I'm looking for a small business that I can work around university.
I know about wine and anything culture if that gives you an idea.
Ummm any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

Welcome to the forum

Do you have any web development skills where you can build a web site?

Wine's a (great) huge market with many niches - very fruitful

Could you make an authoritative resource including a directory of wine related websites. Promote that directory and build traffic over time. In exchange for your time, run/advertise adsense on your site and get paid for clicks on advertising by visitors. Do it well, build quality traffic over the long term ... and you could be making consistent money this way. Takes hard work but not a lot of money. Say you can average earning .25 cents per click - realistic w/i wine niche imo. Can you build traffic to average 10 clicks per hour? Not too hard really - that works out to 2.5 per hour x 24 hour daily average ... or $60 per day. That's $1800 per month. You get the idea, and can probably do much better with time and experience by the time you reach your senior year - if you are average, I bet you could reach 4x that - $7200 per month. Why college by the way is a question you might start to ask yourself. Got to make it high quality, content is king, value added web site, good presentation, usability, promotion, etc ... though. Takes work - but it can be done.
