Turning Committed Ideas into a Business | Small Business Idea
You’ll recall no doubt that we left this subject with you having identified those ideas on your list that you had said you would be committed to if you were able to start a home-based business in any / all of them. So what’s next for your small business idea?
Let’s put them all in the order in which you personally would love to have a business in that area; ignore cost issues, for now, just put them in the order your most committed to.
Right – done that?
When you have, let go back to that startup cost question and close that off.
Look at your list, which of the small business ideas will require equipment that you don’t have or can’t reuse in order to get started? Look at those business ideas, ask yourself what can I do in the small business idea (market) that doesn’t involve all the equipment?
Is it possible I could outsource some of the tasks of the business to other people and allow me to start the business? Can I scale up (start small and grow)?
Just asking these questions, especially if your number one chose is on this list, will make you start to be creative in how you look at the business ideas, the more excited (committed) to a business the more creative you’ll be to find ways and to stay in business.
When you have done this and there is really no other way to start any of the home based business ideas, just strike it through. And forget about it. If you have strong pangs of disappointment over any you have removed, go back to it and ask yourself the questions above again.
Okay we’re done! Well, alright no we’re not, but we do now have the list of business ideas that we can consider as our home based business.
Next time we cover this topic we’ll look at which of those ideas have a real market and which ones don’t. That’ll be next week (not Sunday), so watch for next article.
