Owning a company is a visionary dream but their is no harm in dreaming to own one of the famous company. For myself I dream of purchasing the food chain and Technology giant like Microsoft, McDonald and Coca cola company. I think both company would hardly suffer from the effect of recession and would even reach its peak of success in the future. Thinking of more innovative high end technology and good food offering, good customer services and even greatest marketing strategy against its competitors as the demand of the markets grows catering to all ages. The products they offer would still be famous in the future and being an owner is a great feeling. It also entails a lot of responsibility and being successful depending on the good management leadership style of the company and the workforce itself. I would like to know if you are going to buy a company? What is the name of the company? Why do you choose that company? How would you feel being the owner of multi-billion company?

Owning a company is also a dream. I know that it is a big challenge to own a company. It is easy to work with a company rather than owning it. If I am given an option to own a company, I will go choose hotel industry. I wil first go for a resturant and develop it into a hotel and later I join with tourism agencies and related companies to add more tourist packages.

If I were to ever have the money to buy any company, I would like to have one like Amazon.com. They sell everything and anything and everyone knows about them. If not Amazon, then maybe one of the giant bookstore chains like Barnes and Noble or Borders but Amazon would be best just because they sell much more than books.

That is the best for internet enthusiast who prepare to purchase their needs through internet shopping. But, it could not reach the other parts of the world where technology and access to the internet is limited. having a bookstore is also great business and especially if you also includes e-books.

Dear friend, Its a great question but in need of a responsible answer.. If I had that much power and wealth, I will buy the company that reaches the top in fortune 500. I see Wal-mart hits the list always in place 1 or 2. Now at present Exxon Mobil tops the list. But I would like to buy Wal-Mart because I have heard that it was a great store with a wide range of products. But I don't have one in my country. I love to buy it and make the head-quarters in my country and promote in most of the cities as much as I could. As per my feeling as a multi-billionaire, I don't want to have much. Anyway I am going to eat 3 or 4 times a day and sleep at night with peace. Thats what I want even I am a poor man or a rich man. And the most important thing I will strive the best for the name to be continually in the top of fortune 500 list.... Great and fantastic discussion I have come across in the last month... Cheers... Have a blessed day always...

Hi, Philip, That is a wonderful company and it is good being the owner to put the main mother branch in your own country. Being the pioneer in the company of your choice. It would greatly benefits your country citing the business opportunities are the doorways to help your countrymen being employed and also help in the government revenue taxes..Yap, being a billionaire/millionaire feeling is no difference if you stick with simplicity. But, no matter how simple you are..you would still be vulnerable to a lot of challenges which any ordinary men unmatched to rise above the rest!!

It would be a publishing company because I really dreamed to publish books, I want to put up my own magazine publishing too especially about lifestyle and travel magazines. I love all these stuff and I am dreaming to have my own publishing house someday. I dreamed also to put up my own clothing company in the future because I loved designing dresses.

Your choices of companies really depend on your own interest and not influenced by other people. This match your personality and any concepts which would like to applied to your future business would be a success knowing first the current and future demand of your target market, identifying potential clients and endorsing products which could be available to all ages and genders is a must in order to be successful in your business..

I think i'd like to be the owner of a company dealing in wind energy or solar energy as i believe after these fossil fuels are depleted it is these forms of energy that we'll be dependent on.All the companies you have mentioned are great companies and have attained their peak i believe it is new technology which will enable new entrepreneurs to scale new heights in future.

Your choice of company have to deal with the environmental issues and as a alternatives sources of energy which also good. When the fuel/oil reserves reach its saturation the things you mention may be used but I think it is already launched in other countries. They also becomes successful which a big help to any country who have energy crisis problem to utilize the concept and let the people benefits from it..

of course, I see food every time and they are available in sidewalks, in small stalls and in shopping malls where they are different fast food chains catering to hungry souls for a quick food ready to chow and even to eat on the go..as long as you properly identify all genders as your target markets, the food you offer should be nutritious, delicious and one things unforgettable..

hi neelia! just like the others here, i will choose to buy a food related business company! coz food is something that everybody needs, and something that is always wanted... but of course selection of what company is also important...coz we also know that there are also some food companies that closes their business due to some loss... for me, i will choose to Jollibee! hehe since i am here in our country, i am just amazed with the success of this food chain! huh! i think, anywhere you put Jollibee, it will always be successful! haha and maybe some real estate company...
• Philippines
11 Oct 09
yeah, with food industry you would never go wrong as most people like to eat the having a good franchise food company is a good choice. Jollibee is a proud Filipino food chain and too agree they are been a hit especially to children and by franchising it one could guarantee that it could bring profits and do service to the people by selling only quality food item..
• Philippines
12 Oct 09
Yeah, Jollibee captures the Filipino taste such as in their own spaghetti version a mixture of sweetness and not the usual sour tastes in other spaghetti. especially the chicken joy is also a hit not only to children but to adults as well.. franchising is very expensive and require a bigger capital but it is a sure boost that earning is good once the operation start.. yeah, that right knowing the 5m's of management strategy, having money(capital) identifying the markets, materials, manpower and maintenance..

companies - Companies are here to stay and offers innovative products and good services would be maintain, aside from earning, paying taxes to the government and sharing some of its revenues in helping their choice of charities.
Computer business would still be the best trends in the market and would never go wrong with it as it is capable of expansion, creating more advanced technology and softwares producer. Being the new McDonald management would think of better way to makes the products stay excellent and caters to all markets all over the world and being the well known chain, franchises would be available to anyone who have enough capital. Thus earning would not always be the first priority as well as sharing the revenues with the government and maintaining the vision mission statement of expanding the business in other countries and helping the supported charities endorsed by the company would also remain,sharing their blessing from the earning produces with the unfortunate people..Marketing the products and improving it's qualities would be the focus of serving only authentic beef and some suggestion from others customers would be given enough attention and care..

Good idea ,I mean technology and food definitely cant fail so I think you could even think of purchasing the stocks.Like you I would purchase microsoft too in teh technology division because it has a monoploy in the market and almost alll computers now use microsoft products.Consequently you would be getting revenue from existing users as well as new users and also money from persons who want upgrades .Good discussion

Hi ronnyb, In terms of modern technology most could never go wrong as technology is very fast paced developing in a matter of months and so on, another invention proceeds and thus the the unending newest styles, gadgets, new products launches enhanced markets profitability targeting majority of different clients. Also, food businesses is prevalent with the right identification of products, fair pricing, quality which could be offers to different clients could also be a good precursor for successful investment.

If I could own any company that I wanted to in the whole world, I think I would like to own some kind of entertainment company. I'm not sure I would want to go as far as a company like Walt Disney, because there are so many different varieties in their company. Although, I do like the idea of owning an amusement park. Perhaps, I could own the amusement park Cedar Point. I am sure that they have struggled with these economic times as well, but most companies have. I don't really know that much about running an amusement park, or any type of entertainment company as far as that goes. I did do one promotion with a friend for a concert, but that was only a one time deal. I just think it would be neat to own an amusement park because of all of the fun and the rides. However, I do know that there is a lot more to it, than just fun and games. LOL

Hi kykidd, owning an amusement parks especially the famous Walt Disney is an honor to become a co-owner as many countries have still no version of it and it would be great to establish it in other countries who have less amusement parks. i am very sure it would be a hit not only to children but also to adults. A good sources of income and entertainment in one..Thanks for responding.

i would like to buy the water and light company. they are the most important types of business and usually it never get stale with the demand from consumer. it is now a need not just a want.
• Philippines
26 Sep 09
Yeah, they are good kinds of businesses as utilities company will always be a part of our life and hard to survives without those amenities. in today world electricity is a need and slight interruption cause a lot of business transaction to fails. When their is an electrical failures the businesses who depend on computer could suffer a tremendous lost of income in one day and worst if the brown out/black out lasts for days. As a result many business may opt to buy their own generators to avoid losses.

It would be a huge to dream to be able to make such a purchase as a company and if I had the means I would opt for a veterinary hospital. I would like to open a pet hospital, hire the adequate staff of course and given that to do such a thing I would already be very wealthy I would ensure that the treatment for the animals would be of minimal cost for pet owners who cannot afford vet care. I would be happy to run at no profit and to just cover running costs and wages because if I was already very rich I would not need the income. I have not come up for a name; I may have to get back to you on that one... No harm to dream...

That is a nice plan and I do hope it would come true one of this day. Your choice is an indicative of your personality, being an animal lover. Surely this is a great opportunity, animals too.. deserve to be taken care of just like people need treatment and medicines when they get old...You are right as you already rich you no need to compensate yourself with a lot of earning but fulfilling spiritually and fo being sounds like a missionary with a mission to take care of the animals is like giving voice to them for their own rights to be take care of and not being neglected....

The company that I would want to purchase is AMD. Why is because at this time I believe that the company is moving in the wrong direction. It is my belief that the company needs to first shutdown the ATI video card business. Why because ATI will never be as good or better then NVIDIA. They will and always be the leader and innovader of video technologhy. The second large change I would design a new company goal by down sizing company properties and then putting that income towards the R&D of a new CPU that would serpass all technology by leaps and bounts.
• Philippines

That is the closest competitor of Intel, AMD is quite good in gaming and in animation. They have a sort of problem in their videos graphic cards but as long as it is upgradeable. The company could expand its business and hopefully their CPU's microchip would not burnt easily, causing a lot of repairs expenses.

I also want a piece of share in Microsoft so I guess I'll just buy it (whoa, I said buy it just like that~~~) Apart from Microsoft, Amazon is a good idea too. They have been selling stuffs online for years and still standing strong. As for franchise, I want KFC and for soft drink company it's definitely Pepsi.

Microsoft is the monster and leading companies, the inventor and innovator of freshly produces softwares which contributes a lot for the current and future growth of advanced technology because of the genius brains of the people who make up Microsoft as a giant company for all times...I also like in my own point of view companies who also have a mission statement in their company and sharing their earning to build a foundation helping the needy,providing jobs, education and health care..
