I speak of finding your inspiration as the key to the start of you biz idea, more so than making money.
I have long envisioned making my own product so that I can have a shareable, sellable thing that solves a problem. As a graphic designer I felt bored designing pretty looking aesthetics for causes that did not really inspire me. For my role The work was more critical than outcome.
I started identifying small problems in my life and I made a big long list.
Then I wrote in what would be most impacted if I solved that problem.
So it look like this…
Now I have a clear inspiration, and I am ready to test ideas for delivering a solution to those problems.
This will start with clearly planning what skills, strengths and resources that I have that allow me to deliver an impact. That’s next time…for now I will narrow down this list to 2 or three problems to solve.
This will allow me to really nail down what I value I can get from the success of this product.
