1. Photo Journalism :
Good at capturing, editing and telling a story through images? This just might be one of the perfect weekend business ideas for you! With multiple online websites, YouTube channels, weekly/ monthly publications and various other forms of audiovisual of news platforms out there, there is a vast requirement of good material which people are ready to pay big bucks for. The initial cost of setting up is that of your photography equipment and social media promotion.
2. Tour Guide :
All the useless roaming around (according to your parents) just saved your day! Knowing your city in and out- its history, culture, food etc and having good interpersonal and communication skills is all you need to know to be an amateur tour guide. You can always do courses in tourism or get certified by the Department of Tourism to take it up professionally.
3. Pet Boarding :
This one is for the animal lovers out there, wanderlust doing us good! A lot of people travel these days, from weekend trips to long vacations and the pet parents need to leave their little ones somewhere they’ll be looked after. All you need is the basic infrastructure like separate cages with a sleeping area, open play area, grooming facilities, dog handler etc. It is necessary to have previous experience with animals such as veterinary technician, pet sitter, dog walker, or animal shelter volunteer.
4. Sports Coach :
Having playing experience and certifications, one can take up weekend classes in and around their area of residence for kids and adults alike. Hobby classes generally don’t require professional infrastructure but basic safety measures must be taken.
5. Travel Agency :
The most cost-effective measure to open up a home-based travel agency is by tying up with a host agency, you will receive the benefits of getting official documents and permissions faster, convenience (they perform all the ‘back-end functions’), and help you earn higher commissions and keep your costs low.
6. Party Planning :
Decorations, catering, invites aren’t all that easy. The knack to get things done and having a great network of the right people really helps if you’re planning to be a party planner. This is one of the perfect weekend business ideas for the people who like being involved hands on!
