BUSINESS IDEAS FOR THE PHYSICALLY ABSENT ENTREPRENEUR
Physically absent entrepreneur? Now, that sounds weird. I mean it sounds like business ideas for a ghost. The idea is actually to build a business that can stand on its own outside of you.

But what can kind of businesses are viable and can be done without you physically being present? Here are a few ideas:
Do you have a knack for making an impact in the lives of people? Are there ideas you have always wanted to share so badly then, Online Coaching might just be for you.

Social Media Manager
If you ever find me in a courtroom and the judge asks “Are you guilty of spending too much time on social media?” My honest answer would be “Yes I am, my lord.”
Lots of companies, especially startups or those in retail or travel, have a heavy social media presence and are constantly in need of people to help build their brands online. You can find these types of opportunities on sites like Flexjobs and CareerBuilder.
Do you consider yourself a natural nomad? Then add randomly searching for airfare sales or browsing Lonely Planet to your nomadic resume and carve out a niche for yourself as a private travel agent.
Ghostwriting pays pretty well, and if you’re talented at researching and creating great content within a certain subject domain, you can quickly build a roster of high-paying clientele. Reedsy, Freelancer and Upward are great sites to get you gigs.
Do you have family and friends who have properties to lease or rent out then you have just started building your business network? If so, you can make a decent amount of money on the side with relatively little work on your part. From collecting rental checks to managing repairs and improvements, or simply being on call for emergencies, a property manager is essential for most real estate investors.
