If given the choice to have your own business, what would it be?I would like a clothing store. You know the type complete with bags, shoes and clothes. I am a shopping addict, window shopping too. I am into what's in or hot whenever I can afford it. So I want to have my business which is within my likes as well.

I have a dream of starting my own hotel. I've also discussed with a friend. I know it's a long way to go, but think how cool that would be? I can live in the top floor, get a lot of money, start new hotels in other cities, earn from that hotels, etc... Mmmm:)

I would like to open a childrens bookshop. I would have storytimes after school for the children and in the morning for pre-schoolers. I would sell lovely new books and also 2nd hand ones for people on a budget.

Oh yeah, something like that big bookstore in that movie. We dont have one here in the Philippines yet but that will certainly be a good idea. Bookstore with daycare and a coffee section too for adult readers and book fanatics. :)

I would say a travel agency and a bakery. It's because I love travelling and crazy about bread. Whenever I'm travelling to another province/country, bakeries is the first place I visit. I really want to have my own famous bakery (like Bread History or Jessline K. Cakes) but I certainly have no idea how to make it happen lol. Cheers!

Well, you can start on a business plan and see what bakeries are usually up to. What they need and estimates on stuff... That can get you started if you are really going to take it seriously.

I would certainly want a business like McDonalds. How hard can a burger,fries,milkshake be prepared anyway. But in the meantime I have to find a secret formula:) Goodluck to all of us aspiring to have a big business someday. Presently I am into perfume business. I make my own perfumes and sell them.

I love selling promotional items. I do have a small part time business where I sell promotional items. But I do not make them as I buy them from China and resell them. I love this business though it is hardwork. Plus I would love to have my own online business. Maybe an afflate program created by me where I just (at the end of the day) sit back and let the money roll in!!

Great blouse, That is a good business to enter, garment industry has been growing and you may have a niche to discover for yourself. Mine would be of consultancy based firm, Specializing in Sales and Marketing services. There is one for my husband though, the Strawberry Land, where a cart is placed on strategic location on malls filled with strawberry products for sale.

I would love to publish a magazine for children. I have noticed that children are getting weaned away from reading which was our favourite activity when we were kids. A magazine meant solely for them would interest them more as it would contain information related to games, sports and general and local news items which would be short and to the point. I love interacting with children. Being a writer myself I would love to write and publish this magazine and invite them to contribute.

Well, that would be the kind of business that will stay around for awhile. I would go with a coffee shop. It seems like alot of people drink coffee and coffee houses are pretty good places for those kind of people.

I would love to be a personal shopper for clients with oodles of money! I have been told I have excellent taste and good eyes for the "newest, coolest" things, but I haven't been able to parlay this into a successful business yet. My other idea was to be a "buyer", selecting merchandise for other retailers from the masses. I think this would be awesome and would allow my influence to spread. Unfortunately, my background education is in science fields so I am hardly formally qualified to start the business I really want. I would love the opportunity though and I think that is why this will always remain in the back of my head.
