..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 Luck!

I have not seen many minority owned firms in that respect..One just opened near my house and was amazed that it was minority owned....

Actually, I meant it for color and gender.
Yuh find dat "people of colour and women" does tek too long, or is too much of a mouthful?

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..

Calabash: I have had a couple ideas over the years, but haven't quite pinpointed what exactly.

Pebbles: Good Luck!:D

Solidarity: Agreed on the interpretation of words...That's why I try to watch how/what I say/type to ensure it can not be misconstrued..:cool:
