I remember when I was a small child growing up in central California. The summers were very hot but I loved it. At 6 years old I had a lemonade stand in front of our house. I made about thirty cents a day. In the winter time I sold TV guide magazines, in the spring I sold flower seeds and much of the year I had a paper route. As young as I was I always thought about how I could make money. What is the best business ideas? Let’s take a look.

In 1948 two brothers had a barbecue restaurant that seemed to sell more hamburgers than any other menu item. Their name was McDonald. When the workers were not satisfied that the restaurant would make it, the McDonald brothers begged them to stay and promised to share the wealth. Their Idea was a franchise which grew large and continues to grow today.

Bill Gates started out getting expelled from school when he hacked into the school’s mainframe. Later he was called back as a consultant to help prevent future hacks. This led to his many ideas for different programs and Microsoft.

In 1923 Walt Disney and his brother had an idea to create a silent video series called The Alice Comedies. This led to the Disney version of Alice in wonderland. After this it grew into the multimillion-dollar business it is today.

With very little money, Ben Cohan and Jerry Greenfield decided to open an ice cream parlor in a rundown gas station in Burlington (City in Vermont) in 1978. In 2000 Unilever bought it for 326 million dollars.

Some might say it was easier back then but I don’t think so. As I travel I am seeing so many opportunities like blogging, exporting, online businesses etc. There is a new world to be found everywhere.
