    Is there a Need for My Product

    My idea is to modify the electromagnetic breaks on roller coasters to work on cars and trucks. My question is this: how should I test the need for this product? I know that people will say an idea "is great" when you ask them, but when actual money is involved that's when people tell you what...

    GOLD! Is CENTS Destructive to Action?

    Over the years I've read thousands of introductions here. A common thread I've seeing follows the following format: A) I have 3 ideas, X,Y, and Z. B) None of them meet CENTS. C) X is missing entry, Y is missing scale, and Z is missing a mix of both. D) I don't know what to do. The end result...

    I have a few ideas in mind for Ecommerce physical products. Curious what you all think as to what the most current and latest effective methods to validate and test a product/market need. I feel landing pages might piss people off / feel spammy when they find out you don't have stock and ask...

    GOLD! The CENTS Business Commandments for Entrepreneurs

    Thought I'd start a thread based upon the CENTS Business Commandments found in The Millionaire Fastlane and UNSCRIPTED, just in case someone searches for it by search engine. Since this concept is covered in both books, I don't think I ever posted an "official" thread on the topic. It would be...

    Luxury Products/Niches

There is an obvious NEED regarding luxury products (and services), as evident by the increasing sales of pretty much anything that can be branded as high end, due to the desire of people to purchase things which can increase their...

    INTRO What do you think?

    Hello to all forum members! First of all, a big thanks to @MJ DeMarco for writing not one but two books challenging the current (flawed) state of thinking among individuals worldwide, and showing to all of us that there is more to life than just 'doing what you're told.' I am about to turn...

    Is it really needed ?

    So let's say you have an idea. You evaluate the idea against the NECTS commandments and arrive at the conclusion that it mostly fulfills all of them. Your doubt is in the Need commandment. How do you go about getting rid of that doubt? In other words, how do you know if a product/service is...

    RANT Don't go too niche!

    At the risk of preaching to the choir. (a lot of people here will know this already). I want to talk very briefly about niche. The "follow your passion" thing gets regularly debated, and I don't see this one being done too often. So here it is: Don't go too niche! If "follow your passion" is...
