Innovation drives society forward in all its aspects. Entrepreneurs are essential leaders for the progress and direction of these innovations! Some fields, however, don’t get as much attention as others. Areas like finance, travel, and in-home care don’t get the spotlight like the glorified fields of technology or entertainment, but they can be equally lucrative and require interests and passions you might find you identify in yourself!
Money management and understanding is a consistent need for private and public enterprises, and individuals. If you have an aptitude for accounting or financial strategy, utilize those much sought-after skills to create a secure business. Consult on fundraising, investments, and other elements of general finance. Create a firm for loan brokerage, or an agency for insurance. Consider international currency-changing if you are near a major hub of worldwide travel. According to Startup Talky, there are a variety of finance-involved tasks that you may not realize, so look into sub-fields of finance to see what interests you. Finance is required in every field of business…so make that business yours!
For some people travel is a hobby, for others an escape, and for even more, a necessity for work or family. This makes the travel industry a highly trafficked (and therefore lucrative) area for entrepreneurs to enter—from tourism to logistics and strategy to travel agents who make the whole process smooth and stressless. According to Dream Vacations, travel is expected to explode in the coming months with the pent-up demand of the pandemic. People are ready to get out again to see the world, meaning this is an excellent time to pursue a business in travel.
The in-home care industry is much under-recognized, but much appreciated by those who utilize its work. For the elderly or handicapped who struggle to maintain their home and well-being, in-home care is an invaluable resource of help and health and safety. For this reason, people are very willing to invest in a company that they can trust will ease some of the stress of making sure the people they care about—who maybe just need a bit more help—are well cared for. According to Home Care Pulse, if you are passionate about interactions with people and seeing the reward of your work on an individual scale, in-home care may be a very rewarding field for you.
The business you start must be something you can connect to and feel excited about and proud of. Mainstream industries can be intimidating and overwhelming, so look into more unique and growing fields that match your interests.
