hypnotherapy, life coaching, personal fitness, massage, garden design, private surf lessons, bush walking guide , private ski instructor for back country trips , fishing guide (on someone else s boat or fresh water river guide due to drug testing etc)
a good flyfishing guide charge alot. get paid in cash. live near a river make a website, maybee few small ads in a local paper and a dedicated mobile phone that wrings through to a message service. Call em back , say your fully booked and cant recommend a guide as there all crap.
I think maybe you’re thinking to deeply about this.. it doesn’t really matter what business it is, if you claim income and pay taxes the govt will be happy.. if your a tutor they are not going to interview your students to see if they are actually paying you what you claim..
As I type this I realize I really don’t know what the fuck I’m talking about... basically just my experience and what was taught to me by old head growers... I could be wrong.. but I pay my taxes and workers come and do my audits with state dept of taxes.. all sorts of quarterly filing requirements.. shit blows but I do all that shit and pay the govt there 1/3 cut..
Having a legit business is a real time/$ suck..
If I had to do it over again I’d stay away from anything with employees.. it becomes much more paperwork and liability and less money laundering
