Additional List of New Small Business Ideas
Besides the first 110 small business ideas originally published in the first edition of this article, I like to add these new business ideas to cater for people who are yet to locate their own startup business ideas. As promised, I will keep updating these business ideas. Therefore, if you have gone through the whole business ideas and you are yet to find a suitable one, you may check this section often to see if it has been updated with new business ideas. The only difference is that we may not restrict the list of business ideas in this section to small business ideas one can start with little capital. I have come to understand that some people actually have money but they don’t know any specific entrepreneurial business idea they can invest their money in. Therefore, these business ideas may be small, medium or large scale business ideas. As usual, the entrepreneurial business ideas will be arranged in an alphabetical order.
Illiteracy is a disease. Imagine the kind of life an illiterate people will live in this our information age. If you live in a remote village, you may not be bothered whether you are educated or not. But for people living in cities, being an illiterate can make someone to be a misfit. The truth is that, we have a lot of them around us. If you ask people in this category, they will tell you that they don’t want to remain an illiterate. Adult education is a good business idea that you can start having this group of people as your target. The major subject you need to focus on is communication. You will teach them on how to communicate in formal language. This can be French or English language. This is a good home based business idea. It is an entrepreneurial business idea you can start with low investment. If you have your regular job, you can run this startup business as a side business. This means you will run your classes on weekends.
Do you know that a lot of people die as a result of lack of quick assistance needed to convey them to the hospital where they can receive treatment? Someone once narrated a particular ordeal he experienced sometimes to me. It is a story I don’t like to remember. A close relation of his got involved in a fire accident which left the victim with a lot of burns all over her body. They were looking for an ambulance to convey her to the hospital and they couldn’t find one until several hours after the incident had happened. Because of this delay, the victim couldn’t survive it. It was a very painful and pathetic story. Even as I am typing this article, I am still clinching my hands as if the incident just happened. Ambulance service is actually a good business idea. However, you need some fund to start this business idea. If you start this business idea, you will not only make money, you will have the joy and fulfilment that you are saving lives. If you desire to start this startup business, you may need to liaise with hospitals. Also, you can help ambulance points at major highways. Your telephone hotlines should be visible to passers bye.
The need to conduct background checks on employees and customers cannot be over-emphasized. It is not that employers do not know that it is very important to conduct a check on their employees. Most of them don’t do it because they don’t have time for it or they don’t know how to do it professionally. There have been cases of situations where employees that were trusted with company’s resources defrauded the company. Supposing adequate background checks of such staffs were conducted, possibly some of the frauds would have been prevented. The same thing goes with customers. Advancing credits to customers who are not credit worthy can ground a business. The money a company will pay somebody to conduct a background checks on its employees and customers is not comparable to possible losses to fraudulent staffs or defaulted customers. That is why a business that conducts professional background checks is a good business idea to start especially in this period of economy recession. This type of startup business idea requires good networking skill.
