As we gear up for our second SiteDart Awesome Business Ideas Competition, we thought it would be cool to share some real life businesses that we think are awesome!
3 Awesome Business Ideas
1. I Do Now I Don't - Founder, Josh Opperman came home from work one day to find his fiancee gone, and the diamond ring he had worked so hard to buy, sitting on the coffee table. In an attempt to move on he decided to sell the ring back to a retailer. When he was offered a staggeringly low price, instead of getting mad, he launched a business. I Do Now I Don't offers opportunities to sell or buy used engagement rings, wedding bands, dresses, and jewelry online.
2. Gas Buddy - Want to find the cheapest local gas prices around? So do a lot of other people. The website was created in June of 2000 and they launched a mobile app in 2009 which was downloaded by more than 6 million people! What can we say, people love saving money on gas.
3. Rent a Coop - Ever wanted to own chickens to collect fresh eggs everyday? But you weren't sure how it would work out at your location? Rent a Coop will bring you the chickens and everything you need to raise them and educate you through the process. At the end of your 4 week rental you will have the option to buy the chickens and coop or pay the rental fee and give them back.
The above businesses are an inspiration. Normal everyday people saw a need for something and became entrepreneurs in the process. We want you to get inspired and solve a problem that you and/or others face, and make money doing it. The most successful businesses are often started when the founder finds a problem in their life, and then solves it for everyone else.
