1. Baking Classes – If you are a professional baker, you would have been already doing it! For those who just love to bake(read passion), you could enrol for a professional class and learn the tricks of the trade. There is a lot of demand for preservative free, organic, gluten free cookies and cakes. You could again use social media to reach out, advertise in the local papers, send out flyers to get business. You could also talk to the local grocery seller to keep your stuff and see if you could sell on a regular basis with them after gauging the response. Never reject an idea without trying it!

3. Photography – Pre/Post wedding shoots, birthdays and anniversaries are just some of the occasion s where people look for photographers. if you have an inclination towards it, maybe you could get yourself a small course to get yourself learn the basics better. This would give your confidence a boost as well. Learning the ropes is just one part to it. These days, the social media gives a lot of scope to reach out and get yourself work. For instance, create a face book page, invite your friends to like it. Create your instagram profile, provide regular updates. You could also hold small contests and offer to get their pictures clicked at a discount or even as a freebie- there is no better publicity better that word of mouth. Be prepared to step out to fulfil your assignments (like late evening parties) and make sure you have the necessary support at home to be able to take it up as a profession.

6. Tailoring Services – If you are skilled in this field or have some passion for garment designs, this could be an area to explore. An upcoming trend is to tie up with the tailors/boutiques in the locality and provide the door to door service right from taking the measurements to delivering the final product. This is a lucrative field, however, one has to be able to manage very stiff timelines and the quality/fit  of the final outfit has to be impeccable to be able to demand a premium.
