Depends on the type of business. Anything technology is going to have a high chance of not collapsing. Everybody wants their live easier and faster and that's where technology comes in.

We'd still need to pay for all that fabric though and hope that whatever anime cosplay we're working on sells out before the hype for the show dies down and we're stuck with a bunch of cosplay death notes books >_<

what if, we make a company that releases game sequels! But we just announces the sequel and never actually makes them, saying it's underdevelopment, then giving release dates, then delaying.

and when we actually make them, cut it up and sell it as DLC

Sounds like you work for EA??

This isn't really an idea as I'm already doing it, I'm making a piece of software in .NET to be used by chartered surveyors to simply click options, and it generates surveys. I already have two surveyors who've opted in.

I'd love to make a clone of Rage of Mages 2 (Obv updated graphics, and a slicker interface) for the android/iphone.

IDK about a business, but you I'd take your money for research and development. I'd make non-invasive lasers to cut kidneys. Apparently whenever people get kidney transplants, if they had high blood pressure before, their blood pressure drops permanently. So, I'd find a way to cut peoples kidneys in a way that would be similar to what happens to people when they get transplants. The world is full of people with high blood pressure, so I'd imagine this technology would be widely used especially since you don't have to actually be cut open! As far as seeing a return on your investment, though, I have no idea how medical devices/procedures become accepted by the medical world.

Pretty good idea right? You bet it is. I'm really fucking smart.

Probably provide training to a niche market, for example environmental management.

You mean like physically training people in a face to face environment?? that's a great idea but think bigger ^_^ even if it's a success our limited to people in the area. Just imagine if you created a app but you could only download it at the one supermarket down the street from you.You end up cutting out all that long distance profit :3




I guess I disagree, because in the first place my expertise is in the environment. It's what I would be known for and trusted in. Secondly, you are not necessarily limiting yourself by focusing on a niche market. Finally, there's nothing wrong starting with a small business or idea, and gaining on your success.

A cosplay store would be very doable; just look to examples of clothing and fabric stores and go from there. The difficult thing will be whether there's sufficient demand. There just might be, if you can target people who are secretly interested but haven't taken the plunge. Not that I'd know anything about that.

If you do some really solid market research and can show you can pull people off the sidelines, you just might be able to solicit funding. Just assume that the investor wants to maximize their share of profits and minimize their share of risk; be prepared to play hard ball. Or, somehow figure out how to make money another way and then self-finance.

Yes. All we need is professionals making the cosplay outfits properly match the clothing in anime/manga/video games. The same goes for the props, shoes, and wigs as well. If we can get a lot of workers who are great at making costumes look good, it should work. The store should be big, in my opinion.

Space exploration and the money for getting people up to space commercially has moved into the private sector.

You know what they're going to need? Trash people. All of that space trash.

Find a way to deal with the trash problem - including the landfills on earth - and the inevitable growing heaps of trash orbiting our planet, and you will make billions.

It'll cost plenty, but someone will help you with your idea if you can find a way to show them it works.
If you can pin down what information you need and get it out there that's what you're looking for, you'll likely get some hits.
Environmentally conscious companies like Google might even back you up with it.

Ahhhhhhhhhhh, thank you but I'm stuck on the idea part ^_^ I've made money online without having to leave my house $140.00 in 2 days granted I had to spend 40 but I made my money back plus more a little profit. I just need something that I can use or do that will create some reliable income...... Legally :3

Running my own business probably isn't something I would enjoy but two things I would possibly consider...

a) A traditional english tea room.

b) A shop dedicated to selling anime and manga related goods.

Both are things I feel strongly about and want to see more of.
