Yea I have a business idea! I came up with it after talking to my friends who are new moms. It seemed so obvious, that I didn’t give it much thought. But then when I was hanging out with my dad I mentioned the idea, and he was really interested. In fact he said, “Now that’s something I would want to invest in.”
Today I went to a few relevant stores to check out the market for my product, and the applicable trends. There’s definitely a need for my invention! I’ve also been going over the design details with my dad, and we came up with an awesome name! Sorry to be vague here, but I have to protect my idea. It’s not that I don’t trust you – I just don’t trust the creepy guy who’s reading over your shoulder. Made you look!
Next, I need to make a prototype, test it out on my friends, refine the design, and then find a manufacturer. Easy! But actually writing this all down does make it seem simple and manageable. After all, it’s just one step at a time.
Here’s something to glean from this: Always share your ideas. When you start to talk you flush out the concept and you can sense from your audience’s reaction if it’s marketable or not. If you just leave it in your head it’s easy to dismiss, but some of the best ideas are ones that seem obvious; seem like they already exist but some how don’t. Also write down a game plan. Otherwise it can seem to overwhelming to start.
