Elaine Pofeldt, the author of The Million-Dollar, One-Person Business, is one of the truly original writers on freelance business, and especially the top-earning tier.
Her recent Forbes article, 10 Niches Where Very Lean Businesses Are Making Big Money, is yet another example:
She analyzed census data to determine the niches where microbusinesses with up to four employees have the most money left over after making payroll, and came up with a top ten list that includes Creamery butter manufacturing, Ethanol and grain alcohol manufacturing, or Flavoring syrup and concentrate manufacturing.
These (and others) are hardly dream jobs for most people, but the profit angle could be quite persuasive for some.
