Get-Rich-2015. Follow your dream. We have the top twenty businesses for you to start now!
You don’t need to have a lot of money or experience to start your own business. You need to have passion and drive. You need to be detailed oriented with a dedicated follow-through. Are you ready?
According to the U.S. Small Business Administration anyone can start a business and succeed if they have a good idea, a good target market and leadership ability. Do you have what it takes to launch your very own private gold mine? There is something for everyone in our top twenty businesses.
Over the past several years, one of the most important contributions psychology has made to the field of business has been in determining the key traits of acknowledged leaders. Tests have been used to determine what characteristics are most commonly noted among successful leaders. This list of characteristics can be used for developmental purposes to help managers gain insight and develop their leadership skills. You can use it to rate your chances of being a great leader.
Raymond Cattell, a pioneer in the field of personality assessment, developed the Leadership Potential equation in 1954. This equation, which was based on a study of military leaders, is used today to determine the traits that characterize an effective leader. The traits of an effective leader include the following:
• Emotional stability: Leaders must be able to tolerate frustration and stress.
• Dominance: Leaders are often competitive, and enjoy overcoming obstacles.
• Enthusiasm: Leaders are usually seen as active, expressive and energetic. They are often very optimistic and open to change.
• Conscientiousness: Leaders are often dominated by a sense of duty and tend to be very exacting in character.
• Social boldness: Leaders tend to be spontaneous risk-takers. They are usually socially aggressive and generally
• Self-assurance: Self-confidence and resiliency are common traits among leaders. They tend to be free of guilt and have little or no need for approval.
• Intuitiveness: Rapid changes in the world today, combined with information overload result in an inability to know everything. In other words,
reasoning and logic will not get you through all situations.
• Compulsiveness: Leaders are controlled and very precise in social interactions.
• Empathy: Being able to put yourself in the other person’s shoes is a key trait. Without empathy, you can’t build trust.
• Charisma: People usually perceive leaders as larger than life. Charisma plays a large part in this perception. Leaders who have charisma are able to arouse strong emotions in their employees by defining a vision that unites and captivates them.
Leaders are rarely (if ever) born. Circumstances and persistence are major components in the developmental process of any leader, so if your goal is to become a leader, work on developing those areas of your personality that you feel are not up to par.
Top Twenty Businesses
What Business Should You Start?
To be successful, you must launch a venture that you will love. If you love what you do, you’ll never work another day in your life. And if you enjoy operating your business, every day will be an exciting adventure. There is something for everyone in our top twenty businesses.
Thanks to our global world there is no category of business that is off-limits to you. Purchase a business opportunity, buy a franchise, launch an independently owned company from your home or outside facility. Consider taking on a partner if you lack certain talents or skills that they can provide.
Start the business you dream about! We’ve put together fifteen amazing business categories that will be hot in 2015 and into the future. We present the top twenty businesses you should consider starting now. There is something for every interest and budget. See what will work in your community. Is there a market for this business in your area? How will you reach your target customers? Do you require special permits? Conduct your own due diligence research to see if one of our top twenty businesses is viable for you.
Food businesses are hot and you don’t have to be a five star chef to get into the food industry. There are plenty of ways to get started with a food business of your own! Food definitely deserves a place on our list of top twenty businesses.
If you make a food product, sell it! Bottle that sauce, offer your custom cakes for sale or create fabulous dinners in your client’s home as a personal chef. Make sure you investigate the rules and regulations involving selling food products that you make at home. In some states you will need a Food Handler’s License. It is similar to taking a permit test to get a driver’s license.
Call the county clerk’s office in your area and see what the regulations are and you can find them online at your state’s website.
You might also have to have your home kitchen inspected by the Health Department.
You can also sell food from an established business that already has a Food Handler’s License. You can purchase sandwiches from a local food shop or deli, for example, and then resell them for a
profit at industrial parks, sport fields, etc. See if you need a permit to sell food in a public space. Again, the county clerk can answer these questions for you.
You can also bake bread for a local restaurant or catering company, bottle your salad dressing or pasta sauce and sell it at local crafts fairs and food markets. Check out the laws and print up a label of ingredients for your sauce and dressing. Go online conduct your own due diligence research to check out the requirements in your state.
If you want to tie in with a proven leader and sell their food products consider Little Jimmy’s Italian Ices & Push Carts. Their fun and colorful, crowd pleasing carts, fit in most minivans or SUVs. The push carts require no electricity or dry ice.
Your first order placed with Little Jimmy’s will include more than 6000 servings of their Italian Ice that includes no fat, no dairy, no cholesterol, and no high fructose corn syrup.
You don’t need any experience to launch this business and you can run it on weekends, part-time or full-time. Sell at fairs, crafts shows, flea markets, wherever people gather.
The startup cost is less than $4300 and you can learn more about by visiting http://www.ITALIANICE.net or call 800-763-4348.
L’il Orbits is another food company that offers a business opportunity program. The company offers donut making machines and accessories. Anyone who has walked a street fair or crafts shows, etc., has probably been lured to the booth of a L’il Donuts vendor by the aroma of fresh baked donuts.
According to the company, “Our mini-donut and pancake & crepe machines are proven money-makers, made in America and now operated profitably in over 100 countries around the globe. For more information on joining the Lil’ Orbits family of operators worldwide, click on the links above.
“Fresh, Hot Mini-Donuts have always been a popular food item at carnivals, festivals, fairs and many other outdoor seasonal events. Our customers often tell us how much fun it is to hear their customers reminisce about eating mini-donuts when they were kids.
“The Lil’ Orbits Uni-matic II pancake & crepe machine can help you add new, easy-to-prepare items to your current menu, and also improve product consistency. The Uni-Matic will cook anything you can cook on a griddle, without oil or grease.
“In addition to seasonal, outdoor events, there are hundreds of other places where our popular automated equipment can be very profitable. Here are just a few examples of where a well-placed mini-donut or pancake & crepe machine can help you become your own boss or expand your current business: coffee shops, bakeries, mall kiosks, storefronts (indoor or outdoor), sports arenas, food courts, entertainment complexes, high school sports, fundraising and much much more!”

Our obsession and love for our vehicles seems to have no signs of slowing down. Our automobiles and trucks are treated with kid gloves. Many car buyers spend in the high five figures for a vehicle and want them cared for by someone who can see to every detail.
You can start your own car detailing business and expand to include trucks, RV’s, boats, planes, scooter and motorcycles. A must for any list of top twenty businesses to consider now.
There are books on how to detail for sale on amazon.com and there are videos on YouTube that show the finer points of detailing a vehicle. You can do it on your own. Visit an auto store and take a look at the products.
If you don’t want to be completely on your own, consider buying a kit. The Detail King company sells business opportunity packages priced from $1595 to $20,495. Visit their website at http://www.detailking.com to see their six different auto detailing startup kits.
Paint Bull offers a business opportunity package that will help you become a mobile automotive repair technician.

Do an online search and see what you can learn about the business and the industry.
We all love to get home, kick back and relax. But who has the time to cater to the lawn, prune the shrubs, handle the weeding, organize the seeding and fertilizing schedule, order the mulch and put it down, and a host of other chores that caring for our landscaping and yard entails.
You can start a lucrative small business in your community taking care of these tasks. We know of a woman who was let go from her firm in Chicago, and starting with a single small gas powered lawnmower and a minivan, launched what is now a six-figure landscaping empire.
She printed up a flyer and left it everywhere: on cars, hanging on community bulletins boards, at any local establishment that would let her leave it for the taking. She placed a small ad in her local paper and offered a discount to “new customers.” Gradually, she built up her enterprise to the point where she just booked the jobs and sat back and collected the fees.
You can choose to specialize in a particular type of landscaping business –such as weed pulling-or you can run the gamut and offer it all. The choice is up to you, Boss.
By the way, weeds are a large problem for many landscapers who hire out the task to “Weeds Only” type landscape companies. You can start a “Weeds Only” business and never have to work to get jobs. Just contact the existing landscapers in your community and let them know when you are available to begin work.
Contact PLANET: Professional Landcare Network to learn more about the landscaping profession. This group represents more than 100,000 landscapers. For more info visit http://www.landcarenetwork.org/PLANET.
■ PARTY SERVICES
Businesses that cater to parties always seem to do well no matter what shape the economy is in and there are plenty of options to consider in the party services business category.
Have you been told you make a great host? Consider starting a party planning enterprise. The Event Planners Association is a great website to investigate for ideas and options. Visit http://eventplannersassociation.com/ to see their information on a wide variety of events.
If you love cocktails and even like to invent your own, why not become a freelance bartender? You can attend one of the many bartending schools located throughout the United States. Just search for Bartending Schools online and see what is available in your region. Some bartending schools offer “intensive study” so you can get your certificate of completion right away. Going to a bartending school is not a requirement to launch your own freelance bartending service, but it could help you establish credibility and make it easier to take on gigs as a bartender for a local caterer.
Other small business possibilities include: photographer, florist, dish and glass rental, chair and table rental, tents and DJ. If you are an excellent cake maker consider starting your own custom cake business.
You can also run a fun photo booth. Mojo Photo Booth offers The Original Portable Photo Booth that has been a hit at many weddings, parties and events. The booth packages begin at $3995 and take only 15 minutes to set up. They fit in any passenger car and can be run by one person. You can even purchase the booth and then rent it out to wedding planners and other party planning or catering operations. The company website can help you learn more. Visit http://www.mojophotobooth.com or call 888-484-MOJO (6656).
Small businesses that cater to kids are hot moneymakers. Parents don’t have enough hours in the day to take care of every programmed event for their children. Music lessons, sports activities, after school clubs, dance class, planning birthday parties, schools and tutoring are just a few options. Parents need help.
A number of stay-at-home Moms have launched day care centers in their homes figuring if they are home taking care of their own kids, why not get paid to watch and care for a few more. You’ll need supplies ranging from diapers and food to play things. You’ll need liability insurance and a waiver form for parents to sign. You might even need help and have to hire a few assistants to help you. Check with your local country clerk’s office to see if any special permits are required in your region of the country.
If you excelled at a subject in school or can play an instrument, consider giving classes or lessons. If you teach to a group, you’ll make more money in one hour than if you offer individual instruction.
Tutor in the child’s home to save on dressing up your own facility. Less liability, too, with this option.
If you enjoy kids but don’t want to be involved in a business working directly with them, consider starting your own Friendly Songs small business. You offer personalized music and gifts. You sell singing stuffed animals to your customers and CDs that have customized names for the children. This is a business opportunity dealer program and the company will help you get started. Visit http://www.FriendlySongs.com or call 803-485-1544 to learn more.
■ WEBSITE SALES
If you are online you can see how many sales are generated by websites. You can launch your own website and sell a product that you’ve created or sell a product that you purchase wholesale from another company. Selling online today is the equivalent of a modern day mail order venture. More than 191 million shoppers in the U.S. buy goods online. More than 87% of the world’s population has shopped online. This is a global market for your products.
There are plenty of “drop and drag” affordable websites that offers easy to use tools to create a website in less than an hour. Yola.com, weebly.com , squarespace.com or 1and1Internet.com are just a few examples of web hosting companies with tools that you can master.
What types of products interest you? If you are a biker, sell a new type of bike lock, seat or helmet. Get involved with products you love and make your small business interesting and fun.
If you are a musician, sells music books or tools to fix guitars. You can even tie in with MusiciansFriends.com and become an affiliate. You place ads on your website for their products and if a visitor to your site goes to MusiciansFriends and buys it, you receive a percentage of the profits.
Amazon.com has a similar affiliate program that you can investigate.
You can visit the alibaba.com website to view products that you can purchase from overseas and China. You should be cautious of making transactions with companies that have not been referred to you or that have a poor rating online. Google the company first and check out any complaints or negative reports. Do your homework before you purchase anything and avoid being ripped off later.
You can even start a business building websites for the almost 88% of small business owners that don’t currently have them. Investigate the website hosting services, learn the tools, build one of your own to promote your business and start selling to local entrepreneurs.
■ CLEANING SERVICES
Cleaning services come in all shapes and sizes from the sole proprietor who is out there cleaning store windows to the mega-franchise owner who operates a dozen residential and commercial cleaning businesses. There is plenty of room for opportunity with a cleaning business.
You can start your own residential and commercial cleaning service by tying in with a franchisor and using their system of doing business, or purchase supplies, place ads, build a website homepage to give your business recognition online and start shopping for customers.
You can also start a variety of other cleaning businesses.
The Master’s Touch, for example, offers a complete turnkey system so you can launch your own hard surface cleaning company. This is not a franchise. There are no royalty payments. Financing is available for qualified candidates.
Training for The Master’s Touch program is comprehensive. According to the company, “Training is one of the most important elements when starting a new business, so we’ve put together a comprehensive training program designed to properly equip you for success. You’ll learn it all.

Rotovac offers a startup carpet cleaning package for $2995. Many carpet cleaning businesses just use the old manual scrub wand method because it has been around for over 40 years. Using a manual wand requires a great deal of physical labor and only cleans from two directions, often producing only mediocre results. The manual wand is old technology and gives you nothing new or different to market to your customers.
The Rotovac company has patented special Rotary Vacuum Heads that can deep clean the carpet from all directions. The tools do all the work.
The company also offers a package to clean tile and grout and we all know what a chore that can be. Their tile and grout-cleaning package is $3995. You can book residential and/or commercial clients.
