A mobile still and methane digester. heat from an internal combustion engine distills the alcohol, the evaporation and condensation of distillation power a compound steam engine, distilled alcohol goes to internal combustion engine, fiber turned to methane in digester, methane goes to internal combustion engine. Continuous fermentation and harvesting capability for bonus points.

Land to build a trailer park. They're super popular here in the deep south because people are poor and stupid. I'd get space for about 100 trailers, let folks use the space for their own trailer and put in some of my own for renting out. Then I'd build my house way in the back with its own entrance and lord over the people paying me tribute..

Own an RV park for tourists
Try to develop a low-cost water purification system for rural properties that is better that what's on the market now.
I'd hunt for undervalued or distressed residential / commercial properties. Develop and sell, or lease. I'd probably never rent out residential properties... too many horror stories.
Buy properties with good natural resource extraction (water, gas, sand, aggregates, lumber, etc).
Buy undervalued farmland and produce cash crops.

Well if you had a steam engine that could also distill water, you would kill two birds with one stone, and the energy to heat wouldn't be wasted by distillation. You could even have the steam engine pump water for an reverse osmosis system.

a very simple way to value (and I mean very, extremely simple) valuation is to divide the profit by the yearly treasury yield. assuming a current rate at .05bp that values her business at roughly 400k.

While producing porn is legal in most states, it's still regulated; What you're suggesting to do is clearly a workaround to avoid the laws against prostitution, and you couldn't get the permits most places.
After the indoor cigarette smoking ban in a nearby town, one bar decided to use the workaround of calling their bar a 'film set' since actors smoking cigarettes on a live stage was an exemption to the overall cigarette ban. They mounted a webcam in the bar and streamed to their website calling it "The Smoking Show"
The next week the county told them that they would lose their business and liquor licenses if they didn't stop breaking the smoking ban.

This guy gets it.

If I had a million, i'd build out a 5 acre piece of land into a series of greenhouse hydroponic facilities. The focus would be on herbs and spices, but growing marijuana, and potentially psychedelic mushrooms in the future would be on the menu (if it became legal). The only problems i'd have would be security, and my shitty climate, which I would try to mitigate with passive geothermal building designs. The rest would be electrically heated as a potential countermeasure on extremely cold months.

As for security, i've been looking into developing my own wireless surveillance networks, or use something open source with some raspberry pi's tied to some poles. Most security issues don't exist until the immigrants take over, which I reckon will be in the next 5 years.

I'd also spend some of that money taking classes in Bartitsu, and build a workshop on this land, so I can then start making canes, and teach lessons on how to defend yourself with a cane. I would then sell custom-made canes to my disciples, and slowly feed them radical ideas, forming an effortless army of cane-wielding militants.

Honestly I don't have any good response on where to get good information. I would say that striking up a conversation with bystanders and people around you about businesses and business processes you could undertake is actually a pretty good strategy. I would say that Pareto applies as 80% of the people will get you the 20% of the ideas that people are trying. Beware of the 20% of people who want to start businesses and suck up to the 80% of ideas.

For you if you want to consider business ideas I would just go back and start reading trends or business idea articles until you get sick of what journalists peddle, then I would pick an industry that has a regular tradeshow and look at what the people at the tradeshow are likely bringing to the table. In my case my dad has been involved in coin-op and video games for roughly 30 years so he knows a lot of old timers and how the industry has developed, he is in a different business now but I have went to several industry trade shows as a result of this connection and have learned that you can learn a lot about an industry by just walking around and looking at the kinds of products everyone is selling and how you can offer something different.

Something like 30-40% of the population is engaged in middle to upper middle class work which means they have some sort of decision making power or connection to networks, the other 60% of the population knows these 30-40% of people. You can often find unknown or hidden connections by just being nice and friendly to everyone you meet and treating them as if they know more than they seem. As odd as it seems; the valet guy, the waiter or the cashier may just be the right person at the right time to make an introduction to someone you don't know or give you an insight that you were not aware of. Everyone has a well-off or quasi-influential connection that you wouldn't see coming. Maximizing connections or ways to move the pieces is the right way to approach business.

Disregard the guy replying to you. I can think of several businesses that would make the owner 250k a year but would go for a million dollars.

Brat Peddlers

A bicycle based Brat stand. I think spending 10k per unit for the bike, grilling equipment, fuel, drinks, and of course meat with a fleet of 10-12 or so. We'll do catering for private functions or corporate events, music and art festivals, county fairs, statiums and farmers markets. Ive seen food carts pull in 4-5k in profits a day. Theoretically I could make back my investment in just 2-3 years.

The rest is just securing contracts for suppliers, and locations. Getting Packer StadiumId love to be sponsored by a grocery chain like Festival or Trigs. Or a meat market like the Meat Block, Maplewood, Usingers, or Nueske's to secure the best tasting quality brats. No Johnsonville bullshit.

Because Im from Wisconsin I want to do something local but also portable to go to the customers. A physical location would be nice to serve up brats diner style.

It’s about owning the original source code for an image or gif.

It's not the source code, it's a certificate of ownership that says that whoever owns the NFT is the rightful owner of that image/song/whatever.

In my city we still have "private clubs". The membership is free, but smoking is allowed. Other than regulars still having to show an ID, it's just like any other bar..

Based. Good luck finding reliable help though. I don’t know what your area is like but most of the kids I see today are fucking shot. They can’t even read a tape measure.

I've been thinking about this a lot for the past year or two and I really don't have a good answer. Sometimes I get sad I pulled out my meager crypto positions in 2017 (10k Chainlink and some other crap - by the time I was going to re-enter in 2019/2020 it was too late) since I'd have like half a million if I kept it in there, but then I realize it wouldn't have fixed anything, I'd still have all my same concerns: financial insecurity, lack of a stable career and, more importantly, lack of an overarching mission. I'd have a house and money in the bank, but that's it, and a house isn't terribly hard to finance. Ultimately what I need is a scalable income model, not a fixed dollar amount in the bank.

Shortly after pulling out my money I started a small business (small farm, ran out of my parents property), and I've really enjoyed that lifestyle, despite not reaching what I'd call success yet. It's like my spiritual nexus or mission statement, and it's really nice having something to always be whittling away at and nourishing. But it was always meant to be a stepping stone unto something larger, and I don't know what that thing is yet and sometimes it drives me crazy because I don't know if I ever will know, maybe this is it.


I look at people like James Simons or John Carmack, etc and see what's possible, so I'm just trying to hone the right skills as fate favors such. I like the simplicity of primary industries, so I guess if I had a million dollars today I'd look into putting the money down a logging or mining company (way more stable income than a farm), but I know there's something else out there.

I’d buy several 26ft flatbed trucks, get a contract with a construction company, hire guys to drive shit around. Easiest thing I can think of, but automation will be a huge kick in the nuts to the industry eventually.
