If you had the cash, what business would you start?

This is the forum for those who believe that there are other options to gangs and violence and hope to see young people make better choices about their future. Where does change begin?

Suppose that you had the right amount of money, and you wanted to start your own business. What type of dream business would you really like to start? A real attainable business which would satisfy not only your family needs, but also one which has always been there in back of your mind.

TOMMY'S HAMBURGER JOINT, there ain't nothing like that down here in DAGO.

Can't even get a decent hot pastrami sandwich from these Yuppy Italians down here, lol.

I always be hitting up anyone going up to L.A. to bring me a couple.

-I'd buy some land, build some commercial structures on it, and then rent the spaces out. I'd also put my own little vegetarian/vegan store in there somewhere (basically, i'd own a shoppping center).

-Open a Jazzy/Neo-Soul type club (w/ open mic. nights for spoken word).

-Build a homeless shelter.

-Build a 'spiritual center' as opposed to a church, with youth programs, adult programs, learning centers, and community outreach.

-Start a record label (Production, Distribution, Manufacturing, Promotion/Marketing, Legal, Studio, and Design).

-Build an apartment complex.

*There's alot of things running through my mind. It's not really about making money, but more about doing what i love to do while having the opportunity to help some people advance and become aware of the potential in themselves.

LOL why you still loccin' then? I don't mean leave your homies back in the hood, but I mean, you can hang with them and not actively bang, the point is to hustle until you can get a legitimate hustle going, and you've done that, and you done that well.

Recycling centers I know make money in LA, all those people need that money, expecially the homeless.

Quizno's in Vegas? Lol that seems kind of random, but owning ANYTHING is Vegas will make $$$, so many tourists.

I would incorporate as an enterprise solution provider offering enterprise business and technology solutions to businesses if I had the capitalization to launch that. After the corporation obtained profitability, I would expand into real estate, property management, and financial services.

In other words, you would BS/overcharge large companies, then take the profits to invest elsewhere :lol:
