Idea Mining -- The Path to Gold
Every successful enterprise begins with a good idea. Ideas are the spark of life that spring into your head spontaneously (kind of like the "big bang theory"). They occur most frequently when you are focused on a goal. Our goal now is to awaken your inner-entrepreneur. That business urge will come forward when you concentrate on what you naturally love to do.
Do you love animals? Children? Fixing things? Cooking? Fashion and Design? You get the point.
Ideas are elusive, so it's important to capture them as they occur. I like to keep a pad and pen with me, so I can jot them down. Or, if your computer is handy, you can open a file and store them.
Important tips: Ideas will wither away if you judge them too soon. And, it's not time yet to expose them to others seeking their opinion or approval.
For now, just gather your ideas.
