Default Read Before Your First Post to This Section

To get useful responses we need to know a bit about you, your experiences, your hobbies etc. This will spark ideas and help everyone brainstorm.

Don't post like this:
"Help, I want to start a business but don't have any ideas."

Post something like this:
"Help, I want to start a business but don't have any good ideas. I've been working in retail for the last three years and I'd like to go out on my own. I enjoy the retail environment but it doesn't have to be that. I like setting up displays at my current job, I really like spending time with customers, and shopping for clothes (or just looking) is my idea of a fun way to spend a Saturday. My hobbie would probably be drawing."

The more you give us to work with the more ideas everyone will have. Don't think your hobbies are dumb or could never be turned into a business. You never know.

this is nice. i would do exactly just that, post and say help with really explaining. i think i already did with the copywriting.

i do have a lot of question but i guess i need to explore more. i also like the way this forum is guiding everybody as how to do things right to be able to get the needed answer.
