I am really tired of just having a JOB. I want my own business... Have you ever wanted to start your own business? If so what type of business would you start and how would you go about getting it off the ground?

I am studying and practicing in order to become a full-time Internet Marketer. My wife is pregnant, so I'd like to work from my home in order to take care of her and my baby, as well as my beautiful 10 years old girl.

Actually its a never ending question. one who is in job dreams of doing own business or more impotantly to be their own boss and one who is in business dreams of a good lucrative job and devoid of any business tensions and losses. Although I am in share market business I have a dream of starting import export business as we have many items which is very cheap and good here but it costs very much in the west. But it needs big capital as the opposite party doesnt deal in small quantities. and you also need your business customers as trustworthy. Anyway I hope I'll be able to start this at some point of time.

I am always dreaming of owning a business. But the big problem is that I don't have the capital. My earnings is just enough for my family. And only little is left sometimes I am deficit. Our situation is difficult. We just need to spend our basic needs. No more money for luxury and for savings so I can start a business. My dream business is to own a farm with vegetables, fruits and flowers. I would also add some poultry and livestock into my farm. Then I would make a grocery store and the vegetables, fruits, flowers and meats will come from my farm. And also I will have a nice restaurant.

yes, i have always wanted to start my own business but still don't know what is feasible here in our place and also the capital to start the business is my other concern. i have once started a computer rental business but it wasn't taken cared of since i was still at my job and it was taking up my time so i have to close it down since it wasn't earning

Yes. I'm planning to franchise a lottery outlet. It needs little space, 1 computer and 1 employee. it yields 2.5k (my country's current) every day, with employee salary and rent already deducted. However the franchise fee is quite heavy on the wallet. so i'm still saving up for it.

I have always dreamt of it but never had neither courage nor inicial capital needed to do it. Besides, I always thought that I would be very stressed having to worry about my own business and never would be able to have vacations hehehehe

Sure! I have wanted to start my own business since I was 33 years old. But I don't have much fund to start it. If I had much fund I would open an English and I.T center. Find a good place with parking vehicles. Welcome to all students to my school on every level.

I would love to start my own business. I love making crafts and such, so my ideal business would be a craft store. I would love to sell supplies as well as pre-made crafts on consignment. Unfortunately this type of business requires a lot of capitol up front as you would have to have a lot of inventory on hand. So for now, I make home-made quilts and sell them for a little bit of profit.
