over. Job security is a thing of the past. If a guy wants security today; he has to create it himself.
We do however, live in an incredible time where guys can create their own opportunities for success. No longer do we have to depend on the old school gatekeepers to do the things we want to do financially. Here are seven Profitable Business Ideas For Men in 2018.
1. Drive for Uber or Lyft
This is a great option if you need a side gig that has flexible hours as you could easily do this on the nights and weekends along with a full-time job.
2. Promote Ads on Your Car
If your daily commute is a complete drag, turn it into a money-making operation. Companies like Free Car Media will pay you for displaying ads on your car. If you do get hired, you could earn as much as $400-$500 per month.
3. Offer car maintenance or mechanic services
Mechanic services can be unbearably expensive. If you have a gift for car maintenance or repair, consider starting a car maintenance repair business that goes to the customer’s home garage.
Without the overhead of having your own car repair garage, it is likely that your profit will be higher and the customer will appreciate the personalized service.
4. Provide yard work services
You can do anything from mowing the lawn, to shoveling, to raking to minor landscaping. One look around your neighborhood will likely show you that there are many clients who’d love to pay someone to help them with the lawn.
5. Become a photographer
If you own a decent camera and like photography, consider offering your photography skills for weddings, families, high school graduations and proms. A good picture is worth a thousand words, and worth a lot of money as well.
6. Design your own t-shirts
If you are creative and like to design things, then this may be a great fit for you. Check out a site called CafePress which will publish t-shirt designs that you create, and then give you a percentage of the profits when your design is purchased by a customer.
7. Perform as a musician
There are many opportunities to get paid as a musician. Weddings, summer festivals, and other events will pay for good money for musical skills. Street musicians – where allowed – can also earn some decent cash if they provide entertaining tunes for passers-by.
While not everyone will make millions as a musician, it can be a decent way to make money on the side.
Honestly, there are opportunities all around us and you can take a passion, and turn it into a business that generates real income. If you’re willing to hustle, and wake up everyday, and do what it takes, you can create work that you love. The alternative is living life of misery heading into a job you hate everyday.
Many men have come to the end of their life full of regret because they spent years letting a job they hate stress the life out of them. If you’re going to be successful, you have to wake up to this, and determine in your mind that you will do something about.
