Want To Start Your Own Business In 2006? Get Into The Travel Industry

While the economy has been good to some people, it has been less than stellar for others. Many people are feeling squeezed between high energy prices and jobs that are always cutting back.

NOW may be exactly the right time to start your own home-based business. Unlike a traditional brick and mortar business, you don't need to borrow thousands to get your home-based business started. You won't need to rent an office, hire employees, or even pay much tax.

The next question is, what kind of business should I get into? Let me suggest you take a good, hard look at the travel industry. It's simply the largest business in the world, accounting for more than $5 TRILLIION in sales each year -- and growing by a whopping 25% annually.

Now it doesn't take a CPA to know you can make a great home-based income even you just get the crumbs off that $5 Trillion table. And new developments in the travel industry are making that easier than ever.

Vast groups of vacationers are joining together to create unprecedented bargaining power.


Airlines, hotels, resorts, and golf courses are always in hot competition with each other. When a large association of vacationers shows interest, these vacation companies offer their best deals.

The association will say "We'll tell our members to buy from you -- IF you'll give us your best deal." A luxury hotel, for example, will often let members stay for just $200 to $400 PER WEEK.

Combine those super low travel rates with the vast number of people who are vacation these days, then mix in all the cold weather we've been seeing nationwide, and you've got a stampede of new prospects to tropical vacation destinations.

Base your new home-based business on that huge trend and you'll earn some serious cash in 2006.
