I get lots of questions from aspiring entrepreneurs that what business should they start in 2019. Some of them are in college, some of them are working in a traditional job and are under bad leadership, some of them have a nudge and want to start a business. So, I decided to compile a list of business ideas that will stay very relevant in 2019. I am the co-founder of I Innovate magazine (it's a magazine that provides painkillers to entrepreneurs' problems) and pretty much famous on Facebook groups and Quora.
