Building a Business


Two days ago my college classmate and a good friend (up to now) sent me a private message in YM. She was asking me for ideas on what business is IN nowadays. She was thinking of flower shop or events coordination which I replied that there are a lot of competitors in that field. Yesterday she's talking about wrapping papers. I told her that honestly I have no idea if the latter will boom. I told her that I don’t have much of a knowledge on which business is in demand nowadays.
I mentioned about "franchising". She can select from food carts to food chains (which is obviously will cost much more money). She didn't like franchising so I will try to propose Heritage Web Solutions . This might interest her since she's a Computer Science graduate. All I have to do is ask her if she has a flair for building web sites or if she wants to do it on a part-time basis, then she can be a marketer for the company.

Otherwise, I opted to tell her about the businesses featured on a TV show in a local channel here in Manila which aims to help Filipinos in having a business of their own and be a successful entrepreneur. I'll just have to take notes while watching the TV this weekend.

My sister has a business of her own together with a friend. She's very driven and I admire her for that. I hope I can be like her but I tried a few businesses myself and the problem is "marketing". I tend to get shy with people whom I didn't know. That's why, selling is not for me. I'm planning to have a business of my own...someday. For the meantime, I'm going to save and invest some of it in stocks.
