What’s great about owning a Small Business?

Just imagine:

  • identifying a product or service that people want
  • doing what you love to do
  • doing something useful, or for which there’s a clear need
  • creating something new
  • improving people’s quality of life or work.

Imagine doing any one of these, and being paid for it. Imagine getting full credit, both monetarily and in client satisfaction, for your great business idea.2009_1210_cp_who_are_the_garifuna_580x290

The wonderful thing about small business is that enterprise-ready ideas are all around you. Consider these activities as business opportunities:

  • cleaning
  • mowing lawns
  • washing cars
  • walking dogs or washing pets
  • looking after younger children
  • umpiring sports matches
  • teaching people to swim
  • organising discos, dances or school excursions
  • finding information on the Internet
  • designing and producing greeting cards
  • printing brochures for local churches or associations
  • baking biscuits
  • translating for people who don’t speak much English
  • reading for blind or elderly people
  • lending books, toys or bikes.

People are prepared to pay you for these things for all sorts of reasons:

  • They don’t have the know-how.
  • They physically can’t do it by themselves and need assistance.
  • They don’t know where to find the information they need.
  • They don’t have the necessary equipment, such as the sound system or the computer.
  • They want to use something, but don’t want to commit to buying it.
  • They’re very busy.
  • The job has to be done and there is nobody else to do it.
