i would want to start my own business. its not like i have a really big amount to start one, but i wouldn't mind starting a small one as of the moment. the problem is that i'm not sure what kind of business to put up. i don't know which ones would really work. your suggestions could help me though, i might get something from them.

I've always wanted to start my own business and a few days ago, I found something that didn't cost me a dime to start. I'll be happy to let you know about it, but only if you are interested in learning about it.

I am interested as well and I think it might be worth posting a response or discussion as it seems a lot of people are interested.

I think it's important to first know yourself and your passions. Starting a business means you'll need to put a lot of time into it and if you start doing something you're not passionate about, you'll be no better off that with a regular 8 hour job... I've quit my last job 4 months ago to take the time and decide what I really want to do, and in about a month I woke up with the idea of an online magazine about handmade. I'm from Romania and handmade is just getting popular, there was a market for it and no competition so I guess I got lucky. But still, give yourself some time to find out what you like before you invest in anything...

Deciding the kind of business you will do is a very important part in starting a business. I cannot tell you what specific business to do coz it depends on your own interest. Try working on things that you enjoy so you wont get burned out when you are already there. I am currently into fashion accessories and fragrance business. I do it part-time coz I have a full-time job. I sell the items online and also in our community. I have some dealers who help selling the items. Hope you can decide on what business to do. The business world is very exciting and there are a lot of opportunities out there.

Have you considered Network Marketing? You start your own business as an independent contractor, there are some few rules to consider, from the company that you sign the contract with, and aside from that, how you work is completely up to you. http://www.fortunenow.com/public/images/areyouwalkingbrochure.pdf, this 21 page brochure gives a brief explanations of the system. I work with Mentoring For Free, and we offer free training to anyone interested or involved in MLM, http://www.mlmguidance.info. With Appreciation.
