27 of the Most Successful Small Town Business Ideas

If you want to start a business, but are having a hard time narrowing your list down to a single, successful business idea for your small town, don’t worry. We’ve got your back.

We’ve also come up with 27 of the most promising potential business ideas for small towns. So read on below and thank us later.

1. Coffee Shop and Bar

When you think of your neighborhood coffee shop and bar, you might not think of the same establishment. But if your town is small enough, and clientele scarce, merging these two business ideas might be just what the mayor ordered.

Now, before you go telling us that combining after school 12-year-olds and college 21-year-olds is a terrible idea, hear us out. We’re not suggesting a full-on bar, simply a coffee shop that after 4 pm also serves wine and beer. The concept behind being a coffee shop that

Claude Monet – Wikipedia

French painter

Oscar-Claude Monet (, ,[1][2]French: [klod mɔnɛ]; 14 November 1840 – 5 December 1926) was a French painter, a founder of French Impressionist painting and the most consistent and prolific practitioner of the movement’s philosophy of expressing one’s perceptions before nature, especially as applied to plein air landscape painting.[3][4] The term “Impressionism” is derived from the title of his painting Impression, soleil levant (Impression, Sunrise), which was exhibited in 1874 in the first of the independent exhibitions mounted by Monet and his associates as an alternative to the Salon de Paris.[5]

Monet’s ambition of documenting the French countryside led him to adopt a method of painting the same scene many times in order to capture the changing of light and the passing of the seasons.[6] From

UCAS Personal Statement Tool – Learn what to write about


How to write it

Your personal statement should be unique, so there’s no definite format for you to follow here – just take your time. Here are some guidelines for you to follow, but remember your personal statement needs to be ‘personal’.

  • Write in an enthusiastic, concise, and natural style – nothing too complex.
  • Try to stand out, but be careful with humour, quotes, or anything unusual – just in case the admissions tutor doesn’t have the same sense of humour as you.
  • Structure your info to reflect the skills and qualities the unis and colleges value most – use the course descriptions to help you.
  • Check the character and line limit – you have 4,000 characters and 47 lines. Some word processors get different values if they don’t count tabs and paragraph spacing as individual characters.
  • Proofread aloud, and get your teachers, advisers, and family to check. Then redraft

How School Funding’s Reliance On Property Taxes Fails Children : NPR

Map of school funding in US

Let’s begin with a choice.

Say there’s a check in the mail. It’s meant to help you run your household. You can use it to keep the lights on, the water running and food on the table. Would you rather that check be for $9,794 or $28,639?

It’s not a trick question. It’s the story of America’s schools in two numbers.

That $9,794 is how much money the Chicago Ridge School District in Illinois spent per child in 2013 (the number has been adjusted by Education Week to account for regional cost differences). It’s well below that year’s national average of $11,841.

Ridge’s two elementary campuses and one middle school sit along Chicago’s southern edge. Roughly two-thirds of its students come from low-income families, and a third are learning English as a second language.

Here, one nurse commutes between three schools, and the two elementary schools share an art teacher

— Personal Story Unlocked

The personal story is the unique campaign of each character which, along with dynamic events and map completion, makes up much of PvE gameplay. The personal story is independent from random world events and is always available to follow through the game world and the events which occur there. The personal story is told through character specific instances and is personalized by decisions made before and during gameplay.

The story is played from one character’s perspective for that character’s story. Other players can help with another player’s story but are not able to make choices that affect the outcome, though they can
