Let’s understand why working professionals look out for business ideas?

  • Working professionals like yourself have a lot of disposable income in 2022. Especially in a post-pandemic world.
  • In pandemic years, we ended up saving a lot of money. If it was not for pandemic then we would have spent this money recklessly.
  • We all are guilty of extravagantly spending money on lifestyle, commute, and leisure entertainment experiences. Thanks to pandemic, we have savings.

Now, what do we do with all this extra money? Waste it on entertainment and leisure? 

No way! 

We should start a business. HeLL YeahhhhHHH!!!!

And to start a business, we need ideas. Thus, I have curated this list of business ideas for working professionals. Any working professional can start one or more of these 27+ business ideas shared in this blog. But still, I have added suggestions next to each of the business ideas for working professionals. You’ll find who would best suit to pursue a business idea next to the opportunity itself.

For example, the first five business ideas are better suited for healthcare professionals.

1. Healthcare review aggregator website/app business ideas for working professionals

healthcare review app business ideas for working professionals in healthcare sector

healthcare review app

Among the best business ideas for working professionals in the healthcare industry.

  • We all need healthcare services. From a small dental cleaning to highly complex eye operations and cancer treatment – the needs for healthcare requirements may vary.
  • And usually, we Indians try not to take risks in terms of investment, healthcare, and law. And this opens up a suite of opportunities for you as an entrepreneur. 
  • People want safety, and so they try to verify the organizations and their executives before they kind of deal with them.
  • You can start a review site where people can give feedback about their experience with a particular healthcare executive and hospital. 

Business idea for working professionals in the healthcare industry

This falls under the “reviews aggregator website and app” business idea.

Bonus aggregator business ideas for working professionals in India:

  • Start a lawyer aggregator platform with reviews features.
  • Start an investment consultant review aggregator website. On this platform allow people to rate a investment professionals. Add straightforward criteria like how much profits the investment guy has helped them earn.

The Finance related news channels right now suck at this. Truly.

2. Health diagnosis & consultancy business ideas for working professionals 

Health diagnostic & consultancy business ideas for working professionals

Health diagnostic & consultancy

Another addition to top business ideas for working professionals in the healthcare sector, esp doctors.

Are you an experienced physician, ENT specialist, gynecologist, or any niche healthcare working professional?

Business idea for working doctors

  • You can start your own consultancy business. 
  • Normally, to be honest, we don’t trust doctors either.
  • Nod your head if you agree, we do feel doctors earn a little extra to prescribe treatments and medicines that were not really necessary. 

I’m sure you would have been asked to scan your organs when it wasn’t really necessary. But we can’t take risks with our health and doctors know this. 

So, they never miss to take the benefit of this fear and doubt.

How your business can be different if you start this as a working professional?

  • Your consultancy can charge on hourly basis.
  • Allow patients to come and discuss about the treatment they need to take.
  • After taking the right consultancy, they can visit any doctor.
  • Basically, your consultancy would make patients aware of the standard treatments for the problems they are facing.
  • This would ensure that no doctor can fraud him.
  • This could be a highly impactful, and one of the best profitable business ideas for working professionals in the healthcare industry, especially experienced senior doctors, and healthcare executives.

3. In-house senior care business ideas for working professionals

senior care business ideas for working professionals

senior care

This business could be started by any working professional in The United States, United Kingdom, or India.

  • The demand for caregivers is rising every day. In fact, in my locality – I see a team of 2 nurses visit an old lady on a daily basis for 3-4 hours. People in India today have more jobs than ever. 
  • The population is moving from villages to cities, and we have almost no time for our family. It’s a shame, but we are helpless. It’s a rat race all around and we can’t do anything but participate in it. Else, we might fall under an economically deprived section of the society.
  • And so, care giving to elderly and disabled members could be one of those business ideas for working professionals which allow you to be more than what you are by giving back to the society while making money.

And so, you do not have many barriers to start your own online pharmacy business in India1Mg, NetMeds are good examples of pharmacy startups in India. 

To start profitably, I would suggest to only serve in tier 2 cities first. Then move to metro cities. And lastly, explore the opportunities to launch your business in the villages of India.

How working professionals should approach this business idea?

  • Though, this business too can be started by anyone with small investment. But if you have pharma & medical background, it will be really helpful. Your pharma experience can be crucial in managing the operations, license requirements, and other business critical ops.
  • It’s a good and profitable business idea to start in India. Though this idea is part of the list of business ideas for working professionals, but is it really? I personally feel, this is a full time opportunity and needs heavy focus and investment of money and energy. But yeah, you can kindle with this on the side, before you go in all guns ablazed.

6. Automobile advisor business ideas for working people

Automobile advisor business ideas for working professionals

Automobile advisor

  • With increasing competition the number of automobile brands that we have in India has shot up in the last five years. It’s way too confusing to make a smart choice while purchasing a vehicle. This opens up a business opportunity for working professionals.

7. Construction consultancy business ideas for working professionals

Construction consultancy business ideas for working professionals in the real estate sector

construction consultancy

  • Similar to other consultancy businesses, be it vehicle or health, this one also thrives because not everyone is a master in every trade.
  • What? People want to buy new properties and they have no clue about which property is good and which one is a bad investment. And that’s where you can enter as an independent real-estate consultant.

What services you need to provide in the construction consultancy business if you start as a working professional?

Yes, this is similar to a professional property dealers business. But you do not need to pursue this at scale in the beginning. You can start small.

  • Your expertise and field knowledge would assist clients in identifying and closing good property deals. This doesn’t stop right here. The business goes on.
  • If it’s a property for construction you can help them find nice architects and construction companies too. You can be a 360 degree marketplace.

8. Ceramic tile retailing business ideas for working ladies

Ceramic tile retailing business ideas for working professionals

Ceramic tile store

My family had the opportunity to venture into this business back in 2005. But we didn’t. Looking back, I could definitely say that it was not a good decision, not at all. 

I know someone in my network who booked profits by selling tiles. And then, he ventured into agri products and re-invested the money back into construction works and real-estate. Today, he owns around 7 buildings across different Indian cities. 

It’s been years since I spoke to him. But I know they are still booking good profits from retailing tiles.

Can working professionals pursue this business?

Start a tile retailing business. I know you are wondering how to run this business as a part-time working professional? 

You can’t. That’s right. 

  • But you can hire people who can sit at the counter of your shop while you work at your regular office.
  • These retail counter talents would charge a salary of around 10-12k per month.
  • And you can also hire a staff who would work for 8k a month.
  • This business is not recommended for those working professionals who have a zero tolerance policy at their workplace for personal calls during working hours.
