Does anyone still read this blog? (Business Opportunities and Ideas)

May 1st, 2015 » Comments (0)

After several years of neglect I intend to start writing on this blog again and before I do I’d like to warn anyone who has forgotten they had subscribed by email that it’s going to happen. I hope you’d like to continue to read the blog, but if not you’re almost certainly receiving updates by […]



Advanced / Winter Driving Instructor

If, like me, you live in the UK then you’ve no doubt enjoyed/suffered (depending on your point of view) quite a bit of snow over the last week. Unfortunately, early on in ‘the big freeze’ a friend of mine was caught out by the conditions and had a small crash. Fortunately no one was hurt […]



Fixing Hacked WordPress Blogs

November 5th, 2009 » Comments (1)

Today has been a rather frustrating day, instead of getting on with my next MBA assignment – having managed to find a spare week to work on it – I found myself working hard to find out why Google thought Business Opportunities and Ideas was distributing malware and then once I’ve found out why, how […]

The following is a guest post from  Stuart Mourant. Suart is a personal trainer I met when at the gym I joined earlier this year. I spent quite a lot of time talking to Stuart whilst I was in the gym, sometimes about training, mostly about business. Recently Stuart has been looking to expand his […]



Paid Content Business Opportunities Enabled By Google Micropayments

September 15th, 2009 » Comments (1)

Those of us that have been using the Internet for a while now have seen the topics of paid content and micropayments (which would enable paid content)  come in and go out of fashion several times. There has been a standard objection to the idea of paid content as a business model, namely that users […]

This year I’ve been making a real effort to become fitter. As part of that I’ve joined a gym, started mountain biking again and resumed a regular running schedule. In each case I’ve needed (or wanted) to buy equipment to maximise the benefit and enjoyment I get from the activity. I’ve brought new running shoes, […]



How To Make A Million Pounds – aMillionJobsToDo

July 22nd, 2009 » Comments (6)

In the article How To Make A Million Pounds I explained how simple it is to make a million pounds explaining that it’s just a matter of starting a business and applying the formula: £1M = Profit x Number of Sales Which, with some rearrangement allows you to determine, based on your profit per sale, […]



Linux For Small Businesses

I’ve had one of my software developer friends visiting for the last few days. As usual we’ve spent most of our time talking about either software development, or business (or both – the business of software development). Despite being geeks we’ve both been long term users of Microsoft Windows, but now we’re finding ourselves drawn […]



Start A Scrap Business

June 16th, 2009 » Comments (0)

They may be clichés but the sayings: One man’s rubbish is another man’s treasure. and: Where there’s muck there’s brass. make a very valid point. There are hundreds, if not thousands of business opportunities relating to scrap (be that household waste, commercial waste, industrial byproducts). With the increased emphasis that governments are placing on recycling […]



Swine Flu Creates Business Opportunities

May 6th, 2009 » Comments (2)

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the last few weeks you’ll have seen, read or heard all sorts of news about swine flu. At times some of the reporting has made it sound like we’re facing a repeat of previous flu pandemics and the prospect of millions of deaths worldwide. Scary stuff and […]
