I’ve been learning about entrepreneurship a lot from $100 Business Forum by Chris Guillebeau and Pam Slim, and Question the Rules by Johnny B. Truant and Lee Stranahan in order to build a location independent business and my own empire. But at the same time, I’ve been struggling to find the most important element in this endeavor: products/services.
The problem is that even though I do come up with some business ideas, they don’t really look like what I’m after or there are so many people who do better than me.
Earlier today, Lee Stranahan (@Stranahan) tweeted:
If you had to start a business quickly to bring in a $1000 (one thousand) a month working at home, what would you do?
To which I replied:
Argument clinic. Helping people sharpen their logic&reasoning in what they’ve written. The real Q is: why haven’t I started it?
What I find interesting is that I didn’t have to think hard to come up with my reply to Lee. This argument clinic business isn’t what I’m looking for exactly, but it’s close enough and if it did grew up to be a source of $1000 per month, that would be totally fine.
So, why haven’t I started it yet? It really doesn’t cost me much to launch this business idea. Indeed, it’s hard to think of great reasons against starting this business. So, why not?
I love what Lee said in reply to my tweet:
But you have started it. You started it just now.
Sometimes a little encouragement like this one helps a lot. If you wanted to use such a service, what would want from it?
