More and more people are looking to make a big change in their working lifestyle and become their own boss and tech related businesses are often one of the easiest to get involved with.  While being your own boss doesn’t necessarily mean going to university to learn to code or training to be a web designer, there are a number of jobs that you can get into with some training that builds on your own experience.

If you spend a lot of time on social media, understand how the different sites work and how to get the most out of them, then training to be a social media consultant might be an ideal job.  While getting the hang of Facebook and Twitter is relatively simple, the other names in the social media world are gaining momentum and businesses don’t always have the time to learn them.  Sites such as Pinterest, Instagram and Tumblr are all gaining in audience numbers and being able to consult with businesses how to increase their presence is also a growing area.

Smart product development

Concepts such as the Internet of Everything and the way smartwatches are quickly becoming a normal part of life shows that the development of smart products is going to continue and grow over the coming years.  If you have an idea for a product or can work with others who do in a partnership, then you can get small business financing from company such as Sred Financing and look to make the dream a reality.  From smart doorknobs that can lock depending on the grip used to lighting that changes when a chair reclines, the possibilities are endless.



If you don’t have that big idea yourself, perhaps you can help people that do by working as a crowdfunding consultant.  More and more individuals and small businesses are finding financing through crowdfunding but making sure you are doing it right and will have the best success takes a little work.  By acting as a consultant in this areas, especially if you have a background in finance, means you can help others realize their dream while achieving your own.

Content writing

While not technically a tech job, content writing or ghost-writing is a growing area as companies realize that quality content is the way forward in terms of good search engine results and gaining customer interest.  Working from home to write what people need can be a great way to become self-employed and makes for an interesting and varied occupation.  There are also a number of websites that can be used to find this kind of work and you can build up credibility on them to get better jobs – the online version of word of mouth!
