7 Small Businesses You Don’t Want to Start
These Businesses Were Great in Their Time
The title of this article is a bit misleading. These aren’t the absolutely worst ideas for starting businesses. They were fine ideas for starting a business in their day, as were film developing, video stores, dial-up internet services, and horse-drawn carriages.
