For many months, I've been thinking of a business to start but until now nothing has been started. I've thought of putting up a garage sale/second hand buy and sell business since our house has a wide backyard but it's a little bit far from the city and I have few neighbors. Please advise

First, irene, I would like to give you a tip of the hat for being very enterprising and thinking of a way to start your own business, especially considering that not many people have the guts and will to even consider the idea of putting up their own business. If you're still apprehensive, which is pretty understandable, because in any business, risk is always involved, I suggest that you weigh the pros and cons of starting your backyard business. If you've already considered all the factors involved and you've determined that starting your own buy and sell would yield more benefits than detriments, I feel that not even distance could stop you from finally starting your business venture. Whatever you decide, though, good luck! Stay positive and Happy myLotting!

Buying and selling in your backyard will not fetch you much as there are very few people around your backyard, I sugget you to start a small scale industry, like candle or toy making, or doing job work for neigbhbouring facories by using mini machines.
