"Of course, as with any business venture, starting a unique business certainly has its pros and cons. One of the potential downsides is that the business will not have as wide a customer base as more conventional businesses. However, those who are looking for what a unique business offers probably won't be able to go anywhere else to find it, so there is usually little to no competition. The challenge is finding a unique idea that really sells" mentions the article. The article then goes on to mention these unique business ideas used today that entrepreneurs can try out in 2014 which include:

  • A Cat Café
  • Mobile Boutique
  • Personalized "Handwritten" Thank You Notes Service
  • Goat Rentals

The mobile nature of the business model allowed sellers to take the food wherever the people were. One couple took this idea and created Wanderlust, a mobile boutique that sells vintage and handcrafted clothing and items and is able to take their store to events all over their city."

Some of the other business ideas mentioned may also pertain to many entrepreneur's business plans. Although as questionable as some of these businesses may sound, they have all been met with levels of success, success that can be seen in places like Tokyo where The Calico Cat Café is bustling with activity in the form of regulars and of course, cats.

An offline-first app is an app that works, without error, when there is no network connection.

Instead, talking to a web service in a chat-bot mode would be muc...
