Seasonal Jobs – how to earn money all year!

At OddJobCity the team’s focus is to inspire and inform. One way to do that is by responding to questions. As the summer weather cools down, members have asked how to handle the challenges of seasonal business and for ideas on making money during the slower months. We hope the information included inspires and informs!

If you are a small business owner or thinking of starting a small business fall and winter months can be challenging. If you own a landscaping business, for example, what do you do when there aren’t any lawns to mow or flowers to tend to? And even if your business is not that seasonally focused, the fall and winter months can be slow. Here are a few ideas to expand your existing business or begin something new even in the slower months!

Do you want to start your own business, but can’t decide what type? Do you want a change, but not sure where to start? You’re not alone! In response to this dilemma shared by so many, I have developed the ‘idea prompt’.

What is that you ask? An idea prompt is the starting point for a business idea with lots of details on how to… get started right away, advertise, find customers, and what experience and knowledge is needed with some inspiration tossed in.

My nickname may be ‘idea gal’, but I can’t turn all of these ideas into businesses on my own…so I’m sharing them with you!

If you have questions or want to brainstorm an idea email me at dana@oddjobcity.com .

Prompt – Professional Garage Sale Seller!

Details – Purchase and sell bargain items. Through attending auctions, sales, consignment or thrift stores items are purchased to resell. Most people have unwanted items in their home right now that could easily kick off the selling process and grow as quickly or slowly as you wish! Typically, deals can be found, a bit of cleanup or repair and the item can be sold to make a profit. People do this on ebay and amazon everyday. I have a neighbor who has a ‘yard/garage’ sale almost every weekend in the spring, summer and fall with items she buys at a bargain price and then turns around and sells them for a profit. She and her husband visits discount shops and auctions within a few hours of their home in the winter and early spring as often as she can to buy up items. The couple cleans the items or repairs if needed, and sometimes find a unique new use; she has made old pans into pretty planting pots, etc. This business is not only a way to make extra income, but also a fun way to enjoy the hunt of a good deal and the weekend travels. There is no listing fee and she can negotiate a price at any given moment in person.

Starting a business – The first steps

The “how to begin?” checklist –

OddJobCity members have asked how to start a business; the first steps. Many of you want to start working for yourself or turn a hobby into a profitable business. This checklist is ‘the beginning’; before purchasing business cards, advertising or reaching out to customers. A business can be a full time venture or something to build part-time while working another job; the same amount of research needs to be done for either.

A business idea is the very step. If you have an idea you can use this list to help develop it. If you aren’t sure what type of business you want to start then read the ‘business idea prompts’ on the OJC Blog for ideas on starting a business today! Also, read over the mini business plan post to help you organize the information below. I suggest keeping a notebook or electronic file with all of your questions and answers in one place.
