Meta Description: Thanks to technology, entrepreneurs can set up businesses in the comfort of their own home. If you want to build a home business, here are some ways to get started. Rather than hammering out ways to keep your current career afloat during remote work, why not pursue a new business idea while working from home?

Thanks to advancements in technology, aspiring entrepreneurs can start a business venture through remote work. If you’re not sure where to start, here are some business ideas that can inspire you.

1. Digital products and services

The shift to the online world has allowed creators to launch digital products from their own homes. These include online courses, ebooks, designs, and merchandise. For example, Jorden Roper - a freelance writer - launched the Creative Revolt. Her home-based business offers cold emailing and blogging classes for freelance writers.

He initially gained popularity as a financial guru by launching a Youtube channel that has amassed 1.6 million subscribers.

2. Handcrafted items 

Entrepreneurs with a penchant for handcrafted or vintage jewelry, clothes, crafts and art products can build their own home-based business on Etsy. Etsy is a global marketplace where independent creators can create and sell by launching their own online store.

For example, Riyo Kihara from Japan launched an Etsy business for stamps which feature heart-topped cupcakes, adorable cats and vibrant flowers. Her shop -talk to the sun- became so successful that she made more than 18,000+ sales and built a shop with more than 1200 products.
