Learning the SEO would take 1 to 3 months time frame, but there are enormous opportunities once you have become expert in SEO.

17) Yoga instructor: This would be a good idea for women and senior citizens or college students who want to spend few hours and want to make money.

18) Wedding planner: This is also one among the fast growing small business ideas. Good networking skills and skills on making things happen, are required to be successful in this business.
