"Want to start a business, but need help deciding what business"
I have always wanted to have my own business, but I think I need some help in brainstorming for an idea.
A little about me: I have about 25 years of experience as an accountant - corporate not public. I am not a CPA. I also worked for 5 years as a computer programmer, working on accounting software, but that was over 10 years ago. I'm a dinosaur by tech standards. I liked the computer work, but not necessarily the accounting.
I enjoy exercising (walking, weight training, Pilates/Yoga), but don't want to make that a career.
I also like crafts (knitting, crocheting, needlepoint), taking art classes (I'm a beginner at best), and reading. A lot of my non-fiction reading is related to health and nutrition topics.
I prefer to work alone. I wouldn't want to have a lot of public contact. Sales is really not my thing, although I do understand that any business entails selling to some degree. I am terrified of public speaking so teaching/training is out. Ideally, I would like to be able to do most of my work from home.
I like learning new things so if I needed to take some classes it would not be a problem.
