And I am going to prove it to YOU. And I’ll also show how to generate a business idea in 1 minute.
First, have you ever heard business people make this statement?
“All you need to succeed or build a business is 1 GREAT IDEA.”
Sounds true and right eh?
It’s complete HOGWASH.
Again I’ll prove it.
You see, what you need is not a GOOD idea. In fact, you don’t need any IDEA.
Yes, you don’t need ideas….
All you need is to solve a problem. Or serve a need.
I’ll explain why in a minute.
The Problem With “Business Ideas”.
If you are fixated on getting “genius business ideas”, you may wait a lifetime and never start any business.
You don’t need GENIUS business ideas to start a business. You just need to solve a problem or serve a need.
Many people think they have to dream up another Uber, AirBnB, Alibaba, etc (the so called shared economy business models), before they can start a biz.
Many people have fallen for this “good idea thing”, and have half their lives waiting for a GENIUS idea to strike them like thunder.
They think they can become another Zurkerberg.
Or another inventor with a great invention.
Or a celebrated genius.
Well, guess what?
You won’t have a bright “Einstein idea”.
Not gonna happen. (It’s possible but unlikely).
It might be much easier for lightning to strike you thrice at the same location, on the same spot on your body, at the same hour daily (for 3 consecutive days) than for you to have a bright (NEW) original idea.
Not saying you can’t but the probability for that to happen is about…
(Let me see)…say 1 in 1 Trillion.
If you can start serving simple and immediate needs, you could one day have a bright idea from God. (Or from any source)
So for Now, what do you do instead?
Start a business to Solve problems- common problems around you.
Or even better SERVE the needs of people.
You see, when you think of a business as “problem solving” and “needs serving”, it becomes much easier to wrap your head around it.
Coming up with a business idea becomes easier when you think of businesses that way.
So How Do You Know What People Want?
There are many ways to uncover these needs…but the easiest, fastest and guaranteed way to do it is…so SIMPLE…an UNBORN baby could do it…
(Ok, maybe I am exaggerating a little bit. But it’s that simple.)
Just LOOK at what people are ALREADY buying.
I know it may be hard to believe, so I’ll show some examples.
1 online and 1 offline.
What are the businesses that you personally patronize?
Like me, I got a haircut today at a barber shop.
That’s a simple business that serves a need for men.
Men barb their hair at least one time a month.
It’s not a GENUIS idea. Anyone could actually start it… but since you are searching for BIG (special shiny idea), you may ignore this business idea.
What about other services and products you use daily? Can you start a business around it?
Or do you still want a GENUIS original business idea?
Another example online.
Many people want to start generating income online but don’t want to start a business that sells products and services?
The ones who finally KNOW that’s the secret to generating online DELAY because they think they need to come up with a brand new, NEVER created product.
A product no one else has created.
This is a MISTAKE.
Just the same way many people think they need a bright shiny new business idea offline, many make the same mistake online.
Again if you want to uncover the best products and services to sell as a business, then locate what they are buying already.
That’s a business idea you can also start.
Finally, hope this has kicked you positively to go out and start that business you wanted to start.
If you want to uncover the best products ideas for the online space, I have created a product that reveals what to do , step by step.
It is called Quick Product Idea Generator.
