I am from Cape Town South Africa, unfortunately I had to give up my extremely stressful job up of 18 years due to ill health (caused by stress), but due to the current economic situation in SA, I am finding it extremely difficult finding work despite my experience and also my age is counting against me (58 years).
Ever since the idea of online auctions came into existence, the online selling market has been on the rise. Many are interested, but don’t know how to get started. There are still all kinds of ways to make money by selling online, whether you’re selling what you already have or buying and selling like a store. Before we get started, here are a few general tips when selling anything online:
If you don’t mind parading yourself around in public places as a side business idea, and enjoy a little attention, then as a human billboard can pay a surprising amount of dividends. Renting out your beard, for example can earn you as much as $5 a day while having a brand logo tattooed on your shaven head for five years could pay as much as $7,000—though this type of earning opportunity is admittedly rare. This business idea is definitely not for the faint of heart, and is a little extreme for me, but nonetheless it’s been done as a side hustle for many people. You can start by holding a placard or wearing a sandwich board. If you think this is a good business idea for yourself, you can go all the way and turn it into a full on small business idea.
The only word in the English language with three consecutive pairs of letters is also a great idea for a home-based business. You probably already have the equipment and software you need to start a bookkeeping business, and plenty of business owners would love to get the tedious task of keeping records off their hands.
The disadvantage of a franchise is that the nature of the operations may be highly restrictive. A franchisee may be subject to contractual obligations, such as items that can or cannot be offered, or where supplies may be purchased.
At that point, it is up to you whether you want to actually answer the survey questions or not. If you do decide to participate, you answer a few dozen questions about the product/service/topic of the survey.

Pet sitting usually involves going to someone else’s house to take care of furry loved ones. Pet sitting could even involve living in someone’s house while the client is away. You have to think about the types of services you’ll provide and the types of animals you’ll take care of, but generally pet sitting is a low-cost, high-pleasure business idea.
SandFree was developed because customers demanded it. They refused to get their floors sanded until they moved out of their house due to the dust, the odor, and the inconvenience. Although customers would pay the same amount as sanding to refinish their floors with no dust, the costs to do SandFree are so low, most franchisees price the work at 1/2 the cost of sanding. That still leaves a huge gross margin. In addition to a huge gross margin, SandFree provides a Call Center for inbound inquiries. Not only are your customers handled by experienced sales people, you don’t have to have an office, administrative help, rent, heat, desks, or other overhead. You share a database with the Call Center enabling them to send out proposals immediately with copies to you. Then, you’ll call your customer, and schedule the work. Aside from advertising, and small expenses, most of the gross profit goes to you. For $35,000 you get a 500,000 person territory, all of your equipment, a computer with software, uniforms, marketing media, an inventory, uniforms, training, a hotel room for training, and we paint/wrap/letter your van to make it a moving billboard. SandFree can recolor wood. This is extremely important because if you aren’t addressing the color issues in a floor, you will not have a satisfied customer. We make our ColorMagiQ which is a topical stain. Common stains are penetrating – they need to be applied to raw wood to change the color of the floor. ColorMagiQ is a topical stain which can be colored infinitely- you aren’t limited to 15 standard colors. You can do – green, red, blue, orange – whatever. SandFree is not only for wood. We sent men to St. Louis to refinish the concrete at the Pulitzer Foundation of Art. SandFree is not only for interior jobs. We recolored and refinished the black granite on the exterior of a Ritz-Carlton. SandFree is unique in the way that it has solved so many problems. One restaurant had wide steps and people were slipping. We developed a way to add traction to the urethane finish so that the tripping was eliminated. SandFree is great for commercial work in addition to residential work. Residential work is the bulk of the footage, but the commercial work is the bulk of the profit. Museums, restaurants, gyms, sports facilities, racquetball courts, stages, auditoriums are all appreciative commercial customers because we resolved their problems. Let’s face it – how are you going to sand an auditorium with 5,000 seats? SandFree is the perfect solution for that. And, these commercial accounts are repeat customers. Every Tuesday night at 8:30 EDT, there is a SandFree webinar. You should come to one to completely understand the opportunity.
