From the site Trendsetters, they recently published a very interesting and resourceful article on Minipreneurs, which they tout as an emerging consumer/business trend related to individuals developing new business ideas “on the side”, using all the vast resources that are available on the Internet these days.

The article does a really nice job of highlighting some very interesting, and in some cases, brilliantly designed resources that people can use to start a business either as a full time gig or “on the side”. Obviously, the concept of people venturing out on their own to start a business is not new. But I think what they are trying to highlight is that people are still keeping their “day jobs” and on the weekends, at night, or anytime in-between, they are trying to make “that idea” they had a multi-million dollar business or just tapping into places like eBay to make some additional cash.
