Funky Micro Business in Weeds

There are many funky micro business opportunities in weeds.

One man’s flower is another man’s weed.  One man’s problem is another man’s opportunity.

The wonderful flowers in our North Carolina front yard are…


weeds.   They are beautiful one time of the year but take over if not controlled.  We use bush hogs to keep them cut back… but our meadows are fpr grazing and  are small.   Mowing won’t work in most types of farming and this fact creates profit potential.

Excerpts from a Businessweek article The Super Weed Strikes Back tells the tale:  Justin Cariker grabs a 7-foot-tall Palmer pigweed at his farm, bending the wrist-thick stem to reveal how it has overwhelmed the cotton plant beneath it. This is no ordinary weed: Over time it has developed resistance to Monsanto’s best-selling herbicide, Roundup. Hundreds of such “superweeds” are rising defiantly across this corner of the Mississippi Delta. “We’re not winning the battle,” Cariker, owner of Maud Farms in Dundee, Miss., says as he looks at weeds that tower over his infested cotton field like spindly green scarecrows.

Cariker’s superweeds represent a growing problem for Monsanto, whose $11 billion of annual sales are anchored in crops genetically engineered to tolerate Roundup, the world’s best-selling weedkiller. The use of Roundup Ready seeds has transformed farming in the 15 years since their debut, allowing growers to easily dispatch hundreds of types of weeds with a single herbicide while leaving crops unscathed. “When the Roundup system first came out, to a farmer this was the best thing that ever happened,” says Cariker, who used the labor-saving technology to double his planted acreage, to 5,000. “Farmers thought we had died and gone to heaven.”

Not exactly: It turns out the widespread use of Roundup has led to the evolution of far-tougher-to-eradicate strains of weeds.

Resistant weeds are a huge problem as the world’s food supplies struggle to keep up with a growing population.  and the bigger the problem the greater the opportunity.

More powerful herbicides are not the answer.  Toxic sprays already create health problems enough!

Finding ways to supply nutritious, healthy foods is among the top income producing  fields.

This is why we we have made Bio Wash one of the five turnkey business opportunities we have integrated into our International Business Made EZ program.

The Beta Turnkey International Micro Business program is aimed at bringing goodness AND profit.

Take Bio Wash as an example.  A recent message we shared over two dozen ways that people from restaurants to farmers to garbage processors are using this organic bio degradable product to enhance some part of their business and help the environment at the same time.

Bio Wash helps plants grow and is…


well suited for small business.



We have general plans for this micro business program but will refine it as we work with the first readers who enroll.  We find the best way to develop systems is to refine through action. We expect our beta program this year to clarify how we can best help our readers develop successful micro businesses and invite your participation.

To start either order one of the three online programs.

International Business Made EZ ($239)

Most readers  who enroll in our Online Courses and attend our International Business and Investing Seminar have their own business in mind.  Our courses and seminars will help make your business ideas work better.   Those who do not have a business idea can join in our turnkey micro business program.
