Hi,

You can look at our companies internet business ideas and see if anything sparks your interest.

Are you looking online/offline or both? Are you into automotive stuff? Are you more a risk taker or like to keep things conservative?

Are you looking for hands on or more of a management role?

Jeff

Be very careful when investing your money, as the economic environment is getting from bad to worse.

You could always consider investing in a small-ish creative company that's planning an interesting and non-patience requiring expansion over the next few months.

I think it's better if you do something that you are familiar with, rather than joining some hype.

Totally agree. Stick with your area of domain knowledge. At least what you know are actually facts. Go to a new area and what you know are mainly assumptions. Managing facts is far easier than managing assumptions.

I would take $100,000 of that money and purchase a category-killer domain name: something like keyword.com. Buy the best one you can find; then put the rest of the money into web design and the building of content on the site.
