Hi folks, recent lurker,first-time-poster: I have two ideas for businesses I am interested in but I have no business experience so I am uncertain how to progress.
Most of my family is overseas (caribbean and europe) and phone calls are very expensive to my locales so I was wondering how hard it would be to start a phone card or phone service business?
My other idea is based on my background in radiography. I`d like to obtain xray/CT equipment and provide mobile services. This is an extremely expensive venture and I am looking for advise as to how to go about this. I`ve been trying to contact one of the very few companies that offer said services currently and realise they have next to no advertising as very difficult to find them.
I already know who my market will be, I need advice on funding, payment (medicare etc.), equipment (leasing vs. purchase), whether to do it alone or partner, do I quit my current full time job?, LLC. etc. The CT equipment alone is going to cost about $350K alone. I know I can make it work, just don`t know how to get it off the ground, and very cautious about who I mention it to (you guys don`t count LOL). I was thinking of trying to work for one of the existing companies (they wouldn`t be rovidng the service to the extent that I am envisioning) so that I can get more info on billing etc.
I think both business opportunities have a built in need for said services.
