I've never had it, but friends from other parts of the country tell me about "Jamba Juice" - sounds like a neat product that would catch on here.

Default Well

I had a wedding planning business and at the time I loved it! I also owned a few other ones that were fun so I have no regrets there..kind of been there and it is hard work owning your own biz. The only other place I would like to have is a high end shoe store! Not likely to ever happen though! I would buy up all the shoes and wouldn't have any left for the customers!

Now my husband would have a music store or a woodworking shop

I could go for the art studio part. I have a very, very small crafts business now and I could buy into your spa. I'd do the pottery and fabric art section. This would be a dream come true!

Some type of business to provide tours of the lake by boat. Bring people out and just show them around Lake Norman from the water side.

What a great idea! You better make a move on that one before someone else takes it!
