Ideas for small business to start

best new small business ideas to startHave you caught the entrepreneur bug and are wanting to start your own small business?

You’ve heard stories of people that have struck it rich by going out on their own and working for themselves.

The thoughts and dreams of running your own business can be intoxicating.

It’s funny that growing up,I never really thought about starting my own business; not as a child,not in high school,not even in college,and frankly,I didn’t think much about it after starting my career.

When I finally got the opportunity and saw what it really meant,starting my own small business has been one of the best ideas I’ve ever had.

If you’re looking to start your own small business,here are some of the best new small business ideas to kick around.

1. Financial planner

How could I write a blog post about the best small business ideas and not include my profession? Some of the perks of becoming a financial planner are that you control your own hours,you work with the people you want to work with,and the pay can be very good.

I don’t want to make it sound,though,that to become a financial planner is easy breezy because it does take a lot of work. It takes a long time,sometimes several years,to build up a client base and getting hired is often times tough,especially if you don’t have a financial background.

Think you have what it takes to my job? Here’s what you have to do to become a successful financial advisor.

There are independent companies like Primerica and World Financial Group that do allow for you to get into the industry,but oftentimes they’ll start you off with you getting your insurance license first.best new business opportunitiesStill,for an awesome profession,it is a nice way to get your foot in the door.

2. Insurance agent

For some people,the job description selling insurance is not that appealing,but the fact of the matter is it pays very well. Whether you’re a pure life insurance agent or a property and casualty,insurance agents can make very good money.

To get licensed,you just have to take some basic tests that will cost you a couple hundred bucks,including studying materials and the actual testing costs. To become an independent life insurance agent,is really easy now days as there are many independent brokerages that you can connect with.

Getting approved for property and casualty can be tough,especially depending on your geographic location. I’m in the process of adding an insurance division to my financial planning practice,and as of now,we’ve had a few obstacles in getting approved by any carriers for the P&C side.

Nonetheless,if you think you like insurance and you want to help people,it’s definitely a good profession,definitely a good small business idea that you can pursue.

3. Freelance writer

Even though I have a blog and you’re currently reading one of my blog posts,the irony to that is that I hate to write. Mostly because it’s not a natural gift and it takes a lot of time and energy and a lot of extra brain juice to crank out a good post; but if you’re able to knock out solid articles,in your spare time,this freelance writing might be right for you.

Any suggestions for small businesses to start?

I am interested in starting a small business with my brother and was wondering whether anybody on this board has any suggestions for types of businesses I might want to consider. I have some money saved up and would be doing this for investment purposes. What I don't have is time since I am already running my own business (providing specialized professional services, so I couldn't expand that to include my brother who doesn't have the same background). So the goal is to have my brother run the business with me providing the capital. He already has plenty of experience with running various fast food franchises, so I think he would be a good choice for running the type of small business which some would consider too mundane

Anyone that's ever tried to start a small busine

Can easily see the huge set-backs with too many regulations.
The first idea they come up with to overcome these harsh regs, is to conserve somewhere.
The more involved you get into your business, the more conservative you become.
If you decide that a small business of your own is almost impossible, you instantly start becoming more liberal in your ideas.
You feel the big guy is too big. The large company owes you something. And you feel you are entitled to a better life, and wait for the gov't to fix everything.
Yet for some reason, even the inner-city, uneducated, unskilled, motivated Dem, can figure out how to compete with a huge drug cartel, sling enough dope, and earn enough money to feed his family.

I have a business idea and I want to start it up

I've been working at a boring job for the last 2 years. Im getting sick of working for someone, so I developed this business idea. Is there a place for women who have ideas and need advice on starting up a small business. I've never run a business before so Im totally lost. All I have is an idea, a boyfriend who is volunteering his technology skills (he's going to work on a website and all the databases). I have limited capital but Im starting off very small.
Can anyone refer me to some books, websites that will help me gain confidence and know how?
