Do you like the idea of being your own boss?
Want to be an entrepreneur but you are not sure where to start?
Then here are a few ideas I've picked up from
The first list shows that you can find a business opportunities in conventional businesses where there is a market opportunity because there is little competition.
The second and third show what is possible if you use your imagination and become creative.
I hope you are inspired to start your own business but please:
- Look carefully at the opportunity. Take a look at my blog Business Start-Ups: Preparing For The Dragons' Den for a structured way to assess a business opportunity.
- Start small and don't over-commit yourself. Try it, see what response you get. Things can often look good on paper but bomb in the real world because you have missed one critical element.
- Go for it. You'll never be a successful entrepreneur if you don't start having a go.
