Wow, this does seem like the perfect business. ;) I honestly doubt it`s going to exist though. Especially the phone calls;
I don`t mind email support.
And I think you forget about the fact that there are businesses that require neither phone support, nor email support: rich content websites with ad revenues is one of them.
But the thing that jumps out at me the most is `regardless of my skills/abilities`. You`re not going to be able to do any of the ones you`ve listed without some very specific skill sets.
Well, I`ve been a webdesigner for about 10 years and I have the designing/programming skills to create any sort of website, from e-commerce to auctions systems.
But the concurrence is fierce among web developpers.
That`s why I want to create a highly automated site that will make money almost on its own. Again, I have all the skills for that. Only lacking the right idea.
And if you want to offer coaching, teaching, training, writing, or consultant services, you need skills in those areas. I certainly am not going to hire a coach who has no experience in the area they are coaching, at least. ;)
To me, the best option is selling intangible products.
That`s why I`ve started this new thread : http://www.startupnation.com/forums/5962/1/1
Thanks for your comments anyway :)
