    Hello Rich,
    You pose a really good question here. My thought on this is that we really don`t know. I think we need to create the infrastructure that allows for new ideas to emerge in order to figure this one out. There`s a startupnation forum that is pretty hot right now that is discussing my vision for the future and small businesses. I`m hoping our strategy opens up the market to everyone while also creating opportunites for people that were never thought of.

    On my opinion, real estate is still the best business opportunity today cause of the low cost of most property at this state. For future business, it is good to start investing in solar energy, for the next 20 years, the demand for electricity will increase and hybrid system will be implemented.

    Opening an e-commerce site is a great business. By making it very simple to use and with great offers it can easily get popular.

    Hi All,
    I think no matter what industry, there's always some type of niche that can be used for a great business opportunity.
    Some of the best opportunities I came across revolved around the financial industry because it doesn't evolve so fast. I listed the following in no particular order:
    1. Becoming an insurance agent - the commission is low, but the more customers you get, the income quickly adds up. We are talking about residual income that keeps coming back to you if the customer keeps paying their premiums.
    2. Real Estate - be good at what you do and if you are lucky, you can sell a few houses and make the equivalent of someone working 15 to 30 an hour job. Of course this ain't no walk in the park, like any other business - there are tons of paperwork and the chance that a sale will not go through.3. Tax preparer - I love the idea of working a quarter of the year and relaxing for the remainder of the year. Of course, those 3 months leading up to tax day is going to be stressful.
    Even though the ideas above are great, they weren't a good fit for me, so I decided to stick with something I have experience with and that's fixing computers, mobile phones, tablets, etc.
    Recently, I have started to look into computer repair franchises, to replicate a successful business model, but franchises are expensive. Some I have looked at are Computer Troubleshooters, Fast-teks, CPR, Nerds To Your Rescue, Inc, etc. So far, the one that catches my attention is Nerds To Your Rescue because of their franchise giveaway videos. Seems a bit suspicious, but we shall see...

    I think this is a great time to invest in natural gas industry. Recently I make a research on an Israel oil and gas company Delek Drilling and found that they give great returns.

    If I have to start or invest in a business then it will be on "Sharing economy" or "Rental marketplace platform". People love to buy goods and services online. So starting a online business like Uber platform, Airbnb, etc can be a good option.

    There are lot of vendors out there providing % customizable rental marketplace scripts that you can purchase and modify to start your own business.

    There are a lot of business opportunities out there. By sitting at the comforts of your home, you can start new business and start working from home. Affiliate marketing , blogging, arts and painting, digital creation, online tutoring, and yoga classes are some of the very good businesses to do at ease. Business opportunities for entrepreneurs and this is a list of very good business opportunities that I have come across. And these things are very interesting and common in the era of internet and computing. And everyone can try at least one of them.

    Hey Guys,

    I think errands and picking up supplies is huge right now. Of course, you need to find the supplies to ensure local delivery. Uber drivers and picking-up/delivering food is big. Prior to COVID and for the past 2 years I have helped people set-up online shopping clubs. I work with them over Zoom and help them shop. When the pandemic hit, I didn't have to wipe the slate clean and this is bigger now than ever.

    Great thread!
