Creative and Unique Business Ideas

Hey you don’t have to start the same kind of business as everyone else! There are plenty of creative and unique businesses you can start and in this article I’ll show you some of my favorites.

I’m Bob Adams and I’ve started over a dozen businesses. And I have a Harvard MBA. Most of my businesses I started with less than $2,000 and I was always scraping and cutting corners to get by! So I know what it’s like to start a business. But I find that if you can find a business idea that is a little more unique or creative that it might be less competitive and it will certainly be more fun!

So take a careful look at this list and the lists in my other articles. And choose your business idea carefully. Then try not to be in a rush to start your business. I think that’s very important. I’m big believer in first learning how to start a business. And then also carefully planning your business out – including developing a well thought out business plan.
