Kinda like molding ceramics, but much harder on your back. Buy ready-made molds of lots of different objects, oil the mold, fill with concrete, let it set up, dismantle the mold, clean and oil mold and set aside, let concrete cure, paint the item or just leave it as is, depending on what the customer wants. Make bird baths, urns, animals, outdoor chairs and tables or pretentious and uncomfortable indoor chairs and tables, statues, flower pots and planters, stepping stones, garden elves, gnomes, gargoyles and more. Sell to mortuaries, gift stores, florists, garden supply stores, etc. See public libraries for more information and related subjects.
