Steal My Ideas
I seem to fall over business ideas nearly every day. Here are some of them.
Steal them!
Use them! Make Money!
Hire People!
Save the World!

1. Local Advertising
It is amazing how quickly the modern tech world has moved out the old ways of doing things. One of the challenges this has created is finding a local business to do something you need. And it also seems like everyone (even you) is considering starting a business. You might consider setting up a Neighbor to Neighbor advertising sheet, or perhaps even a website to promote your next door neighbor and other local businesses.

2. Shop Class
Set up schools or classes to teach people how to make things. You can show them how things work, and how to use tools, even power tools. Potential markets include: Young Singles, Newlyweds, Dads and Kids, Moms and Kids, the Unemployed, and the Underemployed, and the through-with-being-Employed.

3. Home Economics
Provide training in the lost arts: Cooking, Sewing, Household Budgets, even Grocery Shopping. There is a great big market out there from the College Driven, Mom Worked, We Just Eat Out generation. Everyone needs these skills, but they don't teach them in school anymore. For potential markets, see #2.

4. Set Up A Personal Assistants Stable
No one has enough time, and not everyone wants to run the business. Give capable people jobs. Help individuals, small businesses, and anyone else who just needs some assistance. Potential customers abound, and so do the workers. Provide the Help!

5. Check In Service

Too many people live alone. A service which checks in on them by phone, and if necessary in person. This can provide human contact and additional security, while allowing your clients their independence in their daily lives.

 A Quote to Consider

We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do.
