1. Start a virtual assistant business ($12K/year)

Julmar Grace Locsin from Davao City, Davao del Sur, Philippines started FVA Business Consultancy ago, a virtual assistant business.

  • Revenue: $1,000/ month
  • Founders: 2
  • Employees: 14
  • Location: Davao City, Davao del Sur, Philippines

Ten years ago, my husband and I were working in an office set-up. Due to a mix of struggles experienced, my husband and I decided to quit our job and transition into freelancing. The transition phase was difficult since we didn't have the facilities needed like a computer and internet connection. We worked in an internet cafe for the first month of our freelancing career until we bought our personal computer and had our internet connection.

We had experience downtime in our new career at first, but we grow and learn from our mistakes as we go along. Freelancing changed the quality of our lives, our family, and so with our marriage. We embrace these benefits to realize that if mothers can work at home, they can earn while taking care of their family.

Another thing is the overseas workers. They have been working far from their family to make a living. Those who are exhausted and feel unproductive because of many circumstances like long hours of commute eat a lot of their time, endangering their work-life balance. These are a few of our realizations why we come up with putting Filipino Virtual Assistance. Because we know how difficult it is to work far from our family, we want to empower Filipino families, one freelancer at a time. We want to provide our graduates an avenue to earn dollars at their homes' comfort, without the hassle of traffic, toxicity of the environment, and an excellent opportunity for those who never got the chance to go to College.

2. Start an iot startup ($180K/year)

Craig Rabin from Seattle, Washington, USA started The Airhook over 6 years ago, a IoT startup.

  • Revenue: $15,000/ month
  • Founders: 1
  • Employees: 1
  • Location: Seattle, Washington, USA

The idea for The Airhook came from a flight I was taking, and I was wearing a sport coat for a meeting I was to attend after landing.

I asked the flight attendant if they had a place to hang it… it was full. I thought about putting my coat in the overhead bin but didn’t want it to get wrinkled. So, I wore my coat and was incredibly uncomfortable the entire flight. At some point as I was staring forward, I began to think I could create a hook for the tray table to hang my coat on. Nothing special, just a simple hook that worked with the tray table closed.

And for some real world inspiration, give Sylvestre Dupont's story on creating Parseur a read:

Hi there! My name is Sylvestre Dupont and I’m the co-founder of Parseur, a data extraction tool. My official title is CEO, while my co-founder Sylvain is the CTO. We're only a 3-person company, so those titles might be a little over the top though. I’m currently based in the lovely island of Mauritius, in the Indian Ocean, and Sylvain is located in Grenoble, the capital of the French Alps.

Launched in 2017, Parseur’s revenue has grown to over $40k per month. We’re 100 percent bootstrapped, with no outside investment.
