Can this be a business?

Do you think providing administrative service to small businesses and to individuals be profitable? When I say administrative service i am talking about designing cards, flyers, postcards, doing their taxes, filing out paperwork, typing, faxing, emailing, and responding to mail.

  • yes. I have heard there are positions like this online to do it for small businesses, just about anywhere. that isn't my line of work so I never tried to find them. I am sure you could reach out to small businesses in your area. even if they aren't ready now, they may be interested in the future, to prevent having to hire personnel to provide those services.

  • Definitely! In fact, I've done something like that before, in times past. Just find the right person / company to work for, and it should prove to be a very lucrative business. I started off doing business cards/flyers for different individuals.
