Another one that is common to the Furry fandom:

Fursuit Making

For those who don’t know about the fursuit, it is a custom suit where people with fursonas (Furries) commission makers for more than $1,000. This is where the fursona of a person becomes reality. Recently, one of it is valued at $50,000 in one bid.

It can be slowlane or fastlane depending on number of commissioners and the level of execution of this idea.

But the problem with it is that anyone can make their own fursuits because of YT Tutorials as well as it is a small to medium niche.

The way I had it explained to me was that the angle for growth was concrete and construction.

First you're filling holes in the lots you stripe , then bidding for sidewalk construction.

Definitely unsexy but you can start for a few hundred dollars.
I know a guy who does nothing but driveways. Who specializes in repairing asphalt driveways. He knows the money is in doing new driveway but in the meantime... he's booked solid months ahead. And guess what... when the time comes to build the new driveway who do you think gets the job???

Not sure if this one was mentioned yet, but Christmas lights seem very profitable. About to go into my first year of hanging lights and my minimum is $700 to start with. I'd imagine if you could get a decent sized crew together, you could sell over $100k+ worth of lights and labor from October-December.

Are you buying lights retail, wholesale, or import?

For now since I'm just starting and will only be doing 5-15 houses this year, I just went with lights from christmaslightsetc. Comes out to a little over $1.10 a bulb for C9 lights, with everything else (clips, spool, plugs, handmade extension cords) my cost is likely going to be around $1.80-$2.30 a bulb after these accessories. I'll be charging the customer $7 a bulb my first year with a $700 minimum and then bumping up to $9 a bulb my second year with a $900 minimum. Nice thing is with most Christmas light business models, you technically own the lights and the customer is just leasing them, so every year after the first year of buying the lights is straight profit from labor if the customer is repeat.
