The American Dream often includes being your own boss. If you can get your significant other on board, your business can take on a new life very quickly, because there are two of you working toward the same goals. You get encouragement and support for your business ideas. Wondering where to get started?

Here are nine business ideas that you and your partner could turn into full-fledged businesses.

House flipping

Buy a distressed home. Fix it up. Sell it at a profit. If you and your partner enjoy construction and home décor, this might be a good fit.   

Blogging

It can seem as if the internet is flooded with blogs, but if you can find a great idea for a blog, it’s a great way to increase your income. Don’t expect to build a following overnight. It takes time. But most good business ideas will take hard work and dedication.   

E-commerce

Craft projects can help you make money on the side. Use the retail sites online to offer your product.   

Garden consulting

If you or your partner is a master gardener, be a consultant for people who want a prettier landscape without a landscaper.   

Pet sitting

It can be difficult for pet owners to leave their little four-legged friends with a boarding facility. Offer pet services for a small fee.   

House cleaning

When you work with a partner, it takes half the time to clean. Provide deep cleaning services to busy families and make money as a team.   

Fitness training

Everyone wants to get fit. You can always work in a gym but finding a niche can help you get clients that might not ever get into the gym.
