Awesome ideas for a dream business! Thanks for this post - it’s something I’ve been thinking a lot about the past few months.
See, I had an office job for the longest time. I didn’t really allow myself to dream of running my own business someday, because growing up, I thought a “business” meant a brick-and-mortar shop and having staff salaries to pay every month, and generally feeling harassed about the hundred possible things that could go wrong, etc. At least that’s what I witnessed as a kid observing my mom and dad. They constantly fretted and worried if certain suppliers will be delayed, and if that new strip mall opening in town will threaten their small shop. In short, a business didn’t seem like a fun way to make money, so I ended up being a corporate drone for years.
When I finally freed myself from the shackles of corporate slavery, I found myself wondering if my myopic view of having my own business should be changed. Nowadays, it’s pretty obvious that creativity, a passion for something, and experience are factors that could contribute to a successful business. Sure, there will be challenges, but they don’t have to be the kind that my parents faced on a daily basis. So on that note, I am really going to aim for a niche blog to monetize eventually. The least I could do is have fun while earning, right?
