FINDING THE PERFECT BUSINESS IDEA
You may have heard that if you can just find something you love, the money will come. Well, that's kind of true. You definitely want to pick something you enjoy, but you also have to find something that has a market of paying customers. Remember something of your friends at say that I think is right on: "There is a big difference between doing the technical work of a business and running a business that does that work." If you enjoy the work, gets a job doing it. However, if you are going to be successful at running a business, you won't be able to do much of the technical work.
So how do you start your search? If you are starting from scratch, resources needs to be consider. You may also want to look into buying a franchise or business opportunity. Here are three sources to get you started:
• Low-Investment Franchises: Most of these cost less than Rs.60,000, and some even cost less than Rs.35,000.
• Entrepreneur's Guide To Franchising: This guide helps you understand the differences between franchises and business opportunities, as well as how to do your due diligence when shopping for franchises.
• How to Research a Business Opportunity: Business opportunities are not as heavily regulated as franchises, and they don't offer as much of a "business in a box" as a franchise does, but they can be a great place to start, and are considerably more defined than starting from scratch.
