Business Concepts

Watching pets

In the UK, there are around 51 million domesticated animals. So what happens when a pet owner must travel for business or pleasure? Pet sitting companies step in to help with this by housing, feeding, walking, and occasionally grooming services for animals.

Pet sitting has a very straightforward business model. Either you pick up clients’ pets from their homes or they drop them off at your office. You take care of the animal(s) at your house or property for the predetermined amount of time (typically charging a day rate, paid upfront).

Depending on the animals you’ll be sitting, this business idea may cost a little more to start up than you anticipate .Cats and dogs being the most common. A variety of cages, food, leads, toys, beds, and other items are required. A regular plan for feeding, cuddling, and walking may also need to be established.

If you’re doing something on a commercial scale, such as with a cattery or kennels, you could require a licence in some circumstances. A thorough knowledge of animal husbandry is essential, as is the particular. Additionally, you should make sure you have the appropriate insurance in place and have a reliable veterinarian on speed dial to handle any pet health requirements.

Through social media, local advertising (flyers, letterbox drops, etc.), and collaborations with other animal businesses (such as pet stores and veterinarians), you can promote your pet-sitting services.


Project per project fees are paid to architectural firms. As a result, they usually only have a small core crew on board at any given moment (avoiding paying for excess salaries when projects are not underway). Due to the industry’s heavy reliance on contractors (freelance architects) to come in and work on a project-by-project basis, this model has been adopted.

You must have a degree in architecture to get started, with a focus on one of the major components (3d building render, drawing, site inspection, material assessment). As a service-based firm, you will typically be paid hourly, with retainers possible for longer-term tasks.

You can also promote your service using whiteboard animation videos. For making videos you could use simple whiteboard animation softwares like DoodleMaker or Doodly along with voiceover using speech to text softwares.

Making a list of regional and national architectural firms and sending them an email with your portfolio. Then make a summary of the services you provide are two ways to promote yourself.

You can also decide to work directly with a client by advertising your skills on freelancing websites

A private attorney (Lawyer)

From a contract, criminal, familial, intellectual property, and general commercial perspective, legal counsel is greatly sought after in the UK. In most legal disciplines, there is a high demand for the services of licenced solicitors (referred to as “lawyers” in America).

Private attorneys typically bill by the hour at a fee between £80 and $2000. It  depends on the area of law they practise and the size of their clientele.

You must be admitted to practise law and a member of the Law Society in order to begin working as a private solicitor. To get started, you’ll need to spend money on a website, a business phone, and business cards. You may also want to draught fundamental legal documents, depending on your field of practise. This  can be modified to suit most clients’ requirements.

Offering free consultations to local businesses and individuals can help you gain clients as a private lawyer. On platforms for independent contractors, you may also promote your services. You can offering hourly rates or standard packages for particular tasks like writing terms and conditions, producing investment contracts. Or by reviewing documents page by page, or registering a trademark. Make sure your company is featured in local service directories for local businesses.
