Where to find small business ideas


We can see trends and act on them, such as the emergence of self as the largest employer. The jobs of the future will likely be in businesses created by you, for yourself.

I'm writing more and more on Squidoo, and I've quit writing for my blogs. For Bastiat Free University I will be doing a BFuniv tweet update most weekdays on twitter. As Seth Godin might say, my rubber band has stretched to the breaking point.

Squidoo has more tools than a blog, and most pages grow in readership over time, instead of disappearing into the archives. I've tried various archiving methods on other blogs, but with few exceptions, older post just sit there unread. If you want to try Squidoo too, there will be a link on my "lens."

It does take more time to build a quality Squidoo page, but it is fairly easy to find and improve what I've written. Something that rarely happens to these journal posts. Squidoo has a simple modular structure that allows a lot of customization.

Here is the new style I'm going to test for a while. I have a Squidoo lens that lists what I've written there. At the top of the page I will list my most recent pages, the others will be grouped by category. If you want to treat it like a blog, just look at the most recent entries.

If you find something interesting, say about business or finance, scroll down to one of the five modules and find more on the subject. I will be playing with the format - over the next few months it may change occasionally.

Go take a look, the page is (currently) titled:

"An eccentric old fellow who trains visionaries." - a lensography

Starting your own business is wonderful. It takes some hard work, but the end results can be very satisfying. A personal recommendation to anyone wanting to start or run their own business is "Doing Business By the Book," by Sophfronia Scott.

There is no better time to start your own business. A bad economy breeds many future successes.
