I’ve been running the Ask the Experts section of bplans.com for years now, literally, since 1999. It’s a privilege to watch the flow of questions. It keeps me in touch with people, entrepreneurship, and business planning.
Some questions come up constantly. I’m going to share them on this blog, starting with the "what business should I start?" question I received today. This particular email is from a university student in a third-world country. It cites the flow of tourists and asks me "what business should I start" to deal with those people.
I’ve given my answer many times: for start-up ideas look in the mirror.
