Good question. There are many UK home business ideas that you can start easily. Today, I give you not just three or four, but eight quick-start business ideas for you to choose from! For most of them, all you need is yourself and the skills you already have. For others, you may want to sharpen the saw with some additional education and tools. They may cost you something, but they’re well worth the investment in the end, because you’ll earn a lot from your sharpened skills.


1.  Personal Trainer

People are living longer and are more conscious of their health. In addition, childhood fitness is an increasing trend. Thus, becoming a personal trainer makes for an attractive UK home business idea.

As a personal trainer, you can visit clients in their homes, or you can look to offer fitness classes either at local fitness centres or even rent a local hall and run classes of your own. Think of a USP (unique selling point) to make yourself stand out above the other trainers, or perhaps become a qualified specialist in fields such as nutrition or Pilates.

2.  Yoga Instructor

Yoga has been around for decades and shows no sign of going away any time soon. It’s very appealing to the older population, as the more mature amongst us benefit from low-impact workouts. Yoga has also gained popularity within the medical world. Today, many GPs recommend yoga to their patients. Yoga is also a relatively inexpensive exercise routine, as there’s no need for expensive exercise equipment. As an instructor, you don’t necessarily need a studio to teach yoga; you could visit clients at their homes or even their office.


3.  Personal Tutor

Gone are the days when only struggling children were given extra tuition. As the competition for good jobs has become ever greater, more parents now choose extra lessons to enhance their children’s knowledge. You can start by offering classes for students in their homes, in their schools, or even in other locations. To be successful in home tutoring, you may need additional qualifications. Also, you need to be competitive with your pricing, have the relevant experience, and where possible, excellent references and testimonials.
