Residential Cleaning Services
People are busy – busy with work, school, and kids. We’re too busy to cook meals, too busy to exercise, and even too busy to clean our houses. So much so that many people are willing to pay to have their house cleaned. Gone are the days when hiring someone else to clean your house is a luxury only the rich can afford.
Which is why starting a residential cleaning service would be a lucrative business. Plus it doesn’t cost much, other than stocking up on basic cleaning supplies. Most homes usually avail of cleaning services either once a month or once a week. Once you’ve built your clientele, it’ll be easier for you to expand your business.
Graphic designers create visually appealing content such as posters, logos, advertisement, websites, and more. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the median salary for graphic designers is around $45,000. While you can learn graphic design by yourself, most designers have either a certification or a degree. Other than the cost of the design software, a graphic design business has minimal overhead.
