Five Potential Money Making Trends for 2022

Are you thinking about making extra money in 2022? Even considering starting your own business?

Here are five trends I feel are potential money makers-


Crimes of all kinds on the rise. You might not have seen an increase where you live, but others haven’t been so lucky. I think people are going to be looking to securing their home, their cars, even feeling more at ease while shopping. Think about how you can help people increase their sense of personal security. Maybe you can teach a class on self-defense. How about setting up a web site where you review various home security systems.


Some parents chose not to have their children return to a school setting and I think it’s going to be a trend that will continue into 2022 and beyond. Parents new to homeschooling often don’t know where to start or where to get resources and that’s where you can come in. Even if you’re not a teacher, you can start a business with one and offer parents peace of mind knowing that their children are getting top quality resources and materials. You could even offer separate tutoring sessions too.


I don’t have to tell you all things are getting more expensive. A few years ago items were so cheap that if they broke it wasn’t worth paying someone to repair them. Times are changing and people are going to think twice before they toss them in the garbage. Can you repair things? Maybe it’s small engines, maybe it’s TVs or maybe it’s simply sewing and repairing clothes.

Growing Food

One thing none of us can go without is food. The grow your own food movement is picking up. Do you have a green thumb? Have you grown vegetables for years and can you share your knowledge with others. You could teach in your local area or put together a class online.

Earth and Eco Friendly

There’s lots of talk about climate change and things like green energy and eco friendly products are always in the news. Do you know anything about solar and wind energy? Have recipes for green clean products? You could teach classes or even start a green cleaning company.

I hope this gets you thinking about money making opportunities for 2022 and beyond. Remember that entrepreneurs always solve problems for others so think about these five trends and begin brainstorming.
