Great Business Ideas

Posted July 9, 2024 ‐ 1 min read

Query: How do you come up with great business ideas?

The main blocker to any great idea is a thing I call the "blank-page syndrome".

You really want to come up with an idea, but the sheet of white and your pen have absolutely nothing to say to you.

The fix is simple: get out.

Go for a walk.
Go to the pub.
Have 2 pints.

Chat with strangers.
Exchange a story or three.

A woman just told you about her uncle's automobile repair shop and how they struggle with getting orders out on time.

Could this be a larger problem that you can remedy?

Inevitably, as soon as you let go, answers will come rushing toward you.

A great business stems from one great thought, one great product, one great solution.
