In today's economy, it's definitely tought to start your own business, but it can be done.  In fact, I have many friends who have done it.  From painters and plumbers to tattoo artists and liquor store owners it's not entirely impossible to start your own business here in Abilene.  With this week's Question of the Week, we ask you, if you could open up a business in Abilene, what kind of business would it be? As I said, I have many friends who have opened up their own businesses.  Some have been successful, some have not been so successful.  But, regardless, they have tried to better their life by working for themselves and that is cool.

I have thought about opening a business before in Abilene but just never could think of what kind of business I should open up.  I mean, there are a ton of restaurants already in town and there is just not a huge market for a pet grooming shop that has sumo wrestlers grooming the pets.

So, I ask you, whether it be a restaurant, a tattoo shop,  an ice cream shop, or whatever, if you could open up a business in Abilene, what kind of business would it be?

Here is what some of you have already said.

So, what are your thoughts?  If you could open up a business in Abilene, what kind of business would it be?
