Start with these thoughts:
  • What is it that people in Jamaica need that you can give them?
  • What can you sell online to people that don't live in Jamaica that like things from Jamaica? (Niche)

Hope that helps you get started with some ideas to go in the right direction...

Hi and welcome!

That really depends on what your interests are. Would you be good at that kind of business? Also, consider Glnutritions suggestions. Best of luck!

A few questions to help get you thinking:

Do you want to sell products or provide services?

Tourism is a big business in Jamaica, as I understand it. Can you provide some kind of product or service that would be useful or interesting to tourists? Is there a service or product you can provide to companies/people who in turn themselves provide services to tourists?

On the other hand, tourist traffic tends to be seasonal and can fluctuate wildly due to factors outside your control (weather, political upheaval, the economy). There are things to be said for working with the local crowd, who will always be there. Are there any unmet needs among the locals you might be able to satisfy (and that they can afford to pay for)?

Hi Lucky, to answer your question: what is your passion? Once you have determined that, you are ready to explore further.

Plus, get to answer this: What do you know? What skills are you adequate at? What are your strengths and weaknesses?
