The latest article from Empowered Ezine shows the website's interest in helping new business owners take off with their business ventures by providing some unconventional business ideas for 2014 that may prove useful.

The Empowered Ezine article mentions that business owners don't always have to differentiate themselves from the competition to succeed. Sometimes, unorthodox business ideas are unusual enough that competition is few and far between. The article itself provides a spectrum of business ideas while giving some practical business advice.

"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 article also describes each of the business ideas while explaining while these businesses are considered trendy as of today. An example of this is mentioned in the article on the topic of mobile boutiques: "Not too long ago food trucks were one of the biggest small business ideas around, and they still are some of the best small business idea for 2014. 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. Goat rentals, as silly as it sounds is also a great, eco-friendly way to may a business out of lawn cutting. Cost effective without leaving behind harmful chemicals, goat rentals is a great business idea that's in a league of its own for business newcomers.

The article concludes these great business ideas by saying: "These are just a few of the unique businesses 2014 might see more of. The trick to starting your own unique business is finding a niche that isn't being filled and researching the best way to fill it."
