    I like the list of business opportunities you compiled Loral. There are so many opportunities for people to get started today. I think this is an exciting time and I hope to see more people take control of their financial future by starting their own business.

    First things first, this blog has been a wonderful way to start my day and more importantly my mindset for the day! To start thinking “business” is a great way to point yourself to a productive day.
    The ideas for what business that will be growing are very helpful! Being interested in “Green Business” myself another idea is to be able to consult as to the degree of Green a business actually is. The Green “Wave” has created some real confusion in the market about what, exactly, Green is. Green washing is a term that is sadly becoming more popular as many companies want to cash in on the wave but may not necessarily be as Green as they say.
    Thanks for giving me some things to think about!
