A lot of people want to be in business for themselves. It gives you a level of freedom that you generally don't get to enjoy if you are working for someone else. I mean, let's face it, if you are working for someone else you are lining their pockets with gold while you are eating dirt in most cases.

But what are you going to do for a living so that you can make ends meet? Well if you are willing to live a simple life then you can get by on really working only about 20 hours a week more or less. I've done it for years. Here are some of the things that I've done to help pay the bills.
1. Start a cleaning business - Yes it might not be all that glamorous but it does pay well. I've done office cleaning and floors for grocery stores for years. The work is generally done at night so that is a consideration but it pays well and it gives you time to yourself while you are cleaning.
2. Work with apartment communities - Are you handy? If you are you can get some work helping out with the maintenance department at one of the local apartment communities. This pays well, depending on what you charge of course, and is a great way to earn some money. Generally you will have more work than what you can handle if you are good at what you do.
3. Wash some Windows - Window washing is enjoyable and profitable. If you land a few businesses with monthly accounts you can end up earning a fair amount of money. Try looking at some of the local car dealerships for work because they tend to have a lot of windowsDifferent Business Ideas That Work
