She has been making on average in 2014 around $500 per month in income from cakes for children’s parties, weddings and local events with all business coming via Facebook but 2015 she will be stepping it up to triple turnover and will start a small stall at a local Saturday market.

Product Business Idea #2 [051] FINGER SOCKS

Product Business Idea #2 [051] FINGER SOCKS

I was blown away by the courage of an American guy called Cheong Ng who had an idea for a kids toy and without hardly any capital set out to turn it into an product and sell it. He faced supplier disasters, large corporates trying to steal his idea and send him out of business, conmen and more – but now he is worth circa £80,000,000!  I am sure you have heard of a loom bands! The image above is my hand with some adult finger sockz. This could be a kids kit where they buy the kit and knit their own or you could just sell them in different colours or even materials – spandex, lycra etc. I would say this – kids loves her finger sockz.

Product Business Idea #4 [053] ‘DATE’ SPREAD BEAUTY PRODUCT

Product Business Idea #4 [053] ‘DATE’ SPREAD BEAUTY PRODUCT

This sounds crazy but I love dates, mejdool dates to be clear and the health and natural benefits from eating dates are amazing.

Product Business Idea #5 [054] WATERBUTT FENCE

Product Business Idea #5 [054] WATERBUTT FENCE

I know two older men who are geniuses in their chosen field and both of them over a course of 5 years told me about this same idea for a water butt fence – yet nobody has done it!

Product Business Idea #6 [055] SLOB CLOTHING

Product Business Idea #6 [055] SLOB CLOTHING

I know everyone has their “relaxing clothes” or slob clothes as I hear my friends call it – but usually these are a hoody and some jogging bottoms. How about coming up with a brand but also going over the top in the clothes – I’m not talking more onesies which have swept the globe but instead coming up with a half-quilt half-dressing gown, a blanket you can get into and walk about – something weird that will attract attention but also feel good wearing.

Product Business Idea #7 [056] FARMER DRONE SURVEYS

Product Business Idea #7 [056] FARMER DRONE SURVEYS

Drones came out and everyone went mad – but nobody (not even Amazon could figure out how to make money from them) – but one promising use for them is assisting farmers to survey their land, livestock and crops regularly enabling them to make better decision and act faster to environmental challenges. US startups are getting a lot of funding and its only a matter of time before the rest of the world will adapt what these guys are doing. Even winemakers and vineyards are deploying drones to monitor their grapes.

Product Business Idea #8 [057] RE-INVENT THE BUMBAG (FANNY PACK)

Product Business Idea #8 [057] RE-INVENT THE BUMBAG (FANNY PACK)

How stupid is this idea! I know but it’s these stupid ideas that make millions (like googles for dogs) and there is a trend going on where we’re bringing back old stuff like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles! But I think bum bags that can do more – like maybe charge your mobile so it becomes a wearable! Aim them at kids and you can’t go wrong!

Product Business Idea #9 [058] HANDMADE SHOES

Product Business Idea #9 [058] HANDMADE SHOES

A friend of mine was wearing the best shoes i had ever seen to a party some months back and when i asked him where he had got them from he said Argentina and they are handmade shoes just for him. It took them 3 days to make and he paid $60 for them. Shoes like that in the UK would normally retail at £500+. They looked like the kind of shoes James Bond would wear! I did some research and found some South American show makers who we’re now turning to the internet to be found – you could easily connect with some of these people and resell their shoes, even put your own brand on them. At the same time you could help them prosper. I actually ordered some shoes from south america and they even emailed me instructions on how to measure my feet. They went cold for a while and I thought i had been done and then all of a sudden these amazing shoes turned up in the post – they feel amazing to wear and I think they make me dance better!

Product Business Idea #10 [059] iBEACON SOLUTIONS FOR THE BLIND

Product Business Idea #10 [059] iBEACON SOLUTIONS FOR THE BLIND

iBeacons came out and like most technology people went crazy and then not much happened. I personally got involved with a startup in the UK who was trying to deploy iBeacons into retail stores but it never took off. iBeacons would be a perfect solution for signposting various things around a retail store for the blind. Link it with an app and it could provide a lot of information on where they are and what products or services we’re present. iBeacons are there, the technology is there and now it is waiting for practical solutions like this to be deployed.

Product Business Idea #11 [060] BOX SUBSCRIPTION BUSINESS

Product Business Idea #11 [060] BOX SUBSCRIPTION BUSINESS

Subscription is a huge business opportunity. Let me show you example – a healthy snack box called Graze and also a perfume sample called The Perfume Society. Then there is the shaving subscription services started by the awesome Dollar Shave Club and recently an american entrepreneur who bought a failing subscription business and has turned it around – see the inner working of a subscription business here.  Then there’s various pet food and pet toy subscription boxes, chocolate, beer, coffee, tea, nuts, sex toys – anything! Do your research and find a gap that isn’t being sold as a subscription service.

Product Business Idea #12 [061] UBER DRUNK 

In this day and age of instant task companies, food deliveries with in the hour and a plethora of other stuff you can do instantly with an app, so why isn’t there a service that when you drive to the pub and have more than you should have you can’t pull out your app and order a service where a driver is dropped off at the pub and then drives you and your car home safely. Ok so this would definitely be a premium service but if you drive a £100,000 Jaguar then this is worth getting that car home.

If you love pets then why note turn one of your spare bedrooms into a pet hotel suite and advertise your services locally via local press who would love to feature your business! When people go on holiday and don’t their pet they usually find a friend or relative to look after their pet but why not put them into a pet hotel where they will be spoiled with walks, play time, love, their own room and other amazing stuff so they get a holiday also.

Product Business Idea #14 [063] PRODUCT PLACEMENT SELFIES

Ellen took to the stage and used a Samsung to take a selfie – yet she own’s an iPhone as seen when she posts an image on her social media channels “with an iPhone”. We shouldn’t be surprised at product placement in selfies. The celebs in selfies is done and would be hard to get into but how about tapping into the 888 billion pictures that we will take with our smartphones over the next year.

Product Business Idea 066 CAFFEINE INDUCED CHOCOLATE

Product Business Idea #17 [066] CAFFEINE INDUCED CHOCOLATE

I love chocolate (although it has to be milk-chocolate being from 10 miles from Cadbury World!) and I think I have a small addiction to caffeine and especially on days like today where i’m sat in front of my Mac from 0700am – midnight I could see caffeine infused chocolate a winner! I would recommend trying to make your own than having it mass produced at first. Make them and send them me!

Product Business Idea 067 GOURMET MUSELI/OATS

Product Business Idea #18 [067] GOURMET MUSELI/OATS

I think when you hit 30 you do start seriously questioning what goes into your mouth. Breakfast is most missed meal out of them all and the most importance (according to some nerds). My tip is always have a good healthy breakfast and if i cheat later in the day then so be it. Oats, muesli are a great slow burning energy source and help keep you regular! Last year I converted so many people to eating oats and muesli on a camping trip and then a video that went viral around our network of friends that now people are making their own recipes and its just always a topic of conversation. If you want to launch a nice food business – go gourmet with breakfasts!

Product Business Idea 068 SELF-EXCLAMATION OIL

Product Business Idea #19 [068] SELF-EXCLAMATION OIL

So I used an image of a female but this could easily also be for people like me! I had a scare when I was just 21 and I can tell you I check myself regularly now. Last year I had a good friend who had to have a testicle removed and he never checked himself – he was in a lot of pain and discomfort and thats how he first found out so as we get older now all of the social group who we hang out with does monthly checks. So an idea could be for couple where you sell either a body oil, or body cream which can help facilitate a body check that you can do with each other – make it fun! With every bottle of oil they get some instructions like above – or maybe its a free book you give away as lead generator that sells the body oil.

Product Business Idea 069 RUNNING BRAS FOR MEN (I’M SERIOUS!)

Product Business Idea #20 [069] RUNNING BRAS FOR MEN (I’M SERIOUS!)

So I started running this year and nobody told me about the raw nipple stuff! It really put me off and took me a few days to get over it! I bought some nipple caps of amazon but they come off once you get going and then at a half-marathon a guy told me of a sports bra he wears which got from the ladies department at Marks & Spencer! I’m not sure what the guy is wearing in the image but i can’t find one and if you do make this – I will buy one from you.

Product Business Idea #21 [070] CUSTOM NICHE BREATH FRESHNER

My girlfriend loves these and before she would always carry chewing gum and extra strong mints so if she had something wild like garlic mushrooms she had the extra strong but if it was a coffee then she could pop a chewing gum.

Product Business Ideas #23 [072] INDOOR WINDOW CLEANER

My mother pays £70 thats $110 in good old dollars every 3 months for a guy to come in and steam clean her windows. She only pays the guy to clean the outside windows £20! Work that out! The guy that steam cleans the inside windows told my mum he has never been busier and its because nobody is doing it and people don’t want to do it.

Product Business Ideas 075 3D EMPLOYEE AUDIT

Product Business Ideas #26 [075] 3D EMPLOYEE AUDIT

I can’t find it now but 37 Signals invested in or started up an employee audit business and then spun in out some years ago and the lady behind was making a fortune with it. Anyway I think the good old fashioned employee audit where an external consultant comes in and speaks to employees to uncover the real feeling and issues is valid more today than ever as everything is done online. You could charge a premium for this sort of stuff e.g. $1,500 per day if not more so do a few days each week.
