    I have this list of ideas that I've been updating regularly. You can take any of these ideas and use them for yourself. Since ideas have no bearing on success and only execution does I don't mind sharing them. So here is a list of ideas with a little blurb on what they are. Some are specific others are vague. Each of them DEFINITELY need more work put into them if you choose to go with one. Also, they do not have written ways of making money off of them, this is for you decide. Have fun and here is the list!

    Keep in mind I have not done any additional research for these ideas, they may have been done before but I'm sure if you felt like it you could definitely skew the market in your favor on some of them. They are not all great but you might find some gems.

    I encourage others to post some ideas they have as well. No need to however. THANKS and enjoy!

    Interesting list, some good ideas, some being done, and some odd ones as well. Most of them are challenged with a revenue model and monetization issue.

    Geocaching?

    I don't get it. I recommend this plumber, but if you don't use him in 24 hours, his contact disappears?

    It was more so for if you wanted to work with someone but didn't want to give them your personal information (i.e. real phone number and email). This way you don't compromise your actual contact info. If that makes sense. I'm looking into it to see if there is demand for something like this and if people will actually use it. Thanks!

    Some type of balance board to practice ''surfing''

    I do every board sport & struggle the most with surfing, its super hard to balance on the board while getting up.

    https://www.amazon.ca/Carrom-Exerci...ocphy=9001313&hvtargid=pla-316213018297&psc=1

    Something like that except it would need to be big enough to lay down on and practice standing up on it (also way cheaper)

    Most likely would buy something like that if it existed & was a reasonable price point.

    Decide.
    Sounds good.
    However the Boss (my name for our host) has outlined the matrix in TMF and this is a very subjective issue.
    The Weighted Average Decision Matrix.
    Could it be used, is it a copyright issue, probably not.
    Interesting ideas OP.

    Despite finding it annoying that people call new businesses 'the uber of xxx', I'm quite taken with the idea of the 'uber of lawnmowing', in that punter can post lawnmowing jobs, and registered lawnmowers can accept / reverse auction bid for them, cutting down travel times between jobs to improve efficiency / lower prices (or increase margins depending how competitive it is)

    There are lots of them out there. I used Lawnstarter and Lawnlove as a contractor. They have a place. Of course there is room for improvement, so it's still a valid idea to pursue.

    That's super interesting, as neither service (or anything similar) appears to be in Australia. Whilst not a massive market in the context of the US, there's likely still 7 - 9 million lawns, which is a decent addressable market!

    Which just goes to show that you thinking can be pigeonholed by looking at competition only in your own backyard!

    If you just change your field of vision slightly, then a whole world of opportunities can open up!

    I think it's more like Craigslists use of email. They act as a middleman so neither party has to give up their personal email in case of spam and whatnot.

    Could be useful for many things like dating, buying/selling, anything that you might want some anonymity at first.
