Are you the type of person who your friends come to for advice and ideas? Do they appreciate how well you listen and ask them questions that help them figure out what they want? You could make a great coach or consultant.
You already may know how much freedom starting a business could bring you and your family. If you are someone who wants to start a business that can start making money right away, and you are willing to exchange your time for money (you know, the way jobs and money work, right?), starting a service-based business may be a good choice for you.
