20 Cheap Businesses You Can Start in Your Spare Time
If you’re thinking of starting up your own business, but don’t want to make a huge investment, you’re in luck. We’ve compiled a list of 20 cheap startup business ideas that won’t break the bank, and you can work on in your spare time.
1. Sales Consultant
Avon, Mary Kay, Pampered Chef, and Tupperware all enlist the help of local sales representatives to get the word out to shoppers about their products. If you’re comfortable talking to people about a product, this business idea could be for you. To start, Avon costs just $5 to register, Pampered Chef is $80; both Tupperware and Mary Kay cost $100 to start with each company.
Beverly Kemner of Pottstown, Pa. sees being an Avon representative as a way to earn money to supplement her income and has been running her part-time business for about four years. To get started, she paid $5 to register with Avon.
“I could do it out of my own home on my own time,” she says. “They give you everything you need to start the first campaign. I think it’s perfect for this economy.”
Kemner says the harder you work at building your customer base, the more sales you make, and that flexibility appealed to Kemner, who suffers from a chronic illness. “You do the best when you can put the time in to it,” she says. “You need to give it a little bit of time, but it’s not as time-demanding as some other (businesses).”
2. Lawn care
This is a seasonal job that can be lucrative if marketed to time-crunched homeowners who have better things to do on their days off than mow their lawns. It is a good job for someone who likes to be outdoors, and can be started inexpensively with fliers, business cards and a lawnmower. Also, it’s a business that you can easily scale into a bigger operation.
3. Homemade gourmet foods
A love of cooking turned into a full-time business for Nancy Neal of Melbourne, Fla. She makes jams, jellies and spreads right in her home kitchen, now has about 50 products including soup mixes at her Nancy’s Pantry Corner in a variety of markets.
If you’re just getting started, the cost is cooking supplies, packaging, and basic marketing materials, and depending on where you’re going to sell your goods, either the cost to set up a website or rent a retail store.
Babysitting isn’t a teenager’s job anymore. If you like children, then this could be a side business for you. Network in your community and be prepared to be available for work at night and on the weekends.
5. Cleaning services
Where there are people, there will be a need to clean. Whether you focus on cleaning houses or go after business from companies, this cheap startup business idea will cost as much as supplies and the fliers needed to get your name out in the community. The hours for the cleaning service could dovetail nicely with a standard Monday through Friday job—businesses usually want their buildings cleaned at night and on weekends.
If you like to cook and can plan out a meal from beginning to end, this could be a side business for you. Offer party catering as well as business lunches as a way to keep business opportunities available. Build a customer base by creating relationships in your community and ask for client testimonials as a way to show potential new customers what you have done at past events. Costs would include making fliers and possibly having samples of your cooking available for tasting by future clients.
If you like helping people, you may like running errands for people in your community. Market to those in your community who don’t have a lot of time for chores or may be housebound.
If you can fix a rain gutter, do simple electrical repairs or know how to spackel, turn those home-improvement skills into a side business. Make sure to check with your state about any possible permits or licenses needed to work.
9. Virtual assistant
If you like organizing things, weeding through e-mails, posting to social media and keeping people on a schedule, market those skills to small-business owners who are too busy growing their own businesses to take care of those things themselves. The costs of starting this business could include a computer and stable Internet connection to maintain contact with your clients.
Maybe you’ve changed careers during your working life. Offer your skills to that former industry as a paid consultant. Since you worked in the industry, you already have contacts you could market to as being available for hire.
11. Snow removal
This seasonal business can be lucrative, but is dependent upon the weather. When looking for potential customers, think houses as well as small businesses. The costs for starting this business can be as little as the price of fliers, business cards and a shovel—or higher with more equipment.
12. Online content production
If you have a knack for grammar and love to write, content production for websites could be a cheap business startup for you. Cost to kick off this business includes a computer and an Internet connection. Market your skills on sites including elance.com, where potential employers look for contract workers.
13. Pet groomer
With the American Pet Products Association predicting Americans spent $4.11 billion in 2012 on their pets for grooming and boarding, it just goes to show people are willing to spend on their furry friends.
You must like animals to start this business. Cost to get into this business includes permits, insurance and equipment.
14. Pet sitting and walking
Combine a love for animals and a love of the outdoors. Many people leave their pets at home alone most of the day while they are at work, but are willing to pay people to check on their pets and walk them during the day. Cost to start this business would be marketing materials and a reliable car to get from client to client.
15. Delivery service
Do you like going to different locations through the day? A courier business may be a good fit for you. Market your services to businesses.
If you have good penmanship, a business addressing envelopes—like wedding invitations—could be a nostalgic business startup idea. You’ll need samples, as well as a business cards.
If you excel at a certain subject, you could use that skill as a private tutor for students of all ages. Adult learners also need help sometimes with their school subjects. Cost to get started would be marketing materials.
18. Home day care
Parents look for alternatives to big day care centers where their children are grouped with many other children. Fill that need by offering home day care. Check with your state on regulations for these start-up businesses—licensing may be required depending on the number of children you hope to have at your home.
Speak another language? That valuable skill can be turned in to a business by offering your services to businesses and government offices.
20. Elder caregiver
With a growing older population, this service-based business is filling an important need.
Market to senior citizens who may not want to live in assisted-living communities, but could still benefit from help with minor day-to-day activities including light house work. Cost includes marketing materials and a reliable car.

#bond market news
What Are the Best International Bond Markets?
What Are the Best International Bond Markets?
With low interest rates in the U.S. and outright negative rates in some overseas markets, the bond market probably isn’t the first thing to come to mind when investors are looking for yield.
But experts are pointing to some niches of the international bond arena that are yielding well above what can be had domestically, albeit with more risk.
Both high-quality and lower-quality bonds have been performing well in terms of price. High-quality developed market bonds have rallied with demand from risk-averse investors, such as those worried about Britain voting to leave the European Union .
But of course as bond prices rise, their yields decline. So, needing to make money, investors have also been turning to lower-quality emerging market bonds. That also drives their price up, but these bonds simply yield more because they are riskier.
It can be tempting to stay within the U.S. in terms of bonds, says Richard Lawrence, senior vice president of portfolio management at Brandywine Global Investment Management, which is a subadvisor for the Legg Mason BW Global Opportunities Bond Fund (ticker: GOBIX ). But that would be eschewing higher yields in emerging markets and some developed world bonds.
“You have to look beyond the headlines,” he says.
Emerging markets can be a good place to look for yield, but that’s because they are associated with certain risks, says Eric Stein, co-director of global income at Eaton Vance Management, which has the Global Macro Absolute Return Fund (EIGMX ), the Emerging Markets Local Income Fund (EEIAX ) and the Emerging Markets Debt Opportunities Fund (EIDOX ). The three main risks for foreign bonds are currency, interest rates and default, he says.
International bonds also move in step with the Federal Reserve and U.S. Treasurys. If the Fed raises rates, that would cause bond yields elsewhere to rise, meaning their value would fall in the short term. This would only create a headwind for international bonds if the Fed raises rates more than expected and Treasurys sell off, Stein says.
If U.S. rates rise more quickly than expected, this could strengthen the U.S. dollar and cause some emerging market currencies to weaken.
Demand from China is also a risk as many emerging market countries are commodities producers and China is a large consumer, he says. A sell off in the Chinese currency can also send shockwaves through global risk markets, he says.
Oil prices are also a risk, since many emerging market countries are oil exporters, he says.
With the top five global bond issuers – the U.S. France, Germany, the United Kingdom and Japan – all yielding low or negative rates, emerging market countries are “last bastions of yield,” says Meb Faber, a co-founder and chief investment officer of Cambria Investment Management.
Rising interest rates in the U.S. would lead to higher rates elsewhere. So in the short term, that would cause international bond prices to decline and their yield to go up, Faber says.
Whether international bonds will face a strong headwind as the Fed raises rates depends on how the market reacts to the pace of the hikes, Lawrence says.
A strong dollar acts as a headwind for investors in international bonds unless they hedge that currency exposure, he says, but this year, declines in the U.S. dollar have made it more sensible to buy securities denominated in other currencies.
Stein thinks the Fed will raise rates a little more than expected over the next two years, providing a slight headwind to some emerging market currencies.
For those looking for yield, Lawrence points to Brazil, where the 10-year bond is yielding around 12 percent. He also likes Mexico because of its correlation with the slowly improving U.S. economy and its Treasury market but much higher yield. South Africa is also attractive, with its 10-year bonds yielding about 9 percent and a slowly improving fiscal picture.
Both Lawrence and Stein point to Indonesia because of its reform agenda.
They also cite New Zealand as a niche of the developed world economies where investors can get higher yields without taking a lot of credit risk. However, Stein is bearish on the New Zealand dollar.

#business process modeling
Business Process Modeling Notation (BPMN)
UModel BPMN Features:
- Supports BPMN 1.0 and BPMN 2.0
- Automatically update BPMN 1.0 diagrams to BPMN 2.0 notation
- One-click conversion of swimlanes between horizontal and vertical orientations
- Elements can be assigned to diagram layers and selectively viewed or hidden
- Unlimited undo/redo encourages exploring new ideas
- BPMN diagrams integrated with UML modeling for robust coverage of software project requirements
- BPMN diagrams and elements included in automated project documentation
Create Business Process Diagrams to Document Enterprise Activities or Support a Software Development Project
Business Process Modeling Notation is a graphical standard for creating flow chart-like diagrams that are readily understandable by all business stakeholders including business analysts, technical developers, and business managers. The BPMN standard is maintained by the Object Management Group (OMG), the same organization that administers UML.
In today’s complex global marketplace, business processes can be coordinated within a single enterprise or across entire industries. As communication supporting various business activities accelerates, it becomes more and more critical to have a standard modeling system that can be easily read and understood by a variety of users at a broad range of levels within business organizations, yet can be used to represent complex processes involving multiple parties or enterprises.
UModel® 2016 supports both BPMN 1.0 and BPMN 2.0 notation, and even provides a migration path for users who want to update older diagrams with new elements and functionality introduced in the BPMN 2.0 standard. UModel also supports BPMN model exchange with other BPMN tools through the XMI specification first developed for UML models.
BPMN Business Process Diagrams
The elements and rules for business process diagrams (illustrated in the large screen shot above) are very similar to UML activity diagrams, providing a natural transition of the easy to use and highly acclaimed drawing tools of UModel from UML to Business Process Modeling Notation. UModel lets you create free-form diagrams that are useful for capturing the details of an internal process.
BPMN 2.0 added new elements to the original specification to let you refine diagrams that document a wide range of private (internal) and public business activities. New elements in BPMN 2 include event types, task elements, an additional gateway element, several new data elements, and a datastore element to represent a database
BPMN Choreography Diagrams
Choreography diagrams specify the way business participants coordinate their interactions. Choreographies can also be seen as a business contract between participants, where the focus lies on the exchange of information (messages) between the participants.
In the choreography diagram at the right, a customer requests credit from a bank. Each choreography task has two participants and the flow of activities is represented by arrows and gateways. The envelope elements represent messages sent or received.
The UModel Choreography diagram toolbar provides quick access to all BPMN 2.0 choreography elements with drop-down selection of task, event, and gateway variations.
BPMN Collaboration Diagrams
Collaboration Diagrams specify the interactions between two or more processes. A BPMN collaboration generally consists of two or more pools which represent the participants in the collaboration. Message exchanges between participants are shown by Message Flows that connect the two pools, or the objects within the pools.
