THE ENCYCLOPEDIA OF BUSINESS IDEAS – IS THIS A JOKE?
August 9, 2011
Business ideas as per The Encyclopedia of Business Ideas.
HERE ARE SOME EASY ENTRY, LOW COST, NO SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS TYPE BUSINESSES.
Designated Driver – I would have thought this was a taxi.
A Dog Waste Removal Business certainly isn’t glamorous, but it’s easy to do, quick and the competition isn’t fierce. The marketing of this business is very simple, just hang flyers at the doggie parks and let the calls roll in. This one couldn’t be easier. This could also be combined with the Dog Walking Service and Mobil Dog Grooming Business. Easy, peasy, lemon squeezy.
Rubbish Removal- Another business that’s low on the glam scale, but probably lots of money to be made. A truck, tools, a commercial dump site, and helpers would be the needed. I’m sure different locations have specific rules, it would be essential to check them before the first haul.
NOW FOR A FEW TOTALLY CONFUSING BUSINESS IDEAS:
Lampshade business – Creativity a must, as is fabric, trim and glue. I’m not sure about this one, maybe I’m just not in the know but when is the last time you purchased a decorated lampshade?
Perfume Creating – This one is great. Listed is vials of oil and a good nose. I love this one!
Baby Planning Business – This seems like a service that people need when they issues making decisions and no mother-in-laws to tell them how to do it.
THESE ARE HEAVY ON THE SPECIAL SKILLS:
Animal Behavior Consulting Business – This seems like a great business to have but I have to say, I haven’t met many people who are animal behavior experts. There is a certification that requires a veterinary degree AND two years of coursework.
Stand-Up Comedy Business – OK I know we’re stretching with this one. I’d rather have a 9-5 than to even consider this one. I say, “Good luck and you better be hilarious to make this one work.”
Braille Transcription – This one is brilliant. I have no idea about the actually of getting the jobs, but there is probably a need out there.
Bee Keeping (Apiary) – This business takes tons of work, extensive knowledge and understanding of science. The amount of honey you actually get from all the work is minimal. The real money comes when you rent your hives and transport the bees to orchards. This is complex and working with bees is not fun.
LIKE YOU WOULDN’T KNOW ABOUT STARTING ONE OF THESE BUSINESSES!
Flight School – It just dawns on you that there’s all this equipment out there and you’re a flight instructor? Come on now…
Tree Farming – Tons of land and the understanding of trees. I don’t believe someone would have the resources for this one and have to discover it online.
Apartment Building Business – Here we go again. All that special skill, tons of equipment and access to oodles of cash or loans.
I hope you’ve enjoyed this post. I think some of the businesses listed are a riot and I think you might find them intriguing as well. Let me know if you have any ideas to include for next time.
