Consider your interests when choosing a business idea. Are you tech-savvy, people-friendly, an animal-lover, a great cleaner or cook, or handy around the house?

There are a few questions to ask yourself when considering your own business.

If you're trying to find the small business idea that's right for you, ask yourself these questions:

  • What are you good at doing?
  • Where is there a need in the market?
  • What is your ideal work environment?
  • Who is your ideal client?
  • Do you have time to do the work?

Can you start your business as a side business before leaving your job?

If you have an answer to all those questions, then you may be ready to start a small business. But if you need a little inspiration, take a look at this list of small business ideas.
