The biggest businesses start as an idea. Somewhere along the way, somebody has an idea that can turn into pure magic and ultimately amazing profits. Here we look at what turns a good idea into a very lucrative idea. Great ideas can equal great money!

When we think of success stories that pertain to money and business, we look at what made them stand out from the crowd. There are many factors that make a business a true success and launch them into the present. Consider the story of Twitter for example and where it currently stands:

Twitter is now one of the most popular and powerful social networking tool—and it literally seemed to happen overnight. Thousands of people are tuned in each day, hanging on every word and tweeting about their life experiences every minute of every day. It has become so popular that even President Barack Obama used Twitter to announce his VP selection to the masses using this popular technological mechanism.

So where did the idea for Twitter come from?

Jack Dorsey had grown interested in the simple idea of being able to know what his friends were doing at any given time. Specifically Jack wondered if there might be an opportunity to build something compelling around this simple status concept. When he brought the idea up to his colleagues, it was decided then that a prototype should be built.

Twitter was initially funded by Obvious, a creative environment in San Francisco, CA. The first prototype was built within two weeks in March 2006 and launched publicly in August of 2006. The service grew popular very quickly and it soon made sense for Twitter to move outside of Obvious. In May 2007, Twitter Incorporated was founded. It’s amazing that it happened so fast and it just goes to show that there was a true need for this service and the masses rallied around it!

There are many similar stories like this out there, so what do we learn from these little business miracles? With the evolution of the World Wide Web and modern technology, money making opportunities are everywhere and far more present than ever before--everybody has the opportunity and true potential to make money.

Seeing the reality of reduced Social Security benefits translates into less government support for your own retirement. The reality is that it's best to plan now for part-time work after you turn 65. It’s also important to focus on healthy living to make sure you can still work in your older years, as Medicare benefits will probably also be reduced.

Grandmas are making money through their hobbies from home; kids are making money in their spare time for a Disney family vacation.
