Sun Loungers For Dogs

April 23rd, 2010 » Comments (0)

Meet my dog, Otis. That’s him as a puppy on the right. He’s grown a bit bigger now, but he still behaves like a puppy. He has many cute habits. One of which inspired this business idea. You see this morning I found him lying in what looked a most uncomfortable way, squeezed into a […]



Testing Your Own Business Idea

March 11th, 2010 » Comments (3)

Entrepreneurs, in fact everyone, loves their own business ideas. Just watch a few episodes of Dragons’ Den you’ll see exactly what I mean as the would be entrepreneurs parade their business ideas in front of the Dragons. There’s always a few hopefuls looking for investment in their great business idea even though it’s nothing more […]



Bad Business Ideas

March 8th, 2010 » Comments (0)

Just watch an episode of two of Dragon’s Den and you’ll realise that some people are oblivious to the fact that their are pushing a bad business idea. Given the huge number of businesses that fail within their first year of trading the entrepreneurs on Dragon’s Den clearly aren’t alone. That said, far to many […]



Service Business Ideas

March 4th, 2010 » Comments (0)

I recently suggested to someone looking for a business idea that they consider a service business. They promptly asked: What’s a service business? Which is actually quite a reasonable question, as there seem to be several accepted definitions.

Newspaper Delivery

February 11th, 2010 » Comments (0)

As the Internet, online news sites and blogs in particular have become more popular I’ve stopped reading printed newspapers. They seem rather quaint and old fashioned. Not everyone feels that way however. Some people, my dad for one, still enjoy reading their printed newspaper everyday. Although I suspect it’s the older generations that still enjoy […]



Cod Farming

I finally got around to watching the last episode (fish) of Britain’s Really Disgusting Food last night. I’m not keen on the show. In my opinion Alex Riley ruins what could have been an interesting look at what we eat with stupid juvenile pranks, but I do have an interest in food so I suffered […]



Free Business Ideas

February 4th, 2010 » Comments (6)

A reader asks: Why do you give away your business ideas for free? Is it because free business ideas are bad business ideas? I give away “free” business ideas because I have, read about or come across more business ideas than I could every possibly execute myself. Besides business ideas in and of themselves are […]



Niche Website Ideas

January 29th, 2010 » Comments (1)

I get a lot of requests for online business ideas and whilst many of those asking are dreaming of building a business worthy of the being on of the top ten Internet business ideas, most people just want an idea that they can pursue part time, as a home based business. I usually advise the […]



Event (Sports) Business Ideas

November 9th, 2009 » Comments (2)

On Saturday I ran my first ever trail race, the EnduranceLife Coastal Trail Series. I entered the 10K, which was more than enough for me at the moment. They also run a half and full marathon version of the race. It was an amazing experience, trail running turned out to be much harder than I […]



Can You Sell Business Ideas?

August 13th, 2009 » Comments (3)

A reader asks: Do really think you can’t sell business ideas? Because I can think of 3 ways. Write a book or ebook about all different types of business ideas – of which there are hundreds of books. Set up a website like yours and make money from ad-ons and advertising. Sell business kits containing […]
