Great ideas. I am planning to build a small business this year and your ideas would give me hint on what is the right business to build. I am planning to build pet care services since I am a professional veterinarian. However, I still have a lot of thing to accomplish in order to pursue my plan. I hope I could build it this year.

Hi Jim,
It is fun that you have included a geek oriented business in your list of other service based industries. Being a mobile application development enthusiast, I want to learn to tackle challenges in the mobile development process. It is the most interesting and fascination niche that requires presence of mind and intelligence with hard work.

I agree with you. Currently I’m working on a series of articles on mobile applications in the manufacturing industry. I think mobile is a very exciting place to be and has a lot of opportunity for the near future.
