Interesting site. I randomly clicked two items, "typing business" and "bed and breakfast."
I can see how a typing business would take no resources or money, but
it would require extensive marketing to "get the word out" that the
service exists. The B&B, on the other hand, takes a lot more than
$500 and limited training.
In neither case would I be prepared to assume I`d start making bank
deposits within 30 days. And I know how much real work would be
There`s an old maxim my father would use regularly. Back when the
California Gold Rush was taking place, people from all over the country
were flocking to California, buying up land or buying deeds, all with
the expectation of striking it rich.
Only a very few people ever became wealthy by finding gold. The people
who made tons of money were those who set up shops to sell the
gold-diggers the shovels, picks, wagon wheels, flour, sugar, camping
equipment, sewing kits, and so forth.
I think the site`s an excellent idea, and it sells information. I just
have a bit of an argument on an ethical basis, with the implication
that these businesses are such simple things to start. It comes down to parsing the word "start."
Will you use sophistry or semantics? Sophistry would prove that to
"start" the business only requires a purchase of some teaching package.
The business itself hasn`t started, but the "desire" to start the
business has begun. Further sophistry would argue that without the
desire, there can be no start or would be no start, therefore "desire =
start." I disagree.
