Talking Hi all

I am a 50+ white South African male who is keen to develop a web based business to supplement (and hopefully) overtake my current income.

I am not intending to steal anyones ideas but am genuinely looking for assistance in setting up a business from South Africa. If there is anyone out there who can help me with suggestions I would really appreciate it.

I have a marketing /sales background and have several years police service (current employment).

Thanks for the opportunity to share with you all.

Hopefully I may be able to assist someone out there in what ever small way possible to improve thier business or lifestyle.

Thanks and hoping to receive a reply soon.+

Hello and Welcome!

What are some of the ideas you have? What do you love to do? What are your hobbies/interests? What is something you are willing to do that most people wouldn't?

I would suggest you start a notebook of ideas. Right everything down. Some will be stupid, some silly, some inconceivable, and some will be great! But ... the notebook will start you mind thinking about businesses all the time, and the "cream" will eventually rise to the top, and you will be drawn to something that you can do! Start there, and work work work! Good Luck! I look forward to hearing your ideas and what you decide to do with them.

Trinette

That is a fantastic idea! In fact, I think that's a great idea for people already running a business.

Welcome to the forums 50+bizman. I'm sure you'll find plenty of good ideas here. I think Trinette's idea of making use of a notebook is a great one. I do it myself all the time and it can really help. Enjoy your stay.
