Hi Brian, I wonder whether most small business owners would be surprised at the high risk businesses listed here. Think a restaurant, a retail business or a direct sales business are safe bets? Think again! Great addition to the BizSugar community!

Retail and restaurants share the same traits, large up front investment and a lot of overhead from day one.....not a lot of wiggle room to make mistakes when you're starting out. I don't think I would call MLM a business, but rather an opportunity. People come and go from these opportunities with little invested by the way of money or commitment.
