It’s A Dirty Job But Someone’s Gotta Do It!


Hard work, it’s what this great nation of ours was built on. But do people still have the same regard for it as they once did? Well, that depends on who you ask, as there are still plenty of people out there that don’t mind putting in a bit of elbow grease or getting their hands dirty to get the job done. If that is the sort of committed and hardworking person that you are, then you may find the following business suggestions interesting.

Private cleaning

So, first of all, what about owning and running a cleaning business? There is two type to choose from. Commercial cleaning where you go into office buildings or warehouse and clean up after the workers. Or private home cleaning where you clean the domestic residences of people that need help around the home.

But, before you plump for one category over another there are a few things you need to know first. For example, if you are cleaning in an industrial setting your workers may come into contact with industrial chemicals and dangerous machines. This can be a big safety risk, so while you can charge more for you services your insurance will also be greater.

Also, remember that while offices may be required to be cleaned to a certain standard, the individual homeowner may be very particular about what is done and in what manner.

Factor this in if you are thinking of going down this route as you will need to have an effective way for them to communicate their needs to whoever is doing the job.

Mechanical repairs

Another business area, perfect for folks that are happy getting their hands dirty is mechanical repairs. There are a lot of business, homes, and even individuals that rely on mechanical devices like cutting machines, washing machines, and cars. That means they will need someone on hand to fix them when they go wrong.

Of course, a certain level of training for your employees is required, depending on the particular field that you will be specialising in. As is the correct insurances like the options offered by One Sure Insurance, when working with high-value and high-risk items like vehicles.

Party and Event Organising

If you are organised and creative as well as fond of a bit of hard work, then you might just want to consider opening a party planning businesses.

It’s a varied field to be in as it can encompass anything from sitting with a client and deciding on a theme or cake for a child’s birthday party. To clearing away all the mess and dirty dishes, once all of the festivities are done.

To break into the field, you could organise a few friends’ soirees for free and get them to recommend you to people as paying clients.



Lastly, don’t forget that you can make a tidy profit from running a gardening business. Whether that is garden maintenance or design. Of course, both will require you to get a little dirt under your fingernails from time to time, but that may just be part of the appeal.
