Default actually i am willing

hey guys/gals,

actually, i am willing to explore sharing of ideas. however, i dont know if sharing an idea makes any sense... an idea loses 90% of its charm once it is shared with people who dont have the same idea. but, two totally different ideas could share the same implementation plans. for example, cheerios are sold to the same person who might also buy the ipod... one is a breakfast idea and the other is personal entertainment. but the customer is same... so, would be willing... scratch that... i would be eager to enter discussions about customers, segments, wants, needs etc... i am on EAD and have a full time job, but i dream every day (have been doing it since 2000) of selling to US market... but i am not sure i understand the market and its consumers so well... there will be no substitute to actually running my business and actually watching customers buy my things... but till the all important green card is not in my pocket, i would love to talk about these things...

cheers!

1. Very rarely if ever, would some one get a eureka moment and then actually go ahead and make a viable product out of it

2. I have seen people trying to brainstorm trying to find/invent something ( social networking, videosharing, etc etc). Wont work most of the times.

3. You dont need to invent a new product or new category.

4. Its 20% strategy and 80% execution

Which leads to my belief
  • Know the industry you want to serve inside out.
  • Build on what you know had have experience in. You will sound more credible and avoid making mistakes
  • read what kind of people angel investors are looking for. Its a good starting point

Bodyshopping or any glorified variants of that (unless you are adding your expertise to what your employee does at the client place) is not a business model

Default hmmm........

is this free advice or are you trying to go somewhere with this? i agree with your statements... however these are so general that i cannot disagree...

there is one item that i am actually not in agreement with and in fact am totally doing the opposite... i dont think past experience in employment helps in anyway for future entrepreneurship. past entrepreneurship experience will surely help... but employment... naah! not in all cases...

Default True

i totally agree with qasl...
this will go down in the history of this forum as the dumbest idea...

if u had suggested that the community share its resources like business plans..marketing for startups..etc.. that would have made sense..


dont lose focus...contribute for FOIA..

Post The best business

Days are tough now and more and more people are getting laid off. After sitting at home for few days they think of doing a business. I guess they have some savings for that. After a while when the economy improves they would get back to jobs.

The best business is to help these community. One can start a business by providing them service such as making websites, visiting cards, regsitration of business, handling of business, selling pens with their name printed on it, mugs, connecting to the market by telling their ideas etc... These group of people are willing to spend money whereas the job market and other sectors don't want to spend money. Make the new entreupreurs your customers. I can't think of anything better than that.

I like the idea of taking the Amway guy for a buffet and run away and let him pay the bill. Afterall there are risk in business. This is one. Whenever i see a amway guy in a indian store, introducing himself. I always ask for some silly help like where is this, that etc.. and make him fetch those things from the aile.

If you are waiting for Eureka moment and become next google guys ... Good Luck (I mean in good way, not sarcastically). Anyways their is another easier way of innovation, and that is collaborate. Before I indulge into this, little light on what I do; I am a full time working mechanical engineer in aerospace industry and had been running events for my facility for past many years. An event is a group event where you enroll participants from different walks of business to get diverse response and ideas on new products or for problem solving.

Each year we desimate age old (since 1940's) product made by us to increase it's value or incorporate features that would meet VOC or out-bid competition. We had little success re-inventing what we make so have moved to philosophy of synerging with complimentary technologies. So say in simpler words, guy making manual hand drill collaborates with motor manufacturer and battery manufacturer and three of them put their individual products into one, to come up with what we commonly say, power drill. That is an example of synerging your products.

Now on this forum you don't know me and neither do I have any idea about you, leave out each others true intent. But I see untapped potential that if utilized in proper way can bring huge benefits to all participants. I am not talking about Amway rubbish, neither aspiring to become next Google guy, but want to incrementally grow and expand by setting up a group and eventually company, where we can collaborate to develop products or services benefiting from each others business insite. We will synergetically collaborate and come up with solutions that gives our idea a niche place. If you want to be into this, seriously only, PM me and we can intiate dialog. Remember I am as rookie into this as you maybe and I am not promising you promised land!
