    Excellent synopsis, really highlights why the most frustrating thing for me to hear is "I can't find business ideas!"

    Translation: I can't find ideas that are sure things. I can't find ideas with an easy process that allows me to "have fun" or "follow passion." In other words, people can't find ideas because their "idea" of an idea is so f*cked up, they will never find something.

    My pet peeve teaching guitar is parents who don't want their kid to learn an instrument, but want to brag to other parents that their kid is learning an instrument. I can spot that shit a mile off.

    Finding an idea. Which for people on this forum is probably ludicrous because ideas are every where and unless the work was perfect there would be no opportunities. (And I believe this too.)

    Im totally onboard with having the right Premise - serving others and giving the people what they want (opposed to me chasing money) but something hasn't clicked for me yet..

    Thanks for sharing this. And since you said it was a big mistake for you to not read this thread for a long time, I started to read and I'm so glad that I did!

    After this awesome thread I jumped to read others started by @IceCreamKid and they're all just great. Can't thank you enough.

    BTW, there are ideas and there are ideas... For instance, if you have an idea for a product (as opposed to a service) - you could easily test the licensing route, as a low cost and low risk way of getting your feet wet.

    [ I'm still working in that direction, as ] It allows you to concentrate on your added value (the concept/design) and let the heavy lifting go to the people/companies who already know how to do that.

    Also, if you are in search of ideas, here's a really interesting talk I heard recently. Danny is a really good guy & this is worth a listen (the first 2 1/2 minutes is *not* indicative of the content.) He runs the center for entrepreneurship @ Brown University, but he's practical and not "too" academic in his presentation, on:

    This is a good one thanks for the recommendation. Like tuning your RAS as MJ says. Keeping your eyes and ears open...
