101 Great Money Making Ideas by Mark Hempshell

Mark Hempshell book, 101 Great Money Making Ideas, is a home business manual packed with proven ideas for cash-raising projects to suit every interest and age group. Many successful businesses began with the simplest of ideas and next to no capital.

The book is brimming over with business ideas, inside tips and step-by-step advice. Most of the suggested projects need very little money to get up and running, but have almost unlimited money-making potential for everyone willing to have a go, both on a full time or a part time basis.

For each project you will find listed: whether it is feasible for a part-time or full-time income; the capital required; what the returns are likely to be; which other projects it could be combined with; the equipment/skills needed; the pros and cons; and details of how you would operate such a scheme. The following list of possible ideas is taken from the contents page:

Unfortunately the book, 101 Great Money Making Ideas by Mark Hempshell is now out of print, but can be purchased second hand online.
