Three Types of Businesses to Start Today


Not everyone has entrepreneurial blood running through their veins, or even considers the idea of starting their own business, whether it be for profit, to introduce a new idea, or even just for fun. Finding different types of businesses to start today can be difficult, but rewarding

Don’t get me wrong, starting your own business can be an extremely daunting task, and at times would make you question if it was at all worth it. But it can also be an incredibly fun, challenging, and exciting endeavor. Not to mention the financial benefits if it were to take flight. 

Here are some top types of businesses to start, that are rapidly growing in today’s world.

Computer Design

Now I know what many of you are thinking — I don’t know the first thing about computer design, much less how to solder a motherboard or write an advanced piece of code!

The best part about this, is that you don’t need to! A few days of solid research will get you a basic enough understanding of what you’re getting yourself into. Computer design can be anything from building computers and hard drives, to writing intense algorithms or applications, to creating a simple yet elegant web page. The list goes on and on, to more complex business models, or to simpler ones.

Now that you’re hooked on becoming a computer manufacturer, it’s worth noting that according to the U.S. Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics, this area received an 18% growth in employment in 2018, and expects the trend to continue at 15% through 2022! 

Healthy Food Alternatives

Just in case computer design doesn’t tickle your fancy, healthy food alternatives are also a very popular and growing sector in today’s world. And it can be as simple as sharing a secret family recipe! 

Everyone has to eat, but more and more frequently we’re buying and eating foods that are harming our bodies, or preventing us from progressing. Most homemade foods are healthier than store bought or frozen alternatives, partly due to freshness, but also due to thought put towards it. When you make something at home it takes time, time that you don’t want to waste making something that either doesn’t taste good, or that doesn’t strengthen your body. 

An easy way to step into the world of food, is to advertise or sell a homemade recipe that you enjoy. It’s also fairly risk free, so long as people enjoy it and your ego is well-protected. A big bonus if your recipe is a healthy alternative to a popular junk food!

Pet Care

Let’s face it. Not everyone wants to commit much  when it comes to starting a business. And although that’s a fundamental part of creating a successful one, we can keep it to a minimum. Not only does pet care require a small amount of commitment to start, it has a large market.

Unless you’re allergic to animals or have had a traumatic experience, chances are you love them. This makes a business model surrounding yourself with cute animals not only attractive, but a lot more feasible. Starting a pet care business can be as simple as taking care of a neighbors pet dog while they go away for a weekend. But can quickly grow into taking care of all of your neighborhoods animals when their respective owners leave on vacation or work trips. And it just goes up and up from there.
I don’t suppose it’s worth noting that according to the APPA, a whopping 67% of U.S. households have a pet. But it’s definitely some food for thought.

And there you have it, three types of businesses to start today. Easy enough right? It can be scary, but sometimes once you take the jump, you’ll find it’s not as scary as you once thought. Give it a try, and you might find that the grass can be greener on the other side!
