Hi Mohd,

I just finished my website that details how I made $2 million investing using the investment ideas I've come up with. They are based on some things Warren Buffett's started with some help from the hedge fund's spin on his idea.. I started a company, The Dean Group to work with people like you.

Take a look and hopefully we can talk.

I have a a great concept for you and it is in item business. To be honest you will only need 200k and get a great return on your investment and great exit strategy and most important your money is secured. Not too people mention exit and you will have the opportunty to do so but won't because of its expansion capabilities. Its in a great location and best business sector of town. Contact if you are still searching.

Mohd Ahmed,

Congrats on your new business venture. I wish we could tell you what the safe business is now a days but to perfectly honest there is none. Not even in the funeral home industry. I own a funeral home and people just aren't dying! No pun intended. Honestly the best advice we can give you would be to find an industry you love, do the research on that industry ,and acquire a buisness after thorough research. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us.

Try a deli and/or diner. It's hard work, but good rewards and fun. Plus in the right area it is an excellent investment that will grow. And you can do this anywhere there are people. We doesn't like to eat great food?

Mr. Ahmed, obviously when you tell people you have $300,000, you can see you will get a lot of input. My only caution is that your question can produce some terrible conclusions. Some of the most stable SMALL businesses I have seen recently have been in three (3) areas: Liquor Stores, Discount (Dollar-like) Stores and some Fast Food. BUT...not all do well.

The key in almost any business is LOCATION. I have even seen McDonald's franchises fail, because of poor locations. There are also trends that can affect some businesses that seemed to be very stable or growing. For example, donut sales dropped when the low-carb diets became a fad, and the current media attention to obesity can have a future impact, as well.

These trends normally do not last, but they can be something that would worry you if they occured when you first start or buy a business and you are struggling in the first couple of months. So I would pay attention to future trends, as much as current issues.

As for Real Estate, small deals can be better than larger. There are a LOT of analysts who say the Commercial Real Estate market is still due for a crash. So, the smaller and more careful about the tenants you can be, the better chance you have of avoiding the down side of that market correction.

In Residential Real Estate...I don't know a whole lot about that. It is a growing Rentor market, particularly with all of the foreclosures out there. But getting loans as a landlord, and dealing with the management side of Residential properties are both nightmares, as far as I am concerned. But that last comment is more of a personal bias, and not really a business concern. If you can deal with the people in that context, good for you!

Finally, back to your original question, there are a lot of GOOD businesses. SAFE is another consideration, but I would be very careful not to simply think in terms of ANY business being safe; you need to look at each opportunity, itself. The local market may be very different - good or bad - from the national picture.

Keep a huge part of your savings and get a good Edgemaster Mobile Sharpening business. Work it for awhile then get another or two or three. Grow the business with the money the business makes then keep your eyes open for the big hit when it comes along.

Hello Mr. Ahmed, I have several sellers interested in selling relocatable businesses with products and services used by consumers every day. Industries such as health related, cell phones, membership services etc. are all very good investments even during a bad economy. The ones that I have have financials to prove their income. Make sure you see the financials of any business you decide to purchase and not just a "projected" amount of income. Any questions, you can contact Angie at, best of luck to you.

Mohd, I would suggest to look into healthcare and auto repair. I have been in both industries and still continue to be in the auto repair industry. People get sick and cars break down in any economic conditions. I'll be more than happy to discuss further.
