If you're looking to start a new business, medical transcription is one of the best options out there right now.

If we’ve learned anything in the last few years, it’s that nothing is the same when it comes to our jobs, and starting a new business in 2022 is very different too.

There’s a lot to consider when you’re thinking about starting a new business, but fortunately there are a lot of opportunities out there now.

Business News Daily put together a list of 21 Great Small Business Ideas recently, and it got us thinking about our favorites.

“If you are thinking of starting a business in 2022, it is critical to take the new normal into account,” Max Freedman said in his BusinessNewsDaily.com piece. “The COVID-19 pandemic has changed so much about how people consume products and services. While starting a retail business or restaurant might have been good ideas previously, you might want to reconsider those thoughts until you see how the next year plays out. Instead of more traditional businesses, think about ones that can support how people live their lives now.”

We went through Max’s list and picked out some of the business ideas that jumped out to us most.

“You want to start a business, but you’re having a tough time articulating your idea. If you want to become an entrepreneur, you need inspiration. It all starts with an idea that has room to grow over time.”
