Hi everyone,

I'm new to this forum and I have enjoyed the very interesting posts here. I currently run a small but successful landscaping company and have been so for 10 years. Over the past year I have been thinking of changing my business from a service based business to a product based business. Now with the Covid-19 pandemic and the economic fallout that is sure to come, I think this is the big kick in the butt and a great opportunity for entrepreneurs.

Over the past couple weeks, my partners and I have been brainstorming ideas, researching them and eliminating ideas from our list. While we are not short of ideas, I was hoping that I can enlist the help of the many smart people in this forum for a brainstorming session to try and come up with some great business ideas.

Here is the criteria we have been following for our ideas however any idea is welcome:
  • Can be described how it turns into action in one sentence
  • There is an obvious way to make money with this idea
  • Solves a problem for someone
  • We can figure out how to make this idea happen quickly
  • Low maintenance
  • Can be paid more than once for this idea
Any feedback is appreciated and all ideas are welcome.

Thanks!

Not to contribute nothing and make you feel bad at the same time, but this is why you must attend the Summit. One of the speakers did an incredibly powerful brainstorming demonstration with volunteers from the audience.
