Jobs in rural locations are not always easy to access due to lack of position availability, job choices or a potentially long commute. Many factors need to be considered when contemplating the home-based work option, including personal dedication and commitment which are crucial for having a successful business when you are your own boss. However, from a product-oriented business to a service-based endeavour, there are many options in a rural setting to build a business either full or part-time.
Child or Petcare
Starting a childcare or pet care business is a popular home-based business option. It is necessary to know local, state and federal regulations before beginning a home-based service such as childcare to be able to meet all legal obligations. This type of work may be full-time or provided on an as-needed basis.
With the Internet available in many remote locations due to satellite service, more individuals, even in rural areas, now own personal computers. This makes computer service and repair a viable home-based business option for those with the skills or training. Computer service and repair may be provided on-site or at a local customer's home for an additional fee.
Internet-based options for home-based business may include product sales through online auctions or through the use of a website of one's own or that of someone else, tutoring, online class instruction, professional consulting, or freelance writing for content websites and online publications.
