Small business ideas you can start in 2019

It’s everybody’s dream to be able to clock out of their nine-to-five jobs and finally become their own boss.

Being answerable to no one but yourself and starting your own business definitely has a lot of perks.

But while many people aren’t lacking in passion in that regard, getting a sense of direction might be a bit difficult. To help you out, we’ve compiled a list of business ideas you can start in 2019.

Handyman Business  

If you’re the type of person who’s handy with a wrench, or aren’t the type to get squeamish when fixing stuff around the house, then maybe starting a small handyman business is for you.

You can look up how much your time and expertise is online, and you can start advertising yourself at a local newspaper. Also, if you have friends who hire you to help with their home improvement projects, you can ask them to refer you to people they know who might need your help.


One of the many things on demand nowadays are furniture and other goods made of wood. Even better if you’re able to create unique items on demand.

With 3D printing having made a splash among crafting circles, many people might consider woodworking a dying art, but that doesn’t mean the demand for wooden furniture or items is getting any lower. Start by posting and selling some of your best pieces online, and once you’ve made a significant following, you can start accepting custom orders.

T-Shirt Printing Business  

If you have a bit of capital and enough creativity, then perhaps starting a printing business might pique your interest. Much like woodworking, custom-made items, especially shirts, are in high demand, whether from private individuals, or from other businesses.

According to Merch Metrics, a website that has a collection of tutorials primarily about t-shirt printing, the items you’ll need to start a t-shirt printing business are relatively inexpensive, and easy to get a hold of. As a matter of fact, you can practically start this business in your garage.

Bed and Breakfast  

If you live in an area that sees a significant amount of traffic from tourists and if you have a few extra bedrooms to spare, then consider converting your home into a bed and breakfast. Start by looking into the right kind of licensure you’ll need from the state, and do a bit of redecorating.

Do a bit of research on what your potential guests are interested in and make special packages or themes that will make their stay as enjoyable and as comfortable as possible.


The word landscaping might be a bit intimidating to many people, especially since many of us think of landscapers as having backgrounds in architecture or something similar in order to do their jobs.

In truth, however, many people, especially older folk, mostly just need to mow their lawn, trim a tree or even set up seasonal decor on their lawns and backyards. If you can get a hold of the necessary equipment, then a landscaping business can prove lucrative.

Starting a business might seem like a monumental task, but many don’t realize that having the right amount of passion is already half the job done.

Just do a bit of research, put in a bit of effort and money, and you’re on your way to realizing your dreams of becoming your own personal boss.
