A lot of people, especially in a recession, or when times are tough with their regular career, will consider starting their own business and here is where we will tell you about business opportunities, and how you can get into a business of your own.  There will be business opportunities in service industries and retailing and wholesaling.  Consider these carefully, because going into business is not easy -- it needs commitment and sometimes financing to set up the business and to get it going before sales can carry you.  Observe the business if you can and talk to others in similar businesses for information and to learn from their experiences.


Update January 25, 2018  Before you take the plunge of starting your own business be sure you are ready to make the commitment and that you have the financing to set up the business and to get it going before sales start coming in.  As we know, many banks have tightened their requirements for loans and it can be difficult to get traditional bank loans now. So consider alternative financing firms which could have money sources that are not bound to the strict underwriting guidelines that banks have. These alternative sources for loans sometimes can provide quicker approval and funding than commercial banks, and might have different requirements for loans that might fit start-ups better.


Update August 21, 2011  Here's an opportunity for you to set up your own beauty boutique selling the custom nail polish that Hollywood celebrities have used professionally on TV and movie sets and personally.

Tammie Ly has announced the relaunch of her Chinoiserie Nail Lacquer for both retail and wholesale customers and this allows individuals to buy her unique beauty product direct at wholesale prices and set up their own business selling it at flea markets and in their own stores and even at their offices and workplaces.  The unique and custom blended nail polish in the Chinoiserie line has been a favorite of Hollywood celebrities for both personal and professional use. Tammie Ly and her nail polish have been featured in some of the top beauty, fashion and celebrity magazines including Allure, InStyle, Cosmopolitan, Us, and she has appeared on various fashion television programs.

What makes her Chinoiserie Nail Lacquer famous is the exquisite shades and the ability for custom blends to match any outfit for any Hollywood production.  And now you can sell this amazing beauty secret in your own store.  It is also available for wholesale distribution to quality retailers, spas and salons.  Custom blended colors are strictly supervised by Tammie Ly herself, and special orders are available in addition to more than one-hundred custom colors now in stock.

For information about direct sales including wholesale accounts, contact the company at (818) 752-4347 or go to to see color samples on their website.  The product line is also available at The Chinois Beaute Bar located at 12668 Ventura Blvd., Studio City, California 91604.
