    Respected Sir, I am planning to start my own business. I think starting exclusive mushroom shop in Coimbatore city is having excellent scope. Please give me some ideas about how do I execute my plan. Is it possible to open a shop with less investment in my area. Kindly Reply

    • Scott Wilson Reply

      Very innovative and modern idea man. I appreciate this one.
      This is very much possible to start mushroom shop. But for that you need to do opportunity analysis.
      Instead of blindly going in that business, first do some proper research and then start.

    I would like to start an online dry goods business, which is really directed to the exportation of food to third world countries. I want to have the website in which persons can order directly from the site and have their goods shipped to them. I am looking for a reputable drop shipping company, which I can do this through. Please tell me how do I go about doing this. Basically what I am saying is, the costume sees an item on my website, they buy the item and the item is shipped directly to them. I want to do this where I will not be responsible for shipping the items. Eager to start this business. It’s my passion.

    I had an idea to start a infant food business. I am not having experience. And don’t know how much capital required nor what is the procedure for starting it. And where will I get the machinery. Can you please help me regarding this idea.
    Thank you.

    • Scott Wilson Reply

      To start any business, you need to know something about that business or have some experience in the same field. It is very difficult to just start a business of our choice without any information and experience. So better do a job for a short period of time in some such company of infant food. Or you can think of some other ideas that you are familiar with.
      Thank you.

    Hello sir,
    I am a school student and I am having entrepreneurship as one of my subjects I have to make a project report of a business plan, so for the report we are asked to have some really innovative and new sustaining business idea. Our teacher has asked to not to exceed the investment. So I am planing to have business idea which can be established.

    Please can you suggest me some different new and unique idea which can be sustainable and through which I can help my surrounding poor jobless people.

    I have one idea: few days back I read in newspaper that local handicraft market people are ridiculously fooling the foreign tourists by selling products at very high cost. So I was thinking that I can have my own handicraft manufacturing and selling unit employing the villagers who know this work and sell the products to the tourists and can try to export at lower rates.
    Thanking you in anticipation.

      Hello Shankar,
      Ideas you already have, you need to identify your strength and market demand. Whichever business you want to start, make sure that you have enough opportunities and market is open for you.

      If a business idea fits into your budget, interest and experience and there is a good opportunity in the market, go for it.
