I spent an entire year planning to launch a restaurant chain, only to finally conclude it was a bad business to invest in. Every single location is a fresh and risky bet. You typically spend a ton of money for the kitchen and dining room build-out, but the landlord still owns the building. City regulations are getting increasingly burdensome. And employee theft can be very high in this business. Then there is the overhead. The water bill alone for a typical restaurant can run into the $50,000 range.

XM is one of these companies and we invite you to view this XM.com’s review and sign up to a demo account.

Many families with kids, including single-parents, have very limited time resources, creating a demand for part-time child care providers (and a business idea opportunity for you).
