Shopify got this WRONG! Entrepreneur reacts to “Lucrative” 2022 Business Ideas

Shopify recently published 26 "Lucrative and Low-Cost Small Business Ideas to Start This Year" and I needed to record this video.

Some of the ideas are okay, but many need a lot more color to make sure you don't go down the wrong path.

Check out my Wall Street Journal Bestseller "Will It Fly" to help you pick a business without wasting your time and money:

    To the *incredible person* seeing this, I wish you all the best in life❤ don’t over blame yourself, accept things and go forward. Don’t let others define what “success” is for you. Get up, learn the skills needed and get after it, all the keys to a happy life is in your hands. Keep pushing.

    print on demand is good if you find the right niche but also finding the right company. Our first p.o.d. supplier lost products and delivery times of two week long. BTW any plans to be be at Podcast Movement Evolutions this March ?

    Great video Pat! Definitely agree that at the end of the day niching down is the key to most of these business ideas. I’m currently doing the building an audience idea on YT within health and fitness tech but 1.) finding it hard to think of product/service ideas for the future since it’s mainly review based and 2.) wondering if I need to niche down further. Any thoughts?
