Wanting My Own Business

Don't get me wrong - I have a great job and I love it. Why else would I still be here on my fourth year with the company?

However, I also know what it is like to work for yourself, on your own time, and to make your own decisions. My freelance stint has taught me much and lately, I have found myself thinking of focusing on finding ways to make a living on my own. I am sure that I am not alone in thinking this way. I have seen friends and colleagues try to start small businesses of their own to supplement their income. Here are some of the best - and easiest - ideas that I am considering:
  • Food franchises
  • Baking goodies and selling them (yeah, Vicki!)
  • Freelance writing
So far, it is the third one that has been helping me a lot. I really want to work on one of those food franchises and set one up in my hometown but I need a bit more capital for that. Got any ideas of your own?

  1. You might consider attending livelihood seminars so as to gain more knowledge on how to have and maintain a business. The Technology Resource Center (TRC) conducts business startup and management seminars.
