    Welcome to the forum!

    It sounds like you have a lot of good practical experience in your field, you just need to learn how to apply it.

    Hang around, check out some progress/execution threads and you'll start to get a handle on how to convert the ideas in your head into real business opportunities.

    You have a set of skills in one of the most important areas on earth today, now concentrate on building up some sales and marketing skills and you'll be unstoppable!

    Check out @eliquid and his excellent thread GOLD! - Ask Me Anything About SaaS ( I'm building my 7th )

    Also check out @Fox and his rocking Web School. He is also a tech whizz and changed his life by using his knowledge to break the scripted mould.

    Good luck, and hope to see you around!

    Super helpful, thanks @Roli !!

    Also, as a more experienced community member what are your thoughts on sharing/vetting ideas and plans (obviously not for promotional purposes). I know that any idea I have has almost certainly occurred to someone else before. I'm curious about the risks of being open to make progress vs. keeping things close to the breast and stagnating with an idea.

    There are two sides to the forum, the public one and the Insider part. I would never share direct details of your idea on the outside, and would be wary even on the inside.

    However you can be general in order to get help; so for instance you might find a product to sell on your website and on Amazon. In that case you would be open about that and say that you're looking to set up an import business and your costs are X and your profits are Y.

    You could even go into details like, my product is in pet care....

    Ultimately you don't want every man and his dog copying you if you come across an ultra successful niche that hardly anyone is doing.
