https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eEPPMJ0-H04

00:00:00
Hey guys welcome to silicon valley girl today is one of my traditional topics one of
00:00:05
my favorite topics we're going to talk about small business ideas for 2021. so if you're interested
00:00:11
in starting something that people really need continue watching this video up to the
00:00:15
very end i'm gonna pour some really i think they're really great i'm gonna pour some great ideas on you
00:00:21
guys but before you continue watching like this video and if you're not yet subscribed this channel
00:00:26
hit the red subscribe button below business idea number one organic vending machines whenever i
00:00:33
arrive at a hotel or a motel or whatever when i see a vending machine
00:00:38
it's normally coca-cola some unhealthy snacks a lot of sugar and i wonder like should
00:00:44
i just skip this meal and wait for something that is healthy or should i have a cheat day an organic
00:00:52
vending machine business would be a great business for places where people tend to care more
00:00:57
about their health and where they watch what they eat in 2019 the vending machine market in the united states was
00:01:05
over 6 000 million dollars and is projected to be over 7 000 million dollars by 2026 so this
00:01:12
market is definitely growing this business is more suitable for high traffic areas of the city and maybe
00:01:18
for a little richer population the next business idea would provide a solution
00:01:23
for parents in california and some other parts of the us where you are required to put your child
00:01:29
in a car seat so the problem is whenever we want to travel by taxi
00:01:34
i either need to carry my child's car seat but if we are flying from abroad we're coming to an airport like this is
00:01:41
something that is going to happen to us very soon like i'm a little confused our car is in
00:01:46
a parking in our friend's house and we're going to arrive at the airport and we would need
00:01:51
to somehow get back home and i didn't want to rent a car but it looks like the only
00:01:56
solution for us is to either rent a car or i found this one service one
00:02:00
company in san francisco that provides taxis with car seats because if you just order uber or
00:02:06
lyft yes you can write a comment that i need a car seat i have a baby but it doesn't necessarily mean that the driver
00:02:12
that would arrive will have this car seat and we had this situation couple times when the driver
00:02:17
arrived and he realized oh my god your baby's too small for my car seat and he just canceled the order
00:02:22
and when you arrive from a transatlantic flight you don't want someone to cancel on you you want
00:02:27
just to you know sit down in your car and go straight home so my solution here is i'm either asking
00:02:33
my friend to bring a car to to the airport i'm gonna rely on that small company
00:02:38
i'm not even sure it's working right now but you know we need more businesses like that we need
00:02:43
taxes for children we need taxes with car seats and by the way if you start getting more and more clients in some
00:02:49
areas there is a good potential to be acquired by a bigger company by a bigger player
00:02:55
like uber or lyft and another idea is driver for your car and again yes i know it exists i know you can find a
00:03:02
driver would cost you hundreds and hundreds of bucks but the problem is there is no the
00:03:07
service that makes it available for normal people like again
00:03:11
in russia where i come from it is really really easy to find a driver for your car because for example you went to a
00:03:17
restaurant you had a couple drinks you're no longer allowed to drive
00:03:21
and some people would break the rule and they would just start driving some people would grab a taxi and then
00:03:26
they would have to return the next day to pick up their car but instead in russia there is a service where you can
00:03:33
just call and ask the driver to come and drive your car with you
00:03:37
back home again this is amazing i haven't heard about it in the us i'm pretty sure it exists in some parts
00:03:43
but it's not that widespread and we need more of it the next service that i would personally use
00:03:48
i would call it find a doctor service find a doctor business so the problem with insurance is it works with a lot of
00:03:55
doctors like for example i need to find a pediatrician and there are so many dogs
00:04:00
in the area for example if i'm in san francisco there are 200 pediatricians and if i go and yelp maybe 20 or 30 of
00:04:07
them have five stars and you start calling them and they're either on a lunch break or nobody picks
00:04:12
up and when i looked for a doctor for myself it took me
00:04:16
five hours to find the right doctor because when i called the office they would tell me
00:04:20
oh you know they're fully booked oh you know they're not accepting new patients oh do you know that the next available
00:04:25
appointment is in 20 2064. something like that i would really use a service where call
00:04:32
you and ask you hey guys i need this doctor this is my problem this is my insurance this is how
00:04:38
far i want this doctor to be from my home and this is the minimum rating that i'm
00:04:42
looking for could you please find me that doctor who would be available to see me within the next two
00:04:48
weeks that would be awesome that would save so much time by the way this problem
00:04:53
made me hire a personal assistant a virtual personal assistant because i just couldn't work have a baby
00:05:01
have a family and spend five hours per day looking for the right doctor for my
00:05:06
family because we were new to the area and it took some time to find the right people talking about the right people
00:05:12
talking about great connections i really think that a welcome to the usa service
00:05:18
something like that would be helpful for immigrants for workers from other countries from people
00:05:24
who arrive to the us to become a citizen become a permanent resident
00:05:29
there are thousands and thousands of people like that every single year 2020 was a little different but the
00:05:35
trend has been there for decades and it's going to continue so the problem is when you arrive in the
00:05:40
u.s in other countries you don't really have a cpa like in a lot of countries you just file your taxes automatically
00:05:47
and if you have a business in the u.s if you have something going on in your previous country then you need a cpa
00:05:53
in other countries it's not really typical to create a living trust and i'm reading a lot of books i'm
00:05:58
talking to a lot of people and they say that the best thing you can do is establish a living trust
00:06:02
the day you start a company or the day you start making money and then you need doctors you need to
00:06:07
rent a car if you don't have a social security it's really really hard to rent an
00:06:12
apartment and i've seen some specialists doing really well in this niche they're called
00:06:16
like welcome to the usa specialist they would meet and greet you and then they would provide the
00:06:20
necessary contacts cpas doctors uh they would help you rent an apartment something like that
00:06:26
for your language if you're bilingual something like that even in english would be in really
00:06:32
really high demand because when people come to a new country especially usa which is very different
00:06:38
from other countries like even compared to europe even compared to russia you really need
00:06:42
this trusted person in a country to help you with everything the next idea
00:06:46
is also connected to travel and i saw this kind of business first in russia it is called
00:06:53
food delivery to the airplane or to the train so when you're traveling like we know
00:06:58
there are five hour flights six hour flights in the u.s where they don't serve you food they give you like a
00:07:03
pack of chips and that's it you really need to eat when you fly and sometimes you just can't prepare the meal yes i
00:07:09
take eggs with me i take stuff with me but sometimes i'm in a rush and then i
00:07:13
arrive at the airport and in some airports everything is closed right now in some airports you only
00:07:18
have unhealthy stuff that you don't want to eat and yes there are some services that would help you order from
00:07:24
airport restaurants and deliver that to your gate but what i'm talking about here is that
00:07:28
you prepare meals and deliver them to the airport for people healthy in-flight meals or you deliver
00:07:34
them to the train station half an hour before the train parts or two hours prior to the flight
00:07:39
and i want you to be a specialist in it i want you to prepare food that would be edible when it's cold that will last for
00:07:46
three four or five hours that will be packed in a way that there will be no problems
00:07:50
with the tsa and security checkpoints but again in russia a lot of my friends use this
00:07:55
and healthy food delivery to their train to the airplane is a great
00:08:00
great service another cool business idea it is kind of starting in the us one of my silicon
00:08:07
valley friends has already started this in new york and they're expanding to san francisco
00:08:11
it is huge in russia it is huge in countries like india and china this is where you get food
00:08:19
delivered within 15 minutes it's not like your instacart it's not amazon whole foods
00:08:25
delivery it doesn't take hours the way this business works is that people rent an apartment
00:08:30
or they rent like a small storage space they fill the storage space with products that are in really high
00:08:36
demand all the time you know milk chips beer toilet paper sugar whatever they create an app or you
00:08:45
can create a website where you can order everything online and because they only serve the area 15
00:08:51
minute walk or 15 minute bike ride from the storage they are able to deliver things within 15 minutes
00:08:58
you can start locally if you have like a busy area where you live and then you can expand i think this is
00:09:03
the future of delivery like amazon has won the market because their delivery times were like
00:09:09
one day and was free and free returns and it was similar to other online shopping
00:09:15
websites but the service is everything these days and if you're able to deliver things that people need right now in 15
00:09:22
minutes this is a game changer people are stuck with you they're not gonna switch to instacart they're not gonna
00:09:27
switch to amazon because 15 minutes it's just a completely different mindset you know you're cooking something oh my
00:09:32
god i don't have spaghetti anymore 15 minutes and they're at your door another
00:09:37
business idea is something that i'm a huge fan of is to start a youtube channel
00:09:42
in the area of your expertise i'm really fond of people who are professionals in some area and who are producing videos
00:09:48
about it like i've started my youtube channel talking about toefl and gmat
00:09:52
and i took them myself i have a three million youtube channel where i talk about the english language because this
00:09:57
is my passion and i've been learning it since seven years and i took a lot of tests i won some
00:10:02
competitions like huge national competitions in english this is something that makes a great
00:10:07
income first of all you get paid by youtube by adsense
00:10:11
second you can have partnerships where companies pay you to advertise their products
00:10:15
third you have affiliate links or you produce your own products like courses or manuals
00:10:20
or you create a physical product so the opportunity here is amazing and what i see in the well this is my
00:10:27
vision for the future i see that in the next five or ten years almost everyone would have their youtube
00:10:32
channel or a social media outlet where they post regularly but the problem is because there would
00:10:37
be more and more influencers everyone would kind of be a micro influencer because people can't just
00:10:42
follow everyone but now is still a great time to start i see a lot of creators on the rise i see
00:10:47
a lot of new ideas flowing around youtube and if you want to start in 2021 the link to my course
00:10:52
will be below there i just gathered my experience of starting three youtube channels two of
00:10:57
them have over a million followers and the third channel you're watching right now
00:11:01
they are on completely different topics but i think the reason why all of them perform well is because i
00:11:08
kind of attract youtube algorithm so there are some rules that you can follow to create content and the algorithm
00:11:14
would pick it up and would help you make a whole business out of it the link will be below
00:11:19
the next idea again personal chef and you might tell me in comments below marina but of course rich people have
00:11:25
personal chefs i'm talking about being a personal chef for again normal people you don't have
00:11:30
to be a culinary artist you don't have to throw dinners for 12 people i'm talking about day to day
00:11:35
cooking more and more people are staying at home more and more people are working from
00:11:39
home and when you're working from home and when your kid is at home it's really
00:11:43
really hot it's a lot harder than working from the office when your kid is with someone and cooking is like another
00:11:48
task that would take some time away from you i started doing this in the u.s i just found a russian girl
00:11:54
who liked to cook and i started paying her by hour and she would come and she would cook for us for five or
00:11:59
six hours and she would cook enough food that would last us for three to four days maybe a week because
00:12:05
sometimes she did frozen food you can start as a one person business you just create a website
00:12:10
you advertise around your area you give people leaflets with menus that you can provide and say
00:12:15
hey i can cook for you every monday from 1 to 5 p.m you choose from the menu that i've provided
00:12:21
and then you have all the recipes you come you can also create an additional service where you buy all the products i
00:12:27
would use the service 100 and i know a lot of moms and professionals who care about what they eat
00:12:32
who really love home-cooked food but they just don't have time for it and they're willing to pay extra cash
00:12:37
for someone to come and cook for them the next idea is a little more complicated from the ones that i
00:12:42
mentioned before just because it is a small business idea but it requires some knowledge and it
00:12:47
requires some work before you can actually start this is called direct access testing and what i mean by that
00:12:53
is again something i've seen in other countries when you want to draw blood and check
00:12:57
your vitamin d levels iron levels i don't know whatever i i just like to check things because i take a lot of
00:13:03
supplements and yes i have a doctor but instead of calling her every time
00:13:07
and asking her for a lab request i just do that myself every three months because i want to track my health and
00:13:14
for example again in russia and some other countries you can just come to a private lab and say hey i need this this
00:13:20
this and this they would run a test on you they would give you the results that's
00:13:24
it i know there are some issues with it i know that sometimes you can get too scared or disregard a
00:13:31
result that should have been important and it's important to consult with your doctor
00:13:35
but if you're doing this for the 20th time in your life if you're just checking
00:13:39
your vitamin d level i'm pretty sure you can do that by yourself and a lot of people are
00:13:44
biohacking these days taking supplements and it's a lot worse to take supplements without knowing your current vitamin
00:13:50
level than just testing it regularly and adjusting the doses with your doctor
00:13:55
so some states in the us prohibit those kind of testing but 37 states allow that and again there
00:14:02
are some issues there are some labs i know there is like a big website where you can order a test
00:14:07
online and then you go to either lab corp or another big lab and they run a test on you
00:14:12
but the problem with that is that the test that you can order without a doctor's prescription
00:14:17
the list is really really limited and it wasn't enough for me for example in california i had to find the doctor
00:14:23
you know explain what i need get this lab request and again go to the lab so it's a little complicated when you
00:14:31
have labs available to people because when you understand the audience that needs
00:14:35
that kind of testing like biohackers or people who take a lot of supplements you can have a doctor on site and that
00:14:41
solves a lot of legal problems again i'm not a specialist here i'm just talking about
00:14:44
how other labs work in other countries you need to research what's going on in your state
00:14:50
but again i see those businesses exploding in a lot of countries like russia has
00:14:56
labs everywhere people line up to see what's happening with their bodies so
00:15:01
something to explore here the next service that i really really need and everything is coming from my
00:15:07
problems i love all the ideas that i mentioned in this video and if i had passion for them i would
00:15:13
have started them by myself but i have passion for some other things i have passion for youtube
00:15:18
i have passion for languages so i'm doing what i'm passionate about but if you're passionate for ideas that are
00:15:23
mentioned here go ahead try you know we only live once and
00:15:27
we want to help people with these ideas so the next idea pack and move service where people not
00:15:33
just take your boxes and move you but where people help you with bagging like they take your makeup and they pack
00:15:39
everything they take care of everything so they just come to your apartment you say okay see you in the evening in the
00:15:44
new apartment and they move everything completely so you don't have to do any packing and
00:15:48
again i've seen some services like that they are not available everywhere
00:15:52
not in every single state in san francisco i've seen maybe a couple and there is a lot of
00:15:58
demand right now people are moving out of san francisco people are moving to towns people a lot of my
00:16:04
friends move to l.a and this is something they would really use because packing for me when we moved
00:16:09
out of our san francisco apartment it took us a month
00:16:13
because we had so much stuff and i didn't want to do everything in two days we just started doing everything slowly
00:16:18
and gradually and we lived surrounded by boxes the next app
00:16:22
or service an uber for manicure and haircut something that will make it accessible
00:16:27
for people to invite a hair stylist or a manicure specialist to their homes you can either start it
00:16:34
as a specialist to yourself for example if your hairdresser you can start a website you know call me and i will come
00:16:40
to your house or you can create an app where people see available specialists right now who
00:16:45
are able to come on demand which means they're able to come in the next hour you know this on demand things again it
00:16:51
changes everything we are in the world where we want everything instantly we hate planning
00:16:57
so if you're building a service whatever i mentioned here it is a game changer if it's available on demand and i know when
00:17:03
you're starting small this is not actually doable but once you grow have this in your mind
00:17:09
on demand is really important and the faster you are the bigger chances that you will be able to beat bigger
00:17:14
corporations in your area and potentially either be acquired by a big corporation or compete with them on
00:17:20
the same level the market for the next idea is going to be huge it is huge right now well
00:17:25
it was 4.4 billion in 2018 and it's expected to be 63 billion by 2025
00:17:33
that is a little more than 10x and i'm talking about attention a drone videographer so first
00:17:39
of all if you know how to operate a drone if you know how to create a footage for
00:17:43
a drone you can be a filmmaker you can create movies you can create footage for ads
00:17:47
you can work with bloggers second you can film different events like weddings or business events third there
00:17:53
are a lot of industries that rely on images from drones like agriculture oil and gas civil
00:17:59
engineering industries and they really need specialists like you they need small
00:18:04
businesses that help hire such contractors then that would be drone delivery i'm
00:18:10
hoping in the next couple years and again we would need people who know how to operate drones so if you're
00:18:15
looking for a skill to hone in 2021 drone operating might be that skill smart home contractor
00:18:22
the market for these specialists for these businesses is gonna double in the next five years and what they teach us
00:18:27
in silicon valley always always look at markets that are scaling
00:18:31
what is a smart home contractor so for example somebody is building a house and they need to make it a smart home
00:18:37
you need cameras you need to operate the lights you need to operate the fridge like etc
00:18:42
etc etc somebody who would come take a look at your house take a look at your project and come up with a list of
00:18:48
possible solutions and create the whole system for you this is a smart home contractor
00:18:52
this could either be a specialist or you can create a business where you have certain specialists in your company and
00:18:59
you work as a contractor with either families or other businesses who are looking for a smart home another
00:19:05
business is already rising but i see it rising in bigger cities
00:19:09
and i see demand for it in smaller cities this business is called decluttering services or
00:19:14
professional organizers i'm pretty sure you saw those instagram pages where everything is perfectly organized now
00:19:21
where you see wardrobes where clothes are organized by callers and marie kondo who wrote a
00:19:26
bestseller about decluttering and she has her netflix show made this mainstream which is amazing
00:19:32
and there are some specialists that are following her methods some people come with their own solutions but a lot of
00:19:37
families a lot of people are working from home they're realizing how much stuff they
00:19:41
have and if they get rid of that stuff or organize it they would have an extra
00:19:46
room in their house so this is something that people are looking for right now thank you guys for
