i have my own beaty salon which i opened four years ago. i love it but i would love to open a garden centre .i would have loved to have been a gardner but i dont think my back would be strong enough , theres a lot of manual work and even if i weed or mow at home my back is really sore . its still my dream though as i can see myself among all the plants and trees grown by my fair hand lol.

I can relate to what you are saying because it takes me three or 4 days to recover from being out in the yard working. I love being out there but I do feel it. It wont stop me from working in the yard, but I do get sore. I felt like a truck ran over me the last time I spent the entire day out there.

your so right and I would have to agree because if your not happy then you hate it...and then you wont put your best into it. I know I wouldnt want to do something that I hated.

I would love to start my own nursery, children's nursery for 2- 4 year olds. I have the necessary qualifications and it would be a dream to not only work with children but to run the nursery and have staff working for me, under me. I would take an active role in running the nursery and would adopt a hands on approach. Prove to others that man can and should be able to work with children

I totaly agree. I have seen some excellent teachers and they were men. I hope you will be able to achieve this and its so good for the children to have people who really want to teach.

My primary business markets telecommunications services online. We started the business nearly 15 years ago, and we have paid commissions accurately and on time every month since then. The company we started is now a public company, based in the USA. Website: http://cognigen.com

I originally wanted to own a new and used book store. But some research found that in our area there just wasn't room for another one. Now all I want to do is write books, and publish them. I want to become a published author and am working on that right now. Well, not right now. Right now I'm chatting on mylot and not getting much writing done at all! LOL!

My business is options trading. I am the only employee, there is little overhead, the hours are great, no boss to please, there is unlimited income opportunity, I can work at home, take a day off, whatever. I don't sell a product and there are no customers. If one can learn to trade, it makes the perfect business. It is not easy and requires lost of work. And it requires lots of time to learn how to trade. If I can generate enough profits, I can use some of the money to start some other businesses.

Let's see .. it would have to be a business that would permit me time to travel. Real estate rentals would be a possibility .. that can be left in the hands of a rental agency.
