    Hi Sir/ Madam
    I am a 50 years old Ex servicemen from Indian Air Force. I am presently unemployed and want to have some ideas for starting some business. I do not have much amont to spend money in buying or renting some shop. I had worked in an Aircraft maintenance engineering college for around 4 yrs a faculty member. the college where I was employed is closed and I am in the need to have some administrative job or some business oppotunity.

    • Yash says:

      Starting a business is not like playing video game. Many factors make business successful as we see many business turn into disasters may be due to lack of knowledge, plan and wrong idea selection.

      Secondly, you have probably heard the expression that “the rich get richer while the poor get poorer. The reason it happens is because the rich focus on a completely different way of earning money. Dhiru Bhai Ambani, Bill Gates, were not born into riches. Yet over their lifetimes they’ve amassed huge personal fortunes. This is because they understand and use the power of leverage through residual income.

      There are thousands of stories about people with no money or less money, who accumulated great riches and this choice is available to all of us to earn and make honest and legal money and create residual income for us and for our generation as well.

      I can introduce you with a successful proven system, which is basically a kind of franchise business. This business idea is “the most talked about but least understood career in India so far but now becoming popular day by day as it could be started with a very low investment and is absolutely a risk free.

      I want to assure you, l if you execute this business idea correctly, you will see massive success. There are many Ex Air force personnel enjoying the best of this opportunity. But one needs to have a real fire and zeal to explore this opportunity.

      I am quite successful in this business and can introduce you with this powerful and successful proven system. I cannot guaranty but I hope you may like it, decision is yours.

      Please feel free to call me at 9818850405.
