Estimated read time 3 min read

Teach them about alternate energy sources and off-grid living. With load shedding becoming widespread in the country, many South Africans are looking for alternative power sources. Others are considering abandoning Eskom and going off the grid entirely.

You don’t have to be a professor to educate people how to do this, but you should know more about the subject than the typical person.

Launch a water-saving car wash.

South Africa is a water-scarce country, as experts have warned for years. So, for this side business, you’d need to come up with a creative way to wash vehicles without wasting water.

Having this distinguishing quality will set you apart from the competition and lead to a successful service.

Pick up and drop off children at school

Schoolchildren who have working parents or guardians frequently take taxis to and from school. While this may be handy for parents, it is risky for youngsters due to South Africa’s high crime rates.

If you have a large enough vehicle, you may provide a more personalized service by picking up the children from their houses or bus stations and putting them off at their schools.

Because the afternoon is generally a hectic time for parents, getting and delivering children to their homes could be profitable. Needless to add, you must demonstrate that your children will be secure with you by presenting your driver’s license and disclosing your criminal past, if any.

Make your own embroidery

Embroidery is the process of sewing beautiful designs onto fabric. These patterns are often created using thread and include a variety of stitches.

It’s an ancient technique that was originally used to repair clothing. Clothing was rarely thrown away because it was costly to create. They were instead repaired.

This grew into a more vibrant creative statement over time. Home-made clothing is a modest industry, but it is in increasing demand due to its lower environmental impact than fast fashion.

Consider reselling second-hand things with beautiful workmanship, or embroider pillow covers. Find a style that you can call your own and set out to conquer the world.

Train to be a personal trainer.

If you are skilled in fitness, this could be an excellent way to supplement your income. Exercise has been shown to benefit not just the body but also the mind.

This is why regular exercise is advised. This shows that you already have clients who are willing to learn from you.

You may post a video of your workouts on social media and invite others to contact you for further information.
