If you’re interested in starting your own business, there are many opportunities available. Many of these businesses can generate lucrative incomes and provide financial stability to last a lifetime.

Here are five of examples of great business opportunities that you could get started on today:

Become an eBay Entrepreneur

This popular online marketplace gives women the chance to be their own bosses. You can create and sell clothing, jewelry and other fashion accessories that are in high demand. You may even want to consider purchasing items from a wholesaler and then listing them on eBay for a profit. One of the best parts about this job is that you’ll be able to make money from the comfort of your own home and set your own hours. You also never know where it can lead. The founder of Nasty Gal started out as an eBay reseller.

Sell Emergency Kits

Businesses and households are often not as prepared as they should be for emergencies, and you can help by selling them emergency kits that feature useful supplies. You can include first aid items like bandages, antibiotic ointment and gauze pads in your kits. You can also add lighters, LED lanterns and water storage devices that will be handy in many emergency situations. Catherine Hooper and other driven female entrepreneurs have great found success in starting one of these types of businesses.

Invest in a Franchise

Many of the top companies in today’s market feature franchising opportunities. You can essentially run your own store under a particular business’s name while adhering to the principles and sales strategies of that company. Many fast food restaurants, spas and health clubs offer franchising options that often prove to be highly lucrative. You’ll need to invest a certain amount of money up front to get started, but you can profit handsomely if you’re successful in your sales.

Create an Online Bookstore

You can choose to sell either physical books or downloadable ebooks from your very own online bookstore. If you’re not tech savvy, you can hire a web designer to create a website and set up an ordering system that will allow customers to buy any of your featured books you have for sale. You can obtain books to sell on your website by purchasing physical books from a wholesaler or reselling used books bought at yard sales. There are even websites that allow you to buy ebooks for a low price and resell them from your online bookstore.

Start a Care Service

If you have a knack for helping others, this business opportunity may be the right fit for you. You can choose to care for children or adults that require supervision and assistance. Although some specialized training may be needed before you can embark on this career path, you can easily obtain the necessary skills to start your own business. As your business grows, you’ll likely want to consider hiring qualified employees to provide additional assistance.
