    Your own Business...

    ..this has come up in a few forums and conversations - the need for more people to focus on owning their own business...So I am curious...

    What business would you like to own, if you do not already?
    If you already own one, what field is it in?

    Good Question!

    Actually, I meant it for color and gender.

    That's great!

    Good Luck!

    Graphic arts was one of my interests, but never quite got there..Too much requested of me for the school of design

    Actually, didn't want to give specifics to pigeon hole the statement.

    For example - using "people of colour and women" would mean that I was only speaking of "women of colour" thereby excluding "men of colour".

    Interesting difference of perspective. i take "people of colour and women" to mean all people of colour (women & men) and white women....or in other words "the global majority."

    I have many ideas. Computer consulting, auto shop, sensual massage parlor, Computer Hardware, Nightclub to name a few..

    All I need know is capital, which I can get through government grants. And a solid team with a business plan..
