Whether you’re the entrepreneurial sort or not, you might have felt the desire to start your own business. If so, you’re not alone. Surveys say that two-thirds of Americans want to open their own business. While you might have felt the desire to, you likely came up with plenty of reasons why you shouldn’t. Perhaps you don’t know how to build a brand. Or maybe you aren’t sure how to grow an audience on social media.  

If those are some of the biggest reasons you haven’t pursued your entrepreneurial dreams, the good news is you can easily overcome those doubts. There are plenty of tools out there. For instance, check out Hashtags ForLikes, which can help you grow your social media audience and your brand.

However, one of the biggest challenges is coming up with a business idea. Finding the right business idea can be hard. But finding one that’s truly unique can be even harder.

To help you out, we’ve put together a list of unique business ideas below. Any one of these can spark a fire in your entrepreneurial spirit.

Eco-Friendliness Consulting

More than half of Gen Z, Millennials, and Gen X say that they are willing to pay more for eco-friendly products. Moreover, 87 percent of travelers say they want to do so sustainably, and the list goes on.

In other words, people are becoming more conscientious about their choices and how they affect the earth and everything on it. But they aren’t always sure how to go about making changes. If you love green living and are exceptionally eco-friendly, you could start an eco-friendliness consulting business. Through this entrepreneurial venture you could help clients make changes and adapt to a greener lifestyle.


Cookie Dough Cafe

Sometimes after a long day at the office or a day full of stress, kicking back with a tube of cookie dough is the best way to unwind. Even if your day has gone smoothly, nothing beats a handful of your favorite unbaked cookie.

If you love to bake, (or not bake), and have a knack for finding creative but delicious combinations, then a cookie dough café could be the perfect entrepreneurial business for you. You can serve your guests classics like chocolate chip. Or get creative and serve up your own twists that everyone will enjoy.

A Doll Hospital

Kids often grow attached to their toys. However, eventually those toys become so well loved that they show a lot of wear and tear if they don’t fall apart completely. It’s a sad day when a favorite toy has to be thrown away.

You could change that, though, if you have an entrepreneurial streak and you’re also handy with fixing up dolls, action figures, and other toys. Instead of parents having to toss their kids’ favorite toys, they can send them on over to you at your doll hospital. And you could fix them up as good as new or better.

Battery Subscription Service

Everybody uses batteries, but people don’t often think to buy them until their batteries have died. In short, batteries are one of those things that you don’t think about until you need them. However, it’s always a hassle to go to the store if all you need is a few batteries.

By starting a battery subscription service as your entrepreneurial endeavor, you could solve that problem once and for all. If you know roughly how long batteries are supposed to last, you can ensure that your clients get batteries for their remotes, smoke alarms, watches, and whatever else just in time. Earn hearty recommendations for your entrepreneurial operation by saving your customers an unplanned trip to the store.

Pet Bakery

Our animal friends love treats just as much as we do. However, it’s not always a good idea to share an ice cream cone or cupcake with your pup, cat, lizard, or whatever kind of pet you have. If you always wish you could, though, why not create your own recipes and open up a pet bakery?

Here, you could create and sell “sweet treats” that pets will love. The difference would be that your treats won’t cause pets illness or other issues. You’re not the only one watching your puppy staring at you with big eyes when you eat a piece of pie, wishing you could share without causing your friend any troubles.

Luckily, there are plenty of options out there that can get you thinking, even if they aren’t the perfect fit for you. What other unique business ideas can you imagine?
