Making money is important. Starting your own business is a good way to achieve that, but on the other hand starting your own business can lead to disaster.
Therefore I decided to make this list with couple of ideas which (in my opinion) can't fail.
So here it goes!
1. Food business
People have to eat. Even if they are poor and don't have any extra money they will have money for food. That is one of the basics of life. So if you want to have a surefire business sell food. Now there are many subniches to consider. Selling luxury food will have its market but I believe you should focus on quantity and provide affordable food to the mass market. You will always have customers!
2. Clothing store
Clothing is not life essential but today it is a social norm for people to wear clothes. So selling clothes is a business that people will always need. Same as with food every article of clothing will find its market but you have to stay on top of the trends and observe the customer behavior. Keep in touch with whats hip, watch out for the prices, discounts etc. and you should be doing just fine.
3. Financial consultancy
There are many way how this can pay off. People with lots of money always look for somebody who can advise them in order to increase their money. Poorer people, on the other hand, might need help dealing with all their costs and still saving some money. Of course you will have to have some knowledge in this field and not just scamming people if you are looking for a long-term profit.
Internet is the future. Internet is now. More and more business move to online. Webshops with practically every possible commodity are appearing throughout the web. It is not too late to jump on the train. You can profit in many ways. Blogging, web development, SEO, affiliate marketing, webshop - take your pick!
There is not business like show business! That phrase has never been more true than today. Today theoretically everyone can make it big in show business. People want entertainment so why not give it to them? You can use online services like Youtube to promote your singing/dancing/standup comedy or whatever and you will get million of views in practically no time! The big question is - are you up to it?
