Many of us have dreamed of starting a business and becoming an entrepreneur, but few have harnessed that dream and made it a reality. Why is this?
It could be due to financial constraints, or a lack of self-belief, but I think the biggest road block is a lack of time.
Indeed, building a business can be time consuming and resource intensive, but it doesn’t have to be. In today’s technologically advanced there are more avenues than ever to quickly start and launch a business.
So, if you have that burning desire to work for yourself and control your own destiny, here are 10 businesses you can launch in under a day:
1. Social Media Marketer
Social Media is powerful. Platforms like Facebook, Twitter and Instagram have become an integral part of people’s lives, and businesses have recognized the opportunity it brings.
If you have a knack for creating engaging content and building a following, becoming a social media marketer could be for you.
Management fees for handling social media accounts are typically charged on a monthly basis, and even if you start off with a modest fee of $500 a month, signing up 8-10 clients will already push you into a 4-figure a week income.
2. Freelance Writer
Have a way with words? Why not channel your literary skills into a decent income by offering to write for people around the world? Putting ideas into words in an engaging way takes skill, a skill that businesses are willing to pay for. You could write articles for magazines, ghost write, proofread, or copywrite if you know how to use words to convince people to part with their money.
Writing is a universal need for all businesses, making the client base virtually limitless.

Affiliate Marketing is the go-to enterprise for anybody looking to get into business for themselves quickly, cheaply and without the need of a specialized skill-set.
Basically, as an affiliate marketer, you will find a product or service with sales potential, promote it on your own platforms and earn a commission from any sales generated by your efforts. Simply, right?
Maybe. Maybe not. It depends on how well you can sell the products in your writing, and whether you can drive traffic to your platforms. But, if you can do it right, the earnings potential is huge.
