A worm business is an excellent way to create an income from home. In times where the living expenses are increasing much faster than the income, we all have to find ways to make ends meet.
Yes we can reduce our spending, but there is only so much one can do to reduce the costs. Many concerned people have already thrown overboard a lot of hobbies and activities they used to enjoy in previous times but still the bills seem to be coming in like an endless stream.
Many households are basically running on survival mode for the last 5 to 10 days of every month because there is no more money left and they worry how to make it to the next pay day.
Others don't even have a job or recently lost their means of income and it seems like a miracle that they and their families are surviving.
With better paying jobs not being accessible for many what can be done to generate some extra cash?
I have been there about 17 years ago and felt as if I where between a rock and a hard place! As it seemed impossible to find the kind of work I was qualified for I decided to start my own business. After all if I where my own boss it was just up to me to make my home business opportunity work.
There are a lot of people making money from home these days but my problem was that I had only a small budget or should I say no budget to speak off to invest into my future.
I researched many home business opportunities but many of them either didn't strike my interest or the start up costs where just to high for me.
Then one day I learned about the possibility of making money with earthworms. I researched the topic of worm farming for a while and was quickly convinced that a worm business would be the answer I was looking for.
I liked the idea of a green business and the start up costs for my backyard worm farm where extremely low.
is the result of my personal experiences of many years as a commercial worm farmer.
I got my first batch of compost worms in 1997 and started my first worm business "Global Worming" in 1998. Although already a multimillion dollar industry, worm farming is still a niche market and the demand for worms is still outstripping the supply till this day.
I was working from home and started my worm business from scratch. I started with just one worm bin initially and consistently multiplied my worm herd in my backyard.
It took less than 2 month before I started to make some money. Not a lot initially but my worms where breeding like crazy and there where a lot of keen fisherman and gardeners who wanted worms to support their hobbies.
Within a year I had developed my own range of worm farms and was selling worms, worm castings and worm tea to private customers as well as to retail outlets.
I've worked in many different companies but I must say that compost worms are by far the least demanding colleges or employees I have ever had :-). They don't moan, don't demand a salary, work 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and are happy if i just supply them with some organic waste and keep their home moist and cool.
I've run a worm business for more than 15 years and it has been my only source of income for a long, long time now.
In 2013 I decided to write down all I had learned during this process and published my book "How to start a profitable worm business on a shoestring budget" I believe the book with its detailed step by step descriptions will enable you to start your own worm business and will help you to make money from home.
Once you have worked through the book you should be able to:
If you are looking for an affordable way to generate extra income from your home or backyard than worm farming can be a great solution for you! The industry is still growing and my book will teach you all you need to know to get your profitable business of the ground.
