I always wished to open a business. Unfortuntaely money keeps me away from doing so. What type of business would you open if you could?

I have the same dream, that of opening a business of my own. This way, i won't be answering to any employer. My time will be my own. If the business goes well, then, I will have myself to congratulate. If the business will not work, then, I will also have myself to blame. In short, I am my own destiny. I love to cook so much. Thus, a food or restaurant business should be in my line. I keep on dreaming about this, that's why, I am saving a little of my hard earned money from employment so that when I retire, I can open a small and cozy book cafe. I love books and magazines. I have a collection of them. My cafe will be lined with friendly looking book stands and magazine stands, plants, aromatic candles, intimate tables and chairs, soft bossa music in the background and nice paintings on the walls. Simple food will be served, mostly, gourmet pasta, pizza, coffee and teas, etc., etc. This may just be a wish or a dream but what is important is I am already starting the planning and saving money for this dream. Since cooking and reading are my favorite activities, I am confident that I won't lose my focus. Financial matters will just follow. If there's a will there's a way, as they say.

I just started my own business 3 months ago. The first phase is an online magazine about handmade. After we establish a good reputation we want to organize fairs and workshops and maybe even have a print magazine. Until now it cost me a little over 100$ (just the domain and hosting) because all my editors are volunteers and we did the website ourselves. I'll let you know how it goes :)

I read that at some point in life, mostly everyone is interested in starting their own business, yet only a handful of people do. I would love to open my own business. It would probably be something like a photography business or freelance writer. The start up costs, of course, hold me back though. There are small business loans fo new businesses, but I'm not too interested in loans.
