What Business is a Good Starter Business?
Owning your own business is one of the many pleasures and inalienable rights that we have by being American citizens. We each have the right to pursue the American dream, in the way that we would like. Our entire civilization is based off of money, and the more of it you have, the better off you will be. This is why there are a couple of good money making ideas, 2 of which can be done anywhere, and the 3rd is more of a personal, local idea, but can be used anywhere. In all reality, choosing your own business should be personal, and should be something that you know well, or something that you love. If your good at taxes, and money, be an accountant or open your own H&R Block. If you love animals, try opening up your own boarding house, or become a vet, and open your own practice. Having your business be personal will help you in the long run, because you will be more willing to devote the time, energy, and resources to something that you love and understand, instead of throwing money at something you don't know, and may not like, and hope that it works.
Mobile Concession Business
Mobile Concession businesses are a great way to own your own company, with little investment, and have a large return on your money. You can find many different, good qaulity trailers, that are used, for fairly cheap (compared to the prices of buying or building your own brick-and-mortar restaurant). All you need is a little motivation a good cook, and a willingness to work. Add in someone that loves to travel, and you have a win-win. Mobile concession trailer businesses make their money traveling around the area (be it locally, state, region, or even nationally, and some internationally), attending various fairs, venues, concerts, and setting up where people are. This means that earning potential could be limitless, while investment is quite reasonable, and overhead is very small. This maximizes your earning potential, making owning your own mobile concession trailer business very lucrative.
The next type of business would be the Dot Com business. Now I'm not talking about anything specific, but open your own website firm. Manage, design, and build websites, if your good at that type of thing. There are many people out there that have absolutely no clue what they are doing when they want a website, and pay good money to have it custom built and managed for them. This takes a burden off of them, and puts money in your pocket. Since your your own boss, you can work your hours, and charge your rates. The better you are, the harder the website, the more you could make. To do this, you really need to know your stuff, and have a good background in programming, and other web skills, such as SEO, design, and more.
This one is more personal, because it deals with a sport that I love, and the fact that their is no place around here to play. Paintball is a fast growing action sport, that currently doesn't have many places to play. With minimal investments (land purchase), and good advertising, you could potentially make your own sports complex, that deals with the sports of your choice. With the push to be active, having healthy alternatives to the boring old gym is a great way to help supplement peoples fitness routines, and the earning potential is unlimited. Once big enough, consider holding tournaments, and large events, and invite professionals and stars of the sports.
