Where do great ideas come from to start a small business?
Ask yourself: What type of interests or skills do I have that could translate into running a small business?
Do you love holidays and gift giving? You could start a personal shopping service or launch a gift basket business. Do you love children? How about a day care center? Use your imagination. No one can tell you what business you can best start and run. That’s up to you. What types of businesses are needed in your community? Is there an errand service? Could your neighborhood use one? Are there businesses that would use your errand service? Are residential customers a possibility? Could you start a food delivery service, delivering meals-to-go from already established restaurants who don’t have the time or the inclination to deliver their own fare? You could start a business providing this service. Ask yourself: what is needed in this region and could I do it? Find a niche and fill it.
