Ideas, ideas, ideas. That is the name of the game when an entrepreneur gets one and does what they can to bring it to fruition. Today on the Top 5 at 7:45, I'll highlight some good ideas that seem to be trending, that you might benefit from in a new business endeavor.

  1. Business Services - With businesses cutting back on hiring, you may find a niche to bring them the services of human resources, marketing or bill paying in your own private business.
  2. A Testing Business - Apps, websites, e-commerce are must haves for any business these days, but oftentimes they don't work. You could test these for them and make a buck in the process.
  3. Contracting - Are you handy with tools and creative in small projects? You might find a niche in starting your own contracting business to help people around their homes with small projects and renovations.
  4. Smartphone Repair - These services are starting to prop up around the country as it costs a lot of money to repair one of these. Actually, about as much to buy a new one.
  5. Vending Machine Business - With all the health nuts out there, of which I tend to be one, you could set up a healthy vending machine with organic foods, snacks and drinks. Set it up in the right places, and the business is yours.
