    Think of all your interests & ask yourself if any of those could be expanded into a business. Just keep in mind...what's your expertise? What are your interests? What could you imagine yourself doing?

    By researching the prospect of starting your own business -- what it entails, what you need to know, helpful hints, etc -- you'll feel better prepared to take that plunge.

    I found some book titles that are relevant to your specific question:

    * The Best Internet Businesses You Can Start by Marian Betancourt

    * The Shoestring Entrepreneur's Guide to Internet Start-Ups by Robert Spiegel

    * Making a Living Without a Job : Winning Ways For Creating Work That You Love by Barbara Winter

    I also posted some article links in the source box.

    Hope that helps! I wish you much success & happiness in all your ventures!

    It depends on capital you can invest.If you have no capital or low capital I suggest you to start Greeting Cards Resale business.Normally after fewdays after receiving,people throw away greeting cards especially new year and X mas cards.Only the middle pages are written.To start with start collecting used cards from friends and relatives.Inside pages can be got printed in press or PC .The new pages can be fixed/pasted after removing old used pages.The cards should look like new.You can resale the cards at very low price.Gradually you purchase old cards at low price through agents who will go door to door and procure used good cards,on commission basis.This will give you good profit margin.I know many people are doing this business and making profit.

    Taxi service just for the Ladies. One opened up near where I live called 'Pink Ladies' and it is an absolute hit.

    Gives peace of mind to the customers knowing they are going to travel safely & at the same time the owner (yourself) are 50% better off at understanding your customer base.
