These days it seems like you need to be in a city to make a reasonable living. It’s true that most companies have set up their offices in urban areas, especially in the center of cities, but does that mean cities and towns are the only places you are going to make a success of your career? If you ask most millennials, I’m sure they would tell you that that’s the case. However, research shows that it isn’t necessarily true.
If you would rather ditch city living for a more rural and relaxed life, you will be happy to hear that it is entirely possible. There is a lot of money to be made out in the country, even if you won’t be living close to office buildings. Here are a few business ideas that you might want to consider if you have your heart set on life in the countryside.
Set Up Your Own Farm
One of the first things that you might consider doing out in the country is to set up your own farm. And you will be in very good company if you do. In fact, some recent research shows that a lot of young people are now shunning city life in favor of setting up organic farms. It’s not that difficult to do even if you don’t have much experience, as you can do a lot of research when it comes to sourcing solutions and finding specialist farming equipment. Thanks to the boom in popularity of farmers markets now, you should also find that there is a big demand for organic and unique produce.
If you don’t feel like turning your back on the corporate life just yet, you could always work as a freelancer while you live in the country. That way, you have the best of both worlds – you can still make a success of a corporate career while also enjoying the many relaxing benefits that come with country life. There are lots of people who make their living working as freelance copywriters, graphic designers, and social media managers. No matter what line of work you are in, I’m sure you’ll be able to turn it into a freelance career.
Become A Property Developer
There are lots of gorgeous properties out in the country but, sadly, some are in a state of disrepair. If you are interested in property and interior design, though, you might want to turn your attention to them and start a new career as a property developer. There are now lots of people who fix ‘n’ flip houses out in the country as they often fetch a lot more money than townhouses once they are in top condition.
Start An Accommodation Business
As lots of people head out to the country on vacations, the accommodation industry is doing really well. If you move into a large home, you could always start a guesthouse business and rent out the spare rooms. That’s even easier these days thanks to Airbnb.
So, think it’s time you left the city?
