Business ideas and how they come to light?.
Do you lay awake at night with your head spinning with ideas? “They should do it this way, it would work better” or “If they can do it, so can I”, and one I often think about is “wouldn’t that be a great business idea“.
The problem is after you fall asleep you tend to forget about these ideas. As our lives are so busy from changing nappies, organising kids for school, cleaning the house, cooking meals, going to that job you love to hate, etc etc
These days most people carry a mobile with them. Start writing down ideas on your phone notepad, or like myself I email myself all my ideas as they pop into my head. If you don’t have a phone that’s ok, you can write it on a notepad, scrap paper, why not record it. Just get your idea (s) down so they are out of your head.
This is called a ‘brain dump‘ as your brain is not meant to keep all of your ideas or things you want to do, and keeping all your thoughts up there will only disappoint you when you forget them.
Brain dump all your ideas and to do’s.
You’re going to have that work/ life balance you have always dreamed about then you just need to do it.
Go through the notes you have written down and recorded and imagine yourself doing that as a business. Being self-employed, your own boss, owning your own shop or even working at home. Like that idea? Awesome. You may be saying to yourself “I can’t do this”, “don’t be stupid this would never work”.
”Entrepreneurs and business people is only slightly smarter than their clients and as a business owner if you don’t know something you can research”
So you have some business ideas, it’s written down, now what?
After your brain dump, you need to sort through your ideas and highlight the ones that make you excited and the ones you think will be the best business ideas.
I would then start researching competitor businesses to see what they do. Please don’t stress if there are 100 other businesses out there doing the same thing as you only need to be slightly different, to be successful and different to them.
Write that one top business idea down on an A4 piece of paper, and visualise yourself in business.
Smile, is this what you want to do? The next step is to work on a business plan- more information coming soon.
Don’t be afraid and Let excuses stop you.
