    In this technological age, it is easy to think that businesses should be related to technology. But I think that handmade and other types of businesses are slowly entering the business scene.

    • There’s just so many different options out there – so it’s important that people don’t assume that they HAVE TO go the tech route

  2. Along the same lines as personal chef, food trucks are really popular right now and Millennials especially are seeking out new place to eat all the time.

    • So true – and there aren’t as many costs involved with starting a business like that as there would be with a traditional restaurant

        It is funny that you are mentioning food trucks. I have started a site together with some people, called, StreetFoodGuiden. It is in Swedish. We have seen that it is a bit of a challenge to start a food truck here in Gothenburg, with permits, road and other agency fees, etc.
