It’s a new year and you’re ready to be your
So let’s dive into the 11 most profitable
business ideas for 2020.
First and foremost, I have created several
businesses over the last couple of years.
Well, actually over the last decade, which
is weird and makes me feel old, but I started
when I was like 14 so it’s fine.
I’ve built quite a few businesses in quite
a few different iterations, and I’ve learned
a lot about which kinds of businesses actually
generate the most profit for you, which really
is all that matters.
Your total revenue in your business, it doesn’t
mean a lot, because a lot of businesses make
a lot of money, but their expenses are equally
as high, so they actually aren’t making any
profit, and profit is just the take-home money.
So, the amount of money that you make minus
any of your expenses equals your profit.
We want to basically help you create a business
that actually is going to create cash flow
for you and bring in profit.
The most profitable businesses take very little
money, and your time also isn’t … you’re
not slaving away at the business.
So very little time and ideally, very little
money up front.
So, you have high cashflow like I said, and
you have freedom in your time and your resources.
These came from my own experience.
It also came from looking at the trends that
are happening in business right now.
It also comes from the fact that I work with
thousands of people inside of my programs,
and they’re pretty much all entrepreneurs,
so it’s really interesting for me to watch
and I’ve been able to watch for the past couple
of years which business owners and which entrepreneurs
and which niches tend to be the most profitable.
So, if you’re excited about this and you’re
excited to hear these profitable business
ideas that you can get started on right away,
give this a thumbs up and be sure to subscribe
to this channel and make sure you hit the
bell to get notified every single time I post
a new video on Tuesdays and on Fridays.
Okay, so here’s the thing, if I’m going to
give you this list, you need to actually take
the action on them.
The first thing that I want to go over, and
the first profitable business idea, is not
a course … I will get to that in a second.
Courses are amazing, but it’s under the category
of infopreneur, and I made this video about
business plans for 2020 and you want to check
that out, because I talked a lot about infopreneurs
and why it’s such a great niche or type of
business to start, because it takes very little
cash up front and you can also scale it very
easily because it’s an online business.
So, the first thing I’m actually going to
tell you is becoming a coach or a consultant,
because that’s generally … if you want to
create a course, the first step is always
being a coach or consultant.
Creating a course without any sort of real
world expertise or experience in working with
people is a really dangerous game to play,
because you don’t actually know who’s going
to buy it.
Also, if you don’t have an audience right
now, you don’t have an audience of people
to buy that course that you’ve made and spent
So instead, to immediately start your business,
the best thing to do is to start a coaching
or consulting business, which we help people
do inside of our Authority Accelerator program.
So, coach or consultant is first.
It allows you to work one-on-one with people,
it allows you to charge a higher rate because
you’re actually spending your time one-to-one
with your clients, and you can start without
You don’t need any investment upfront, you
don’t need any help with it upfront and you
can just start working with people.
So coaching or consulting, and if you’re an
expert or have an expertise in anything, it’s
a great place to begin.
The next business is courses.
The course industry is expected to be a billion-dollar-a-day
industry by 2025, so there is so much room
in the course industry, and the really amazing
thing that I love so much about it, which
also is part of the reason I love YouTube
so much, is because you can create a course
based on you, based on your own experience,
based on your own story.
You have a problem you can solve and you want
to check out this video about how to develop
your million dollar business idea because
it will help kind of work through a lot of
But if you have a problem that you’ve solved
for yourself, that could be your course idea
or your consulting or coaching idea, and you
just need to basically develop it into this
You know that I’ve created a multimillion-dollar
course business, and I know how powerful it
is to create courses and to be able to sell
them passively on autopilot every single day.
And I highly recommend it because it does
allow you to go from working one-to-one with
people to allowing you to scale to work with
thousands of people.
I had my little consultancy.
I was able to work with like 10 clients at
a time, but then when I started making courses,
we’ve now worked with over 6000 people all
over the world.
I am one person.
I couldn’t possibly work with each of those
individual 6000 people in the past couple
of years by myself.
So, being able to package my expertise, my
methodology, and my system into a course that
anybody can study at any time has allowed
us to scale the business to multiple millions
in the last couple of years.
The courses are amazing.
Now, the next thing I wanted to talk about,
the next business idea, is a virtual assistant.
Oh my goodness gracious.
I say this because this was probably the biggest
game changer that I had in my business.
I have an amazing executive assistant on my
team who actually has been promoted on my
team because she’s so awesome.
And every entrepreneur, once you get past
the solopreneur phase, this is generally the
first hire that you make, so there is a huge
If the course industry is going to be at a
billion dollars a day by 2025, that’s a lot
of people who are going to be creating these
very lean businesses and online businesses
who are going to need help.
So getting yourself trained as a virtual assistant
right now is a really smart idea.
So you can do things like manage content,
You can help with landing pages, funnels,
A virtual assistant really is a Jill or Jack
of all trades, and if you can learn those
skillsets or even hone in on one of those
skillsets, you’re going to have a lot of demand
in the coming year, in the next couple of
years, because there are a lot of people like
me who need someone like you, especially as
this industry continues to grow.
The next business idea, the fourth business
idea, is something I like to call micro agencies
and I’ve just seen this idea popularize over
the last couple of years, and I’ve actually
even thought about starting one myself.
But if I were an expert at one particular
platform, I would definitely think about starting
a micro agency.
A micro agency is basically a very small,
lean agency that does done-for-you services,
so you actually do the work for your clients.
But by micro, I mean that you focus on one
There used to be a need for overall social
media agencies, but what I’ve seen as a trend
is that these overall social media agencies,
they don’t know how to do everything well
because social media has changed so much and
the demand has changed so much.
When I started my consultancy a long time
ago, I was doing every social media platform.
But when I honed in on YouTube was when I
was able to actually grow exponentially, and
the same thing is happening now.
So, focusing on one platform and becoming
a micro agency for that platform.
So let’s say you’re just an Instagram agency.
That’s all you do.
That makes you magnetic for everybody who
needs Instagram help and you can master that
Check out this video, I’m a Million Dollar
Secret to dive more into mastering that one
thing and why it is such a brilliant and profitable
idea for you.
But micro agencies go hand in hand with that
thought process, so that’s something else
to look at, Pinterest agency, Facebook agency,
I would really look into starting something
The fifth profitable business idea for 2020
is content creator, because guess what, if
there’s a lot of course creators, if there’s
a lot of solopreneurs, if there’s a lot of
online businesses that are getting started
and a lot of personal brands out there, and
there are more and more by the day, we, people
like me, need help with content creation.
We need videographers, we need editors, we
We need help with those things once you get
to a certain point in your business.
So, having the skillset of video and photo
content creation and even writing copy content
creation is so valuable, and it’s something
I’m seeing more and more demand for.
The other thing that’s really cool about this
is once you learn the skill set of content
creation, there’s also so many sites out there
now, things like Shutterstock, where you can
actually sell your content, your stock photography,
You can sell your content for people to use
in their businesses.
There are multiple ways that you can benefit
and create a profitable business by being
a content creator.
So, really good place to start.
And I know a lot of you are already doing
that, so now it’s thinking about how you can
generate even more income doing that.
I would also suggest if you’re going to be
a content creator, one thing that I’ve noticed
in that space as well is if you specialize
in one particular niche, you tend to do better.
So if you’re like a fitness content creator
and you’re the go to for creating badass fitness
videos or fitness photos, you’re going to
have so many clients wanting to flock to you
because it becomes this word of mouth thing
where everyone’s like, “Well, that’s the person
you want to go to for fitness videos or fitness
But, you could pick any niche, but honing
in on one niche as a content creator is a
really profitable idea moving forward.
The next thing is becoming a contractor.
Contracting is a really great, profitable
way to start a business.
If you don’t have any idea where you want
to start, you don’t have any experience right
now, becoming a contractor is generally the
It’s how I started my business.
I just started taking on these little clients
and doing social media work for them.
I was a social media manager, and that was
the contract position that I was able to start
my business with.
There are so many opportunities right now
to become a contractor, things like becoming
a channel manager for big YouTube channels,
because there are people out there who just
aren’t able to manage their channels on their
Managing comments, doing the research for
their channel, just little things like that.
A lot of people need help with that.
And becoming a member of our YouTube for Bosses
program allows you to train yourself in being
able to do that.
Just a little hint.
You want to learn more about YouTube for Bosses,
click the link below this video, bossyoutubestrategy.com.
The next thing is things like building funnels.
When I say becoming a contractor, focusing
on one specific thing and being the go to
contractor for that thing.
So building funnels, becoming a YouTube channel
manager, a personal trainer, working one-to-one
with people, a dog walker, a cleaner, a house
This allows you to do the work and get paid
to do the work.
It actually builds up cashflow, so then you’re
able to scale the business.
You don’t have to be doing the work anymore,
but you could hire somebody else to do it
for you and have even more clients, which
allows you to grow and become more and more
So, becoming a contractor is a great place
to start in building your profitable business.
The next business idea is affiliate marketing.
I did a whole video about this right here.
You can check that out and I talk to you about
passive income and how I generate my passive
income in my business.
And honestly, it’s probably the easiest and
most profitable way to start generating revenue
in your business, because you don’t have to
create anything of your own and you don’t
have to put your time and effort really into
creating something new.
You can sell things that already exist.
But in doing that, you want to check out this
video on my passive income secrets on how
to strategize around creating affiliate income,
because there are definitely ways that you
need to attack it to make sure that you’re
honing in on one thing and you become the
magnet for that one thing, so you can make
more and more money through affiliate marketing.
And you want to drive traffic with targeted
When you’re making content online for affiliate
marketing, it should all be related to one
I always give the example of if you’re a food
blogger or a food YouTuber, stay focused on
food, because your audience is going to want
to know about food, accessories having to
do with food.
Then you sell those things as an affiliate
and that’s how you generate that income.
But if you’re talking about food, and then
all of a sudden you’re selling cat toys, no
one in your audience is going to want to buy
the cat toys because they’re not there for
So, you want to stay focused on one thing.
Number eight, Amazon.
Amazon is an amazing, amazing tool for new
I have a lot of people in my programs who
use Amazon to build businesses, things like
drop shipping businesses.
The cool thing about Amazon is you can find
a product that you want to sell and create
your Amazon store, Amazon inventory, and you
don’t actually have to have a warehouse like
in the old days, where you have to house all
You can basically just sell it on demand.
And so you don’t have to have that cost of
keeping all that inventory or potentially
lost costs if you don’t sell that amount of
So, Amazon is an amazing world and there’s
a lot of great channels and YouTuber’s about
If you have recommendations for people who
you want to follow for Amazon, put them in
the comments below.
But Amazon is an interesting thing to start
Airbnb, so amazing.
What a cool time to be alive, but you don’t
need to own a home to rent a home.
Airbnb is an amazing business idea and a really
profitable business idea, especially if you
have a room in your house that you can just
start renting out, because that is just money
Maybe it’s a little bit of money, but it’s
still money coming in.
Can you rent a room in your house even for
a couple of weekends a month?
If you live in a desirable city, you’re definitely
going to be able to rent it.
I have a friend who has a place in Vancouver,
they rent out their basement and they make
about three to four thousand dollars a month
Airbnb is awesome.
Here’s the other thing that’s happening with
Airbnb that I’m seeing more and more of, is
that you don’t actually need to own a home
in order to use Airbnb to your advantage or
build a profitable business around it.
There’s this whole thing now with property
managers for Airbnb, so people who specifically
manage one property and they’re in charge
of constantly renting it out and bringing
in renters and revenue for the owner of the
That’s a whole other way to build a business
That’s something to also dive into and look
It’s something that I will be looking into
in the next year.
The next thing that is an amazing business
idea for 2020 is meal prep.
I know that sounds kind of weird, but our
greatest currency is time, and people have
less and less time.
Or, they just get to a point where they’re
like, “I don’t want to spend my time cooking.”
I’m one of those people.
I started doing meal prep last year, and I
pay a couple hundred dollars a month to get
my meals prepared for me for every lunch during
the week and some dinners.
And so if you’re a cook and you like to cook,
I can guarantee you that you would be able
to find clients within your friend circle,
within your network, who would pay you to
meal prep for them.
And if you’re already doing it, you’re already
spending your time doing it, that’s an amazing
way to bring in some extra revenue and cash.
And again, you could start that doing it yourself.
Once you build it up, you could potentially
hire people to scale the business and make
it even more profitable.
Now, the last profitable business I wanted
to mention is bookkeeping and accountants.
Holy smokes, there is such a need for this
and it’s kind of a weird gap right now because
there are people who are solopreneurs who
need financial help and guidance, but maybe
don’t have the revenue to be hiring somebody
So there is a huge opportunity for contract
bookkeepers and accountants who have that
expertise, who can basically work with people
on smaller contracts but still be generating
a good income from it.
If you have an expertise in the financial
area, there’s such a high demand for these
entrepreneurs who are working online and building
very profitable businesses but need help actually
managing the finances and the money behind
it, and it’s a job that you can do from home,
and it’s a job that doesn’t require a lot
of money upfront to grow it.
Again, highly profitable business idea and
heightened demand business idea for 2020.
