What is the criteria of an “Ideal Business”?

Share and Enjoy !


Most of my readers know that I prefer real estate investing over owning any business. But I am involved in many businesses such as my real estate syndication, the education company, the tax reduction company, the real estate management company and soon we will be launching a full fledged crowd funding website and portal. In all of my business listed above there is a direct connection to REAL ESTATE. As I analyzed each business I took time to compile a list of criteria for an “Ideal Business”. Please read it and add to it as you see fit in the comments below.

Here is my list so far:  

  • Unlimited Global Market
  • Product needed by people (a basic human need)
  • Low to no market price resistance
  • Profitable through residual income
  • Unique values not available anywhere else
  • Minimum labor
  • Low overhead
  • Low inventory requirements
  • Low capital cost requirements
  • Low to no credit required
  • No equipment
  • Income in cash (no account receivables)
  • Fewer to no government regulations or intervention
  • No complicated permits or licenses to own or operate
  • Portable – movable or can be handled from anywhere
  • Interesting, fun, intellectually stimulating
  • Truly helps others
  • Compounds over time
  • Frees your time – controlling schedule
  • Several avenues of profit
  • Low taxes (incentives and rebates)
  • Easy to pass on (to loved ones)
  • No direct exchange of unit of time for unit of income
  • Can be systematized for predictable work and returns
  • Can be automated through people and processes
  • Can be leveraged (bank desirable)
  • Can be scaled and expanded through duplication (going public)
  • No special degree or complicated/on going education
  • Can work through different economic cycles (up and down markets)
  • Gives you a great reputation and support from others

Again, feel free to add to it in case you feel I missed something. And BTW if you know what kind of business that could be— please share it with everyone you know. The closest I came up with was real estate.
