Citadel: Entrepreneurs & Businesses
It has now become very important to begin making a list of revenue streams and private businesses intended for the Citadel. We must begin immediately to draw up a complete and detailed Comprehensive Plan for the Citadel. You may, of course, post anonymously if you wish, but PLEASE take a moment and post about the type of business you intend to open once you reach the Citadel.
Of utmost importance are businesses that have a regional or national scope - such as IIIGear which will have a retail shop in the walls, but reach nationally via the internet. It is also important to know what sort of business you plan to open that does not necessarily have a national scope, such as a barber shop, or a Subway sandwich shop,
We do not need you to go into details, but list the type of business and whether you will service only Citadel customers, or regional customers (such as a nice restaurant that may attract people from the local area), to businesses with a genuine national audience (probably with an online store) such as building custom knives or making vodka.
While we certainly need local service only businesses, we also need a robust series of entrepreneurs who intend to market and sell nationally.
I'll begin with what I know will exist, or with ideas people have shared. Please, please, please do not add to this list if you are not serious or only day dreaming. If you are on the fence, feel free to add your comment, but please indicate that you have not 100% decided to move into the Citadel and begin your business.
