What appeals to you?

  • work part time
  • start or expand a home business
  • take on a franchise
  • travel (short trips or an extended trip)

What businesses can you take on the road with you?

  • If you want to travel you have to think laterally, whether it’s for shorter trips or an extended trip.
  • Do you have a mailing address at least part of the time or internet access?
  • Can you find work as you travel in the local area if you are staying awhile?

Would These Activities Suit You?

  • writing (author or freelance writing)
  • editing
  • bookkeeping/accounting
  • dog grooming
  • fruit picking
  • internet based businesses
  • beauty treatments
  • house sitting
  • gardening
  • relieving at a bed and breakfast or motel
  • art and crafts
