The hottest business opportunities today

Postby Rich » Sat Aug 12, 2006 1:19 am

I`d love to see what you folks think are the hottest business opportunities out there these days, and what opportunities will be hot in the coming year.
If you could wipe the slate clean right now and start all over, what kind of business would it be?
And why?
Rich
P.S. We`ll try to talk about some of the ideas you post here on our radio show.

I`m going to agree with Jeff... energy is huge. I`d love to hear about innovative companies in this sector.
Also--Web 2.0. What are some hot companies and how are they making money?
Maybe on the small business side... scrapbooking. I hear my mom and her friends talk about it all the time.

Rich,
Energy is # 1. as far as big money and big investment. BTW did anybody see that Extreme Engineering show about how they are tapping the huge natural gas field off of the northern coast of Russia  a Large enough field to power the current world`s needs for 40 years!
IF I had my choice to wipe the slate clean and get into something big. It would probably be directing the engineering and construction of a feasible high speed rail system in this country that could be implemented over a decade, create loads of jobs, and present a true energy savings over air travel. It kills me to see that we have so much to gain by developing a quality rail system here yet we red tape every single idea to death. The only reason I`m glad that we haven`t done anything with it yet is because we have been able to see the technology get better and better.

Okay, Okay, I am a shill.
Hottie Body Tan www.hottiebodytan.com  We all love vanity and want to look better!  The tanning industry is a 5 billion dollor industry...and it continues to grow with additional "cosmetic upgrades"...okey my elevator pitch it up.
I say vanity, all the way!

Well, I believe one of the hottest opportunities right now is the "errand/concierge" business. That is why I decided to start my own concierge business.  It was rated by Entreprenaur as one of the 10 hottest also.  Everyone is working longer hours and more days than in the past, people are getting burnt out and there are things that just dont get done that can be handled by concierges.  More people are starting up in this business and prospective clients could be just about anyone. Anyone that is overworked or needs some help now and then.  Also it works great for other home based businesses for backup office support without the benefits of a full time employee. Also in a business office instead of hiring temps concierges could fill the job too and they come with varied backgrounds since they usually have sub contractors that work for them.  Hospitals are now starting to offer concierge services as well as luxury apts/condominium complexes.  Concierge services are not just in the plush hotels anymore they are for the working class, post op patients, hospital patients, realtors. The list really is long. But it can be a lifesaver for people that are far away from family and friends and have no one to help in emergencies.Hope that helped a little.. Thanks

Hi conciergelady ,
Your viewpoint seems so wonderfull,I am very interested in this plan.Could you tell more about this, or could you tell me where I can know more information about this.
I am from China, you know there are 1.3 billion people in China, I think this is a big market for  errand/concierge.

Rich,
After some deep thought. I believe that the big money is going to the retiring baby boomer crowd. Silly as it may seem, the RV industry with all the towing equipment and all the gizmos and gadgets are really popping. People, as it turns out, really do want to see the world when they die.
 If you can somehow reach that market.......the people that are still mobile, have some money to burn, and aren`t so fragile that they can`t drive or care for themselves.
The errand/concierege service fits right into this plan as would anything that eases the challenges of retiring and aging folk everywhere.
I have no stake in the business of serving elderly people. I just really believe that this is going to be one of the hands-down  hot business opportunities.
