LinkStuff – New Business Idea Edition

by Mike Holman

I’ve been working on a new business idea which has kept me very busy lately.  New businesses are always an exciting thing because it’s fun to fantasize about vast riches from the future success of your new baby.

The fact that most new businesses usually end up with fairly pedestrian compensation, doesn’t reduce the excitement of the latest one.

On with the links

The way you phrased my link reminded me of the Saturday Night Live bit about the “rent is too high” party. I should have used that in my post. Thanks for the mention.

Thanks for the mention Mike! Any hints on the new biz? Web related?

What is this new business idea? (You don’t have to tell me, I’m just curious lol) Sounds like it is a good one!

I love it when the entrepreneurship side of people comes alive- it’s so exciting.
