If you’re interested in being a weekend entrepreneur, check out these five ideas you can start while you're still working at your day job, quoted from

1. Garage Sale
We can say, this is the most popular of weekend business, because it is easy to do. If you have a garage or a big yard, use it for sell your unused items but still worth to wear. Like your shirt, bag, shoes, accesories and other. Sell those things with cheap price, so people interested to buy.

2. Remote English Tutor
Teaching English as a second language can be a very lucrative side business, and it takes absolutely nothing to get started. If you're a native English speaker, there are countless people who are willing to pay up to Rp 50.000/hour.

3. Handmade Business
For handmade entrepreneurs, this is especially challenging because we love what we do so much, it’s tempting to spend most of our time creating things, and not enough time marketing and selling them and planning for the future. Once you start selling the products you make, you are a business owner. 

4. Entrust Service Business
Nowadays, this business become popular in social media. You can use this chance if you are at shopping malls. It is easy! You can take photos of any popular product, like bag, shoes, accesories or food, then upload it to your social media and let your friends or other people see and maybe they going to buy it through you. Commonly, price for this service is Rp 25.000,-/product. While the price for the product is same as at the store.

5. Food Truck
You can start your own food truck and just set up shop at weekend events or at high traffic areas in your area each weekend.

if you want to be successful, you need to find the best possible locations. You might choose places like fairs and local events when they come up. But you can also pick out some regular locations to set up shop during the week, so that people know where they can find you on a regular basis.

You can make it even easier for people to find you wherever you are if you set up a presence online and on social media. Update your Facebook page or Twitter account with where you’ll be on each day so that your loyal fans can find you and buy food from you.
