Hey,
A fictional scenario:
You have found 3 ideas to meet all the aspects of CENTS.
What other criteria would you choose to make a decision for one idea (and thus against the 2 others)?
(To implement all of them is not possible in this scenario)

My Problem is that i have many ideas and i cant decide which one to follow... Many of them fit the CENTS Criterias so i think im blocking myself just because i cant decide which project i want to start :blank:

Are any of them aligned with skills you already have? Which one provides the most value?

Any that create a sense of dignity/purpose? Maybe money - what do you want from your ideas. I'm having the same problem I've got probably about 80 ideas and I know I can't follow them all so I'm trying to find the ones that are the most fulfilling but also profitable.

Another cool thing you should consider is don't limit yourself. Work hard on a project you see to meet your desires but also begin working with some others, guys like Elon Musk are in everything from PayPal to Tesla. As long as you stay organized and it doesn't take too long or too much funding, you can actually work on building multiple foundations which is something I'm currently doing. From new products in agriculture to learning to trading stock. Find what works for you - maybe focus on one thing at a time or do multiple at a time depending on your working style and focus.

Best of luck my friend!

That's easy.

If I had no money, I would choose whichever I could make "profitable" fastest. By profitable, I mean at least able to support myself and one employee, plus expenses with some left over to fuel growth.

If I had a good nest egg, I would choose whichever I believed had the greatest opportunity for long term upside.

And if you are confident in tossing the other ideas away but think they will work (because you will not execute/have time, etc.) you can visit the forum tab; ideas needing execution (INE section) as an INSIDERS Member and perhaps make some cash asap.

Good luck. That's great.
