Ready to start your business? Over the last 10 years, I have tried all 10 of these ideas. Which one are you going to start with? I highly recommend just picking one to start with and you can always add more revenue streams later on!
1: Live Workshop (Virtual or In-Person)
If you like to teach and help others, creating workshops could be perfect for you. This could be a 90-minute workshop, a half-day, or 1-2 days in person or virtual.
First step: “I’m thinking about….Are you interested?”
2: Sponsored Posts (Website or Social media)
If you like to share products you love with your friends and family, why not get paid to share great products you love!
This could be getting paid by brands to tell your audience about their products. This is best for people with large audiences.
First step: Create your media kit.

These could be valuable checklists or templates.
First step: Identify what other people ask you for help with and how you can turn that into a system or guide.
5: Online Course
If you love to teach but don’t want to leave your house, online courses might be for you.
This could be teaching a topic live or pre-recording content.
First step: Identify the before and after results your course provides. It’s not just a bunch of information.
6: Affiliate Marketing
If you love to test and share products you use.
This could be getting a portion of every sale your audience makes. Ex: Amazon affiliates
First step: Make a list of products you have used and LOVE. It’s not salesy when you love the products. Easy to sell.
7. Coaching (Individual, Group or Online)
If you love to help others and answer questions, coaching might be for you.
This could be on zoom, the phone, in-person, or a tool like slack.
First step: Start talking to your ideal clients by holding free sessions to uncover their challenges and goals.
8. Physical Products
If you love to design new things and want to sell something your clients can feel and touch and share on social media, physical products might be for you.
This could be shipping a product or using a third party to ship.
First step: Explore third party options like Printful, Printify, and Vervante
9. Membership Site
If you want to use your knowledge and expertise to help others make progress and transform their lives, then starting a membership site may be perfect for you.
This could be helping people solve a specific problem, master a skill, or just make things more convenient for them.
First step: Launch your membership to founding members for a special offer.
Note: I’m honored to be included in Stu McLaren’s membership site case studies in his free workshop starting on April 21st! So excited to share more about my story over the last few years and how Stu helped my husband and I redesign a business we LOVE! The workshop is free. However, it only happens ONCE a year. So if you’ve ever thought about creating a membership site, go sign-up HERE.
10. Online Challenge
If you love can help others get a result quickly, challenges might be for you.
This could be in a Facebook group or host your videos on vimeo. You could go live on zoom to deliver your challenge and provide a workbook.
