About This Course

Published 8/2015 English

Course Description

Over 100 students enrolled in just weeks shows the interest in having a second income.

If you want extra money to pay for that wonderful holiday or shiny new car, or if you need more money each month to top up your pay-packet, or if you have lost your job and need cash until you find a job, or if you are retired with time on your hands and want a new venture then this is for you.

Over 100 students enrolled in the first 72 hours of being published. The course is full of ideas that are suitable for anyone with any level of education. The course consists of easy to follow videos that are fully self explanatory,

Most of these opportunities are local and need no special expensive equipment or other outlay, no special skills, no premises (you can operate from home), and no traveling. For many you need no transport. Where you will need equipment it will be low cost or something you use at home. In some cases as the business develops you will be able to invest in more robust equipment to improve the quality and speed. Some skills can be learned on the job or in an online course.

You should take this course if you are motivated and driven to succeed, if you are positive and prepared to take enthusiastic action.

This course covers 60 local business opportunities that you could start tomorrow. But this course is not for you if you want a get rich quick scheme - I believe all overnight success has taken years of hard work.

A Self-Help Questionnaire is included together with a start up guide you can download. You can take this course in an hour or slower if you want. The course covers ideas that you can build upon. If you follow through and take some action you will be successful.

Take this course. Find an opportunity that suits. Roll up your sleeves and start making money. Good luck!

Section 1: Your success starts here

After completing this course you will be able to make an informed decision about the type of money making opportunities that you are best suited to do. You will be able to narrow your choice down without wasting time searching on Google and making mistakes. These are all opportunities that can become full-time or part-time businesses. This lecture will explain how we have chosen each opportunity to be practical and sound. Millionaires have started their empire with many of these

Section 2: Opporunities To Try

Get out in the fresh air and make money. People are desperate to have either a nice looking tidy garden or just someone to keep it looking OK. These opportunities work, Only yesterday I spoke with a local guy doing some of this work asking when he could fit in an elderly lady who needs garden help. His answer was "I've turned away about 4 people this week .I'm fully booked" That says it all


One of the biggest areas of work is cleaning. here are many types of businesses associated with cleaning and these few are all practical. Working for someone else may give you a low guaranteed income but starting on your own can eventually bring real wealth.


Photography used to be for the professional except taking snaps. Now digital photography belongs to everyone. But if you have an eye for composure and some get up and go you can make good money here


Car boot Sales and similar events are everywhere now. A good way to pick up cash whether selling your own products or buying in. Clothes can be sold, rented or converted. Watch the lecture. Might there be an opportunity here for you?


Here are some opportunities that mainly just require time and a love of animals. Take a llok and see if there is something here for you.


Food and eating is not just a passion for some but an essential for everyone. There are opportunities here for both experienced cooks and professional chefs but also those who have just picked up the skill at home.


Print and design are great ideas and money makers. Here are some, I have personally had a long association with print and design. I have little formal training as a printer except in office litho printing where I covered Central London for a major manufacturer and had many customers using the equipment. I had my first hand letterpress machine when I was 14 years old and had the first Instant Print Shop in the UK at Hammersmith in the sixties. Since then I have often acted as a print farmer for my consultancy clients.


If you have self confidence and can learn some local knowledge there are some great ideas here.I ran 2 different Dylan Thomas walks successfully around Swansea for a year. I also set up a Company delivering chauffeured tours mainly for overseas visitors. I've worked with one guide who didn't want to employ anyone but has built up a successful chauffeured trip business where he can work the days and hours he want to work, and afford to turn business away. I am a committee member of Tourism Swansea Bay which promotes everything about tourism locally and supports local business.


There are always opportunities working in an office environment as a free-lancer. Or work from home using the internet. Two local companies started when they became redundant and now operate reputable virtual office services, working from home.


If you have some writing flair there are some good opportunities here. None are not instant cash solutions but can grow into a useful fund.If you have good English, can spell check and grammar check your work (you need to be better than Word check and other), then there are opportunities galore for profitable writing.


I call this helping hands because it is mainly opportunities that are just that, helping others with their lives. Some people lead very busy lives and do not have time for routine jobs, others can afford help whilst others are incapable and need a pair of helping hands.


Today we live in a world with insufficient space. Here are some ideas to utilise the space we do have and make some spare cash. This is really big business and storage warehouse where you can hire space to store excess home goods is one of the fastest expanding business sectors. And swopping your home for holidays can save hundreds each year.


We all sell. We sell our ideas to family and friends. We sell ourselves when we go to a job interview. We sell throughout our lives. So why not find some selling to friends that will save them money or make them look good and at the same time make ourselves some cash

Section 3: Now you have the ideas You can start tomorrow
3 pages

Now is the time to recap and look at what is feasible for you, whether you in fact want to take the step and make some extra money, and whether you have the get up and go to get a second income business off the ground. Anyone can do this but only a few do, GOOD LUCK
