My answer to If I want to create a business that really helps people, what are some ideas and options?
Answer by Ken Larson:
Below are the top 10 I have observed as "Hot" recently on the small business airwaves:
**On line administrative assistant
** Services to the elderly- transportation, errands etc
** Pet Care and Training Services
** Federal government contracting through 123 federal agencies in almost every field of endeavor
** "GREEN " Environmental initiatives in almost every venue
** Maintenance, Repair and upkeep of foreclosed properties
** Non-profit organizations for community development chasing grants
** Self-Help Guides for Business** Training on all aspects of small business Management
** On-line Books
Successful small businesses are developing enterprises in these fields through market research and business plans to deliver unique products and services – then pricing them and comparing them to the existing market, the competition and client demographics to determine feasibility before applying for financing and launching an enterprise.
