A tip at a time from FormerlyCorporate.com. #1 If you start a business, you need to sell something…that someone else will buy.
Think hard now: Do you really want to build a whole new market? It can be done, don’t get me wrong. Bezos, Gates, Jobs, Zuckerberg all have done it. It took a long time and lots of other peoples’ money, for them to create something that others would want to pay for.
So you might start with a product or service that people already want. Seems obvious…but I’ve seen so many business owners fall for the fallacy that their interest or hobby will drive a viable business. Are there other people making money doing what you do? Good–then there’s a market for it!
