Really want to chase home based business ideas?

I’m going to share some highly profitable home based business ideas and opportunities for entrepreneurs in India. But starting a home based business often means staying indoors all the time. I don’t think anyone would want to stay home all the time. People will eventually get bored if they stay indoors 24×7. In-fact, some homes are not really home. They are toxic interior places. People and family make a place worth living or worth leaving. Many of us do want to leave our homes at least a few times a day. Don’t we? But there are people who feel happier when they are in the comfort of their home, surrounded by their loving family.

Outdoors could be refreshing!

If you are that person who stays indoors all the time, I envy you. Because I want to get in your mindset. I want to stay home too. I will try my best. But I fail every time. I need to step out of my house to feel the air, feel the crowd, feel the buzz around, it energises me, and yeah, it does harm my lungs too – the AQI (air quality index) around Indian marketplaces is above 200 it seems. And it makes me postpone things of priority. Because indoors often suffocates me, even when I stay alone, more suffocating when people are around.

Why should you try home based business ideas in 2022 in India?

  • But leaving home shouldn’t mean we engage ourselves in boring jobs outside our homes.
  • To put it in other words – it doesn’t matter where you are, you don’t want to be a robot. You don’t want to be a robot who shows up at work every day (mostly unwillingly), someone who always reports to people of their presence or absence. 
  • You don’t have to be a robot who takes shit from friends and family.
  • Step up for yourself, build your personality and financial power. And to help you with the later one, I’m sharing a list of home based small business ideas for you.

Some homes are really toxic but there are some really good families out there too. If you’re part of such a family, you don’t want to be someone who feels scared to spend time with your family, someone who has to ask for permission to kindle with the family during weekdays.

You don’t want to work when you’re not in the mood to work.

Home based business ideas are your way to financial freedom

  • You want to get out of this pathetic robotic machine life. It’s time to break free from the nonsense rat race.
  • Now, it’s time that you ruffle your hustle wings, flutter towards the sky, and then spread your wings to enjoy the flight. 
  • To help you take control of your finances and your life, I’m sharing with you a list of profitable home based small business ideas. Hope you find some home business ideas interesting and worth pursuing.

Road to entrepreneurship seems all glittery; but the reality is that it’s a game of responsibility. 

You are answerable to your customers. And we can’t escape this, as we are civilised beings. Responsible, not wild animals. We live by an unofficial mantra – Live & let others live. And so, we have HAVE to be answerable. Or else, there is a MONK life – free from all life chains.

Content services home based business ideas

Content services

I was thrilled to know about the empire that Google, Facebook, and now Amazon has built on top of advertising. 

If you see technically, they have transformed how content is discovered, how people interact, and how people buy new stuff. But the ground reality is that these companies have built their empire on top of content. 

We consume content in terms of social post, search engine results, and product descriptions and reviews. Yes, we won’t be wrong to say that content drives their business.

While Google and Facebook have directly monetised with the help of Ads, Amazon is using multiple channels to monetize the platform, and they have recently started reaping the benefits of product ads too. 

You may also think of some content focused home based business ideas like review aggregator business, or an affiliate business, or a content agency, or content creation platform, a video streaming application, or a business centered around content marketing like copywriting & SEO, etcetera.

The home based business ideas worth considering here are-

  • Freelance content writing
  • Social media content agency
  • Ad writing agency
  • Video script writing agency
  • Podcast interview business
  • Youtube vlogging
  • Personal blogging/micr-blogging on social media
