WB Busi­nesses you can do at home

Daily Trust - - BUSINESS - By Vic­to­ria Onehi & Lat­i­fat Opoola

Tu­tor­ing each­ing can be a won­der­ful home based busi­ness op­por­tu­nity es­pe­cially for those peo­ple who have an ex­ten­sive knowl­edge of sub­jects like Math­e­mat­ics and English lan­guage.

TMost par­ents are on a look out for teach­ers for their wards at home. So, take ad­van­tage of this and earn some ex­tra money. You can place a no­tice like “Want a lesson teacher? Then call ...” at strate­gic lo­ca­tions near you. KNIT­TING Do you love knit­ting as a hobby, then turn your love for knit­ting into a prof­itable busi­ness. You may be afraid you will never make profit but when your work is good; your prod­ucts will get you cus­tomers.

The key to mak­ing profit in knit­ting is to con­cen­trate on smaller knit­ted goods like mak­ing cups for chil­dren while build­ing a name for your­self. When you get ma­chines for knit­ting, then you can grow to mak­ing a set of cardi­gans, trousers, socks and caps for chil­dren. Pack­age it well and drop at baby stores or tell would-be-moth­ers about what you do. Sell at a rel­a­tively lower price than it is sold in the stores and they will be will­ing to buy from you. Once you come up with a won­der­ful knit­ting pat­tern or de­sign and knit it well, you can lease with ei­ther pri­mary or sec­ondary schools who can buy in bulk from you.

Soap mak­ing

There is a grow­ing mar­ket in soap mak­ing. Mak­ing soap from scratch is easy and you can do it from the comfort of your home. All you need is to take few days train­ing from peo­ple who have been in the busi­ness, get lit­tle cap­i­tal and then you are good to go.

By adding spe­cial herbs, fra­grances and colours, you can make yours unique and make spe­cial soaps right in your own kitchen.

How­ever, pack­ag­ing is key for you to be suc­cess­ful in this busi­ness.
