How to Choose a Great
Business Idea That's Right For You

Below is a list of some small business ideas that I hope will be of great value to you. Almost all of these ideas are home business start-ups and are among the best, most profitable, and easiest small businesses to start.

Are you here because you are uncertain exactly what small business start up is right for you? I have a big tip for you! If you can find the right product to sell, one of the easiest ways is to make money online is with an eBay business.

Why is that? Because online shopping is becoming the number one way people are choosing to find what they need, and eBay is the number one marketplace for most online shoppers.

You can also make money online using your own website store, but I mention eBay here because it's absolutely the easiest, especially for you uncertain ones.

However, whatever idea you choose, my first suggestion is not to go after an idea that you think is a "popular" one or one of the "hottest new business ideas" out there, that is making money for others, and will therefore make money for you too. That could be your first, and last, mistake! Here are a few suggestions that may help you decide which small business idea is right for you:

  • Your idea should stem from some activity in your life that you already really enjoy doing. You should be so excited about doing it that each morning when you get up it's like "Oh boy, let's go!" For example, using computers and building this website business is more like a favorite hobby to me rather than work.
  • You should know at least a lot about your subject and be willing to learn more and more until you become an expert at it. Of course, the more working knowledge you have about your topic, the more confident you will be about it, the richer will be it's content, and the more successfull you will be at building it.
  • And last, your choice of small business start up has to meet some kind of need for others, if it does not, nobody will buy it! So research it. Make sure that your business idea will meet people's needs or that it's something that people really want, and preferably, something where the desire for it won't putter-out.

Home business idea. The gift basket business (new window), though it requires more in the way of capital and supplies, has great income potential for someone who is artistically inclined.



Take Your Time Choosing
a Business

Below is a list of small business ideas. I suggest you not decide on a definite topic too soon. Planning and doing the necessary research for the best topic is very important if you plan starting a small business.

Take your time, think it carefully through, and then choose with confidence. You might have a good idea of what your small business idea will be right now! However, you want to make sure that you don't choose one that will end up wasting your time, energy, and money.

Small business idea - dog sitting, dog grooming, dog walking

Here is my wonderful dog Pinkie! I love to show her off. We spend a lot of time visiting parks, and while talking to other dog lovers there I soon discovered that there is a great need for dog groomers (new window), dog sitters (new window), and dog walkers. This type of small business is relatively inexpensive and easy to get into.

If you are thinking about selling a particular product at your own offline retail shop, first consider this: having your own storefront business could be (unless it is an inherited, family owned business) an expensive and many times more difficult small business to start up, for most entrepreneurs, especially if you are a beginner.

Maybe test the popularity of your service or product by listing it online at eBay.com first. Actually, creating a website business or starting a business on eBay, would be easier and far less expensive than opening an offline storefront.
