One of the most common problems I see is people getting stuck in the idea phase.
I understand the frustration, which is why I created this video. After watching it, you should have no problem finding hundreds of business ideas, and eventually the right one for you. Enjoy!
How to Find Business Ideas – Script
Are you frustrated because you see others come up with great ideas but you can’t seem to come up with one!?
The truth is that great ideas are everywhere, by the thousands and they’re right in plain sight, you just haven’t programmed your brain to see them.
In today’s video, I’m going to teach you how to find countless quality business ideas.
Here are some of the tools you’ll need:
- A pen
- A notepad
- And a working brain.
Let’s start with a quick exercise:
Look at all the circles in this video and try to find as many RED circles as you can in the next 3 seconds… Read, set, and go!
So, how many BLUE objects did you see?
You see, your brain only sees what you program it to look for! Since you were looking for red circles, your brain ignored the blue objects because you were not focusing on them.
The same thing happens with your idea brain. Unless you know what you are looking for, ideas become invisible to most people.
But that’s about to change. By the time this video ends, you’ll be seeing ideas everywhere you go.
OK wise guy, so… How do I find ideas?
If you pay close attention, you’ll notice that in essence, most – if not all – businesses have something in common, they all solve a problem, a need, a frustration, or they make an existing product better.
Amazon took the frustration of ordering online and made it simple. Google looked at Yahoo, and made a better product.
In order to find great ideas, you need to train your mind to see opportunities in frustrations, needs that aren’t being met, or find things that can be made better.
The secret is to pay attention to your surroundings and notice opportunities.
Start with your personal life. Have you ever feel frustrated about something? Do you ever wish there was a better way? Chances are you are not the only one feeling this way.
Your job as an entrepreneur is to find problems and create the solutions.
Look for people saying things like:
I hate… How do I… This sucks… I don’t like…I need help… I can’t find… I’m frustrated… I wish there was… Find solutions to those complaints and you got yourself a business.
Here is exactly what you do:
Carry a small notepad and a pen or use your phone to write down 10 ideas every day. Force your brain to look at your surroundings and find problems, needs or potential improvements to existing products and write down at least 10 everyday!
It doesn’t matter how dumb or simple your idea might sound, just write it down.
Maybe you went to a restaurant, and the service and food were crap, yet the restaurant was full. Imagine what you could do if you started a nearby restaurant with incredible food and service!
Your friend complaining about how he hates using excel for work because he doesn’t know how to. Why not create a course that teaches people how to use excel and sell it to all those people feeling frustrated.
Or maybe you hear a Realtor talking about how he has no way of showing his international clients the potential properties other than by boring pictures. Well, why not use existing technologies like 3D scanning to create an interactive, visual and professional way for Realtor to show their properties?
Like I said, it doesn’t matter how stupid something sounds, the trick is to build up your idea muscles like a body builder works on his body. With some practice, you’ll notice that you’ll start to see opportunities everywhere.
Eventually, you will find an idea that will get your incredibly excited. You’ll feel it in your gut, and you will wake up the next day anxious to get started. Those are the type of ideas you need to look further into.
Have fun with this, and don’t over-think things.
Don’t spend too much time in the idea phase, find something that excites you and go for it.
So what are you waiting for? Get out there and starting finding treasures! These treasures are disguised as problems, frustrations and needs. So start digging.
