    What Kind of Business Do You Own?

    What Kind of Business Do You Own? I've always wanted to own a restaurant and a clothing line, but I'm stuck running my computer business right now. It's hopefully going to pay for my restaurant and clothing line.

    I don't own any business currently on my name (underage) but I've been managing several business which includes a Job Portal and a local shopping portal. Though, I've always wished to start up a manufacturing industry as the profit earned in those industry are high.

    I own an Internet marketing company as well as a record label. Spend a lot more time on Internet marketing than music at the moment, though.

    A record label? Wow, that would be a cool job/business to have. Don't you think that was a bad move though? A lot of the newer labels are going down due to the fact that people can get the same quality of sound through the internet.

    Thanks Jerlene It's a pretty fun gig. The music industry has had to adapt over the last few years and change the way in which we make our share of the profits. The sad thing is most labels can't adapt and they end up going under... If you want to be successful, you have to realize that a good portion of your music is going to be downloaded illegally and figure out ways to work around it. We've found that not being stingy with music and even giving it away for free sometimes ends up increasing fan loyalty. Fans appreciate what you do for them and often end up buying the albums afterwards.

    Of course, it helps that I also own an Internet marketing agency that's capable of promoting our artists the right way...

    I want to have a business but in nanotechnologies. Reason: fast expanding field of technology, all computers, microchips etc. become smaller and smaller. I think in 10-20 years nanotechnologies will own the market, enginnering, medicine etc. So it's not only interesting but profitable too. Any tips for start?

    Ah from Houston, TX huh? I lived in Texas for over 20 years. Great state.
    Nanotechnology, software and Internet technology are going to dominate
    the future. I don't know too much about the nanotechnology industry but I
    have no doubt that there's money in it. Wouldn't know how to get started
    in that business though.

    I own a small country store and small restaurant. Most of our products are are from local farms and producers.

    Owning a restaurant is a lot of work. You might want to check out the national restaurant association web site for a lot of good information. http://www.restaurant.org/research/
