Hi Rudolph

By now you've probably already started your own business (it's almost a year since your original post). If not, I can maybe recommend something that definately works.

Since you were talking about doing more or less the same line of work as in your 9-5 day job, I would suggest you look at providing credit management services "virtually" to your own clients.
- the learning curve is non-existing since you already have all the experience
-start-up costs are minimal. You only need a computer, internet connection (which you already have) and a place at home to work

Start doing it on an part-time basis until you have a nice client base, then decide if it is truly what you want to do.

Companies are paying quite well for these type of services. A good website to take you through the whole process of starting your own "virtual services" business from home is: be-virtual-assistant-wise.com.

There are so many good ideas in this thread. Let us know what you have decided to do in the end.

Regards
Francis

1. go for something you'll enjoy (you're more likely to work at it if it's something you enjoy, and thus it'll have a greater chance of success)


So true. Working at something that you enjoy doing will not only keep your levels of your interest active, but will also keep you motivated for the long run.

Yup! That's a great idea either. Just don't forget to unwind, don't get too busy.
