Despite our roller-coaster economy, there has never been a better time to start your own business. Your job might have been rendered obsolete by outsourcing and you might never be able to penetrate the current job market with any degree of success. Why not start your own business? Make a list of things you love to do. Make another list of skills and talents you have. What do you love? What are you good at? Where the two lists intersect, you will find your perfect opportunity. For example, are you a good people person? Love to get involved with people? Then, are you detailed oriented? Your perfect job might be some type of counselor, or reunion planner. Make your lists and start putting together your small biz ideas.
