    If you are so lazy you can't actually formulate a well thought out question giving enough detail so people can help you, then my advice is don't start a business.

    This just proves this forum is absolutely useless, I'm looking for positive feedback not bullocks.

    Maybe a barber shop, car insurance company, Classified ads website or become a Plasterer.

    You wont get it with that attitude, hence my advice that you are not cut out for business.

    There's nothing in your OP that anyone can give feedback to.

    Is this the same chap that started multiple threads about how to invest a big sum of money that got gradually bigger and bigger, and then eventually asked for “millionaires only” to give advice about how to invest £100,000?

    How about a barber that also sells car insurance? It ensures a regular supply of potential clients and gives you a bit of steady cash-flow to boot.

    Or how about a linked business.

    Barber and wig seller?
    Car dealership and car insurance business?
    Marriage counsellor and fishing tackle business. :)

    If you need an income from the business immediately then buying an established business will be the only way.

    A burger van, cleaning business, valeter, that sort of thing should be available at that sort of budget.

    As for what it is, that really depends on your business experience and skills.

    He doesn't have any of either as proven by his insightful posts like

    2017 - "Any successful profitable businesses you can start with £5000?"

    and

    2018 - "Simple Successful Business ideas?"

    He's persistent - that's a start at least. Many people with actual real good ideas and insane skills give up after 5 minutes.

    Asking the question again and again isn't persistence, its just annoying.

    Persistence would be taking any of the recommendations they got back in 2017 and actually working hard to make it work.
