In these times of uncertainty, I would like to share with you several ideas of businesses to start in uncertain times.

Eunice’s note:

As in all other businesses, we should first do our homework, practice due diligence and educated risks focusing on our talents, interests, our calling and do not forget, our bottom-line. Do not also forget that in everything you do, you should put God first and He will crown your efforts with success.

God speed,

Eunice
PS- I already took the liberty of annotating some entries to fit our region/country.

Top Businesses to Start in a Sluggish Economy
 
It may seem counterintuitive, but starting a business during a recession can reapsome big rewards. In fact, studies indicate that more people are taking theentrepreneurial plunge despite the economic slowdown. Less competition forcustomers and lower marketing costs can make a sluggish economy one of thebest times to start your business. Here are a few businesses that even thrive intough times.
1. Debt Collection

While debt collection is not an especially pleasant business, it's onethat generally does well during economic downturns. As an added bonus, youhave the option of working out of your home as an independent contractor orworking for a debt collection agency.
2. Healthcare Products

complementary and other therapies there-other than conventional or medicalintervention. Siyempre, andito na yung mga whitening, bleaching and anti-agingproducts. An aging population whose health is declining is going to purchasehealthcare products and services—recession or not. And, with more healthrelated products and services available than ever before, this is a business that issure to thrive.
3. Job Search Agency
 Actually sa Google, isa sa top 10 ang word na job sa search engine words mostcommonly searched. Here in the Philippines, the last time I searched forinformation regarding this, you need at least 1 Million Pesos bond sa POEA, well,that is kung gusto mong may international staffing service ka, which is likely, thepreferred choice, go abroad than local lang.When people lose their jobs, they often turn to employment agencies or jobsearch firms. If you are a people person with a lot of industry contacts and aknack for matching out-of-work employees with potential employers, then thistype of business might be a good choice for you.
4. Mediator
 In tough economic times, many people turn to mediators rather than attorneys tosettle disputes simply because they are less expensive. If you're skilled atnegotiating, this may be the business opportunity you are looking for.
5. Security Firm
 Security firms are doing a booming business, but the security business is not justabout security guards. It's also about performing security and background checksfor employers.
 
6. Computer Repair
 Computers are a fact of life and so is computer repair. The good news is that acomputer repair business doesn't depend on whether the economy is good orbad. If you are the go-to person when a friend's computer goes bust, then thecomputer repair business might be a good fit. It's also possible to join a franchiseoperation like Geeks on Call. Computer repair shop hindi computer stores hah?Kasi I have heard from my expat friends na the computer shop store is alreadysaturated making it very difficult for newbies to stay in business kasi nga mababalang talaga ang profit margin dito tapos marami ka pang ka kumpitensiya.

Electronic, web and digital marketing includingthose putting up their websites, must see to it talaga that they have visitors athindi lang visitors, these visitors should also turn into their customers.
8. Web Entrepreneur
 You don't have to be a computer geek to become a web entrepreneur; all youneed is a good idea or product. You can create a website yourself or hire a webdesigner to do it for you.
9. Pawn Broker
Ok, not everyone is cut out to be a pawnbroker, but pawnshops are typicallybusinesses that do well during recessions. A pawnbroker takes merchandise ascollateral on a loan, albeit a loan with exorbitant interest rates.
