One of the ways someone can earn multiple streams of income is to sell up a side business. This is how some of the world famous business started.

There are some of the businesses that was started in the dormitory of the colleges.

It is been said that a business that will stand the test of time needs to solve problems for a lot of people.

And the business expert usually advise someone to look around them whenever they want to start up a business to look for opportunity.

Some even say that it is good to create a business around someone's hobbies. So I want to ask you people that what kind of business is good? I'll be very grateful if you can give me an idea.
 

Good luck

It depends on what people really want or what they do buy in the area during that particular season.I will say it will be a good idea if one venture into selling of umbrella and probably sweater considering the weather.it will really move market and one can generate more income from such weather.There more be zeal to progress in any business one does in life.

Someone is saying that it is good to go into the business as a lot of people will be looking for something that will make them feel warm during the winter. I consider this as a seasonal business though there are some people who are selling coffee every now and then in my city. I will do feasibility study on it before I could decide what to do.

Someone has suggested a good business idea. Selling sweater and umbrella is one of the fastest and selling business during the winter because of the cold weather. But to be frank, I don't like selling seasonal business. I like it when my business is sold in all weathers. And not one weather only.

The truth is that business generally is seasonal. There are some seasons when some business is boom and some do not make profit. Winter is a period of very cold environments so I think there are so many businesses in which you can venture into and make a whole lot of sales. Selling of sweater and other clothing materials will be profitable.

I don't think seasonal business can be a good business because you might be able to sell well during the season and after that you will have to wait for another season, possibly after one year, to sell the items. If you want to do seasonal business chose a business, have products to sell all through the year. For example sell T-shirts in summer an sell jackets in the winter and sell umbrellas in the rainy days.

What kind of business you want to do in the winter depends on how much money you have and where you are located. Money and location determine the type of business you should be doing. However, if you want to devote your business to a specific season, you should choose a niche that does not require a big investment.

I think the business I know is the sale of umbrella and rain coat ,most especially in a place where there is high rain fall and you also need to consider the location or place ,as it will determine the amount of customers you would get from the business I think

Selling winter clothes and other items used during winter only may help . It also depends on the weather during winter in the area. Some places especially tropical coastal areas have a mild winter, while other places have low temperatures during winter. More winter items will be required in areas with a low temperature.

To be candid, I don't really like advise people to embark on selling of goods that can only be sold in a particular season. I always like it when the business is capable of being sold both at the winter and summer seasons. This will allow much profit to be accumulated.

In India with change of weather many things like eating habits, clothes are changed. Whole India have not winter season. So the area which have winter, business of woolen clothes are good one. Rice or poor every one wants woolen clothes in winter. It is business of 3-4 month but one can earn handsome amount in this period. Here in my city in every winter Tibbaties come here to sell woolen clothes

I don't advise people to focus on seasonal product to sell as a business. It can be very hard to make money once the season is over. Businesses that target season should be a side hustle. It should be additional source of income for some who want to diversify the business adventures. I would rather invest my money than setting up a seasonal business.

I am also agree with you but it doesn't mean that peoples who are doing a special business in winter will not do any work in summer. If some are selling hot soups and other drinks they sell cold drinks in summer. It is not question that a person is doing non-seasonal business but most of will focus on business as per season.

@anil02 you are very correct. There are some people out there who are setting up is side hustle business during the winter and they still have another business they are running. This is very possible if you plan your way very well. There are numerous businesses you can set up during the winter. Just make sure that the business you are setting up is really bad with the season to make good money.

Seasonal businesses are really great. This is because you are selling things that people really need at that time. For the winter season, people need things that keep them warm. So you can't really start an ice cream business around this time. But you can sell warm clothing and blankets, those will be patronized more.
