They are all legal ways through which you can make money. Continue to read this article, and you might learn a thing or two.

Here are five new business ideas for you

Dog breeding

You might think this is beyond you because it needs a lot of time and money. You will need to invest these two things to flourish, but this is not beyond you. You won’t need to purchase too many dogs to breed.

Perhaps two or three. Take good care of them, buy a bitch that is healthy and get it another healthy mating partner.

Dogs give birth a lot, which will be to your advantage. Feed and take good care of the puppies and take them to the vet to check and sell them.

It will interest you to know that 1 to 3-month-old puppies cost between GHS 500 to GHS 9,000 depending on the breed. That is good money. You can do it too.

All you need is enough money to invest, money that will return. It would be best if you had enough time to look after your dogs and puppies and accurate knowledge about their upkeep.

Help People Build their Resumes

Drafting a killer resume/ curriculum vitae is not always easy. Many people find it challenging to put relevant information together to create a masterpiece to get them into their dream jobs.

All you need to do is to learn how to draft a professional curriculum vitae, and you are good to go. If you already know how to do this, you are at an advantage over someone who now has to learn.

You can charge between GHS 30 to GHS 50 or more for an excellent resume. Usually, you don’t do this only.

You need to add freelance and ghostwriting to make it a wholesome business. Tutoring and helping students do their assignments can also fetch you some good money.

Become an Affiliate Marketer

A reputable company will pay you for advertising their goods and services on your website or social media platform; that is what affiliate marketing is. How do you do this?

You need to join an affiliate program like Jumia Affiliate Program. Before that, you need to gather enough social media presence or enough audience, ones you know will patronize whatever you will be advertising.

Generate an affiliate link and share it on your blog or platform, and you will get paid anytime someone uses the link you generated to purchase an item.

Buying to resell may sound like it will take forever for someone to purchase an item, but it is not; once you have the audience, who knows? Someone may need what you are advertising. Affiliate marketing is a job you can add to any other business you are already engaged in. No special skills, not much effort, and it’s easy.

Make Use of Your Private Car

And no, we are not asking you to become an Uber driver. All you need to do is pick up a few people on your way to work. Before you pick them, tell them they will pay.

Else they might think you are only giving them a lift. There is nothing wrong with being kind and giving people a lift on your way to work, but the cost of living is high, and everyone needs to work smart.

Usually, people stand by the roadside and wait for minutes before getting public transport.

You will save them time, and they get to ride in comfort. Always make sure you pick up people who are going in your direction. Your car is not an Uber, so if you work in the Tema community, you are coming from Nungua.

You can pick up three to four people on your way and drop them for something small.

Cook For People and Make Money

You need customers for this. All you need to do is to visit the home of one of your customers, cook different delicious Ghanaian and continental meals, dish them into plastic bowls, cover them and keep them in their refrigerator for them. They can eat this food for three weeks or more.

You don’t have to be a chef to do this. Some people are very busy with work and have little or no time to make good food. This is your opportunity to help fill the tommies of these poor workaholics for some cool cash!

Sounds fun. Once you know how to make delicious meals, you will make friends in no time.


Most of these jobs may not bring you much money, but they will bring you the one you can use to eat or buy some clothes, and who knows, if you can save enough you could buy something bigger and better.
