    It’s amazing the niche businesses that the web is creating for people out there. Find a need, fill a demand and you may just see success. I especially like to hear stories about people who just kinda approached it like that and stumbled onto success, too. Whateverlife saw a need and filled a demand – and she just may get rich because of it. How absolutely fantastic is that???? I love it.
