    Default New career/hustle

    So if you could start any small business what would it be?

    In my head I would love a little gift shop in a trendy suburb or a gifting/personal shopping service.

    I’m bored and want to do something but not study.

    This is an interesting one! It changes depending on my needs at the time.
    If money wasn’t an issue then I’d love some beautiful niche gift shop somewhere coastal and lovely.

    Then when I’m feeling highly motivated and confident I’d set up a consultancy business working with companies on org culture / employee satisfaction / employee health and well-being.

    You’ve hit the nail on the head. I would love the pretty little shop but know it’s not a money making idea.

    I’d like to open a book and coffee shop. The idea of sitting on a comfy couch with a cups and a nice treat reading a book sounds like heaven !

    I'd like to open up a cafe and patisserie in our cbd for the nearby office workers and businesses. There are cafes, and there are bakeries with pretty basic sandwich bars, but what I want to do would step it up a notch.
    Ideally, I wouldn't even have to open on weekends.

    I'd love to be confident in my skills enough to do a cake /slice business.

    Dessert boxes are a bit of a thing right now. You could start with those, making cupcakes and slices for them mixed with chocolates or lollies. Then as your confidence grows with your reputation, start doing cakes
