    Hi Saeed.  I think its most important to pick a business you love -you'll be more likely to persist through the tough start up phase and to have the passion to keep going.

    Brainstorm a list of your interests  -choose 1 or 2 -talk to people about them -get in the conversation -and then pick one and go for it!

    Hi saeed,
    Based on your skill and ability and time you can actually spend on work from home, there is a very good and easy option of making money at no cost. All it takes is an internet connection.  These are the recommended sites where you are paid for your work on an hourly basis.
    get yourself registered for free and hit it.
    Good luck.

    As mentioned earlier. BEWARE of the internet scams. That is the best advise just starting out.

    However, there is and will be a lot of income potential to be made on the internet. There are more and more people signing on for the first time everyday and the trend is not going to stop anytime in the near future.

    Good luck



    NEVER PAY FOR TRAFFIC AGAIN!!! See what I do at my site and/or blog.

    I`ve been a full time home business consultant for 7 years.  You will find some great information on finding and starting a business at my site:

    It`s important to be very careful before you dive into an opportunity.  Don`t spend money until you have done your homework.  Beware of the scams and check with the Better Business Bureau when you find something that interests you.

    Heres a little bit more about me.

    Im 20 yrs old. I currently have about 6 thousand dollars in the bank. I live with my parents and have little living expenses.

    My passion lies in "brick and mortar" type businesses. But, because im just starting out, I plan on going the internet route first. I have all the time in the world which im currently spending on setting up a "google adwords campaign". Although I frequently get distracted by my family members I do seem to get some work done.

    Also, i have a prospective business idea: I want to purchase cars at government auction below the kelly blue book value then resell them.(Just an idea i havent even begun to do research on feasability yet)

    My short term goals are real simple;



    Be bloody, bold and resolute.

    Hello Saeed and welcome,

    It would be helpful before anyone starts giving you ideas if you gave us a little more information about you. What currently keeps you busy during the day? How much time and money do you have available to start a business? What are your skills and interests? Do you need an immediate profit? What limitations do you need to work around - a day job, small children, etc? Do you have any idea what you might like to do? These are all questions to ask yourself.

    Best wishes!
