What small business is doing well in this economy?
Most of them and the family owned ones, are way down, many in the red and many folded. What small businesses are still in the black. My background is engineering but I do NOT have a PE cert and don’t plan to.

If you know a business that is doing well, please list it. Thanks.

Unfortunately, there is no one specific answer to your question because it depends on the area that you live in and the average income earned by the residents who live in that community.

That being said, you should focus on businesses that people will always need (e.g. Food, Clothing, Home Maintenance, etc).

If you are planning to start a small business, then consider following one of those particular areas.

I hope this helps and I wish you the best in your future endeavors.
