Business opportunity

Today I took a step towards really creating a real business that really makes money.  Recently my buddy pointed out a website in Calgary/Edmonton called The idea of running a real estate advertising site for Vancouver appealed to me so today I sent an email to the people that run it asking if they’d be interested in letting me expand the company into Vancouver.
I originally thought that I could write all the software myself, and design a slick website.  But as the week went through, I realized that it would be better for both me and them if I was able to use their existing buisness as a base, and just have to manage the Vancouver aspect, of marketing, sales, and probably taking pictures of apartments. 
Using an already established website reduses my risk, and the work I have to do upfront.  If this business deal works out I could finally be bringing in the second income I’ve wanted.
