Hi everyone I hope I've posted this in the right section.

I want to start a business in order to be able to leave my job. But I need some advice about how to create/find a winning business idea.

How did you find yours. I don't want to waste time and effort working on a bad idea?

    Hi Zara!

    We'll it is a nice plan to start up a business but you have to set goals as well. There are a few things you must consider. First, do you have that "enough" budget to start up a business? What kind of business would you like to start? Are you knowledgeable about that kind of business? As for me, I have chosen to run a digital design & printing business (we usually design promotional products, printed marketing stuff and all) since I know a lot about graphic designing. You should choose a business in line with your interest so that you'll be comfortable & capable of running it.

    hello Zara
    I admire your tought about opening your own business. but in my opinion you should first be clear on your interest or buy others proposal which corresponds to your feeling.
    I have one special business idea but unfortunately, it is a little bit costy since i worked hard on it. any how if you are interested i am open for a discussion.

    Hey Zara,

    I'd like to add my two cents here as well.

    Don't be afraid of not finding the right idea. There are a lot of great ideas that didn't reach success. Building a successful business is not just about the idea. You have to get a few aspects right to make an impact.

    I think edwardmason gave you some great advice. Especially on the what makes you flare part. In some cases, the best businesses came from people just loving what they do.

    Hi Zara,

    Don't be afraid, if you want to start a small business you can start in making a website for it. there are many free website creator you can search if you don't know how to create a website.

    Just remember the 3 P's. Place, People, Product. ..
