Have you ever started your own business? If not, would you like to?

Have you ever started your own business? If not, would you like to?

No, but who knows if such an opportunity could arise in the future...

My father, his GF, and I started our own Bakery, it was exhausting but a fun experience. Unfortunately the business never took off and we lost more than we gained financially, but I don't regret it.

I've thought about it a lot. It'd be too big a leap though because I'd have no idea what I'm doing. Also I don't have the money. And I'd feel too bad firing anyone.

I think if I were to start a business it'd be in retail arbitrage. My friend actually does this for a living and makes pretty good money from it. Also sells an online course on how to get started, lookup "ecom Tom" on YouTube.

Don't think this counts, but I have some selling accounts on Amazon and eBay, when I had lots to sell I made close to £2000 in a year - don't really have anything left to sell now so I just sell my old games when I'm done with them (which is quite nice as it means that my games end up only costing me like £5). However, I do eventually want to be doing my own independent consultancy (in health and safety and operational compliance) for small businesses.

No, the things I would have joy to offer are not asked for, so I could not make a living.
