Many would-be entrepreneurs have a similar problem:
“I don’t have a business idea.”
So, naturally, they turn to everyone’s best friend / sometimes worst enemy ––
Now, as anyone who has searched mysterious medical symptoms or an unfortunate combination of accidentally sexual words, Google (and the internet as a whole), spits out a lot more information than you may have bargained for.
A lot more.
Of course, unwitting business idea hunters suddenly come across hundreds of blog posts claiming to have “the way” to find a great business ideas, replete with business plan templates, market research, and Facebook data mining.
You would think that coming up with a great business idea is rocket science, and you are not a rocket scientist. (Or are you?)
Good news for you –– it’s not.
It is actually much, much simpler than that if you apply the right strategy.
It’s just 3 lil’ steps. Really.
I’ll give you the rundown here, but if you really wanna dig in, you should download the free Idea Finder Workbook I made. You’ll get all this info plus activities to use and immediately put into practice.
Tell me if I’m wrong.
I’m betting that somewhere along the beginnings of your journey as a social entrepreneur, whether that was a year ago, a week ago, or hell –– even today, that you’ve gotten overwhelmed by the process, shut your laptop, and felt pretty frustrated by everything you needed to do.
Trust me, I’ve been there. I am there. I will be there? (yep.)
Thankfully, it doesn’t have to stay that way.
And as it turns out, you don’t need to spend lots of cash money or buy any fancy technology to get out of the typical “oh-god-what-have-I-gotten-myself-into-please-help-me-ahhh” rut.
The internet, beautiful majestic unicorn princess that it is, is ripe with free amazing stuff that you can start using today in your business or project.
Let’s dive in.
I don't call myself a writer.
Giving myself that title feels disingenuous. As if in doing so, I would be wrongfully placing myself among greats such as Ernest Hemingway, Edgar Allan Poe, and Judy Blume.
So, when people ask me what I do, I might talk about writing, but I am never a writer.
My LinkedIn profile has never listed me as such.
Similarly, I carefully vet the creative work I have posted online.
Any creation with my name attached to it has gone through a series of mental and written checklists to affirm that I indeed, want it to be open to the masses.
Why is this the case?
Why do I (and many others) filter our creative work so heavily, often at the expense of total authenticity?
I have a theory.
And it involves internet trolls.
Let's change the world.
