I've thought that i might like to sell organic fruit and vegetables, along with other healthy foods, and also sports equipment and eco gadgets, either online or own an actual shop.<br><br>
Any other thoughts, anyone?

Something I've played with is the idea of a vegan Jenny Craig type weight loss business.<br><br>
What would you do to make your store special from your competition?

I would start a retail store with nonperishable vegan goods and a portion of the profits would go to vegan charities.<br>
That or a vegan restaurant.

Where I live, in Portland, they have the "vegan mini mall." There are four vegan shops in a row. One is a vegan tattoo parlor, one is a vegan grocery store, one is a vegan clothing store, and one is a vegan bakery. Sweetpea bakery has become quite popular. Their desserts are the best <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> Then only a few miles away there are some vegan restaurants.

When I *do* start making my living the vegany way, it will be as a lawyer under Animal Law.

Vegan dog food that was completely nutritionally sound and not full of all the maize and crap fillers that pretty much all of them are full of.<br><br>
So an actual decent dog food rather than the crap that is only available at the moment.

A vegan fast food joint or a cupcake shop. Yum!<br>
I want to show that comfort food can still be cruelty free and it might win some people over to the dark side.

Lot of vegan products are available only in a few countries, being an importer can bring big bucks.

I had an idea kind of like that. I just started for dietitian technician in college.<br><br><br>
I was working on a few ideas one I will not say but the other is there is a drive threw yogurt shop close to me that closed down and I joke that I will put in a drive threw curry shop there.

Make-up probably. Just because it is what I'm most interested in.

I would (hopefully will) start a combined vegan cafe/bakery/ice cream parlour also selling vegan products that are difficult to find in actual shops. It's not going to happen any time soon, but hopefully in the next ten years it will.

My husband and I are contemplating starting a vegan specialty salad company - egg salad, tuna salad, peanut noodle salad, etc.

I love the idea of a vegan bakery or fast food place.<br>
My first choice would be vegan Bed & Breakfast in Vermont. Or maybe on Cape Cod or any other water-front city in Massachusetts, like Newburyport. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

you guys all have great ideas! Don't let them go by the wayside.....when I'm done with my Integrative Nutrition program, I want to run a very successful Health Coaching business, but before deciding on that, I seriously dreamed of haveing a bistro and bakery <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br>
It would be neat to incorporate or have a complete holistic place with a yoga room, good solid healthy food, and the ability to Health counsel all in one place!

Well, if anyone creates an online shoe store with a broad selection, let me know. I will be customer #1. I've only been able to find sites that carry one or two brands and a limited range of styles.
