In today’s business world, your ideas are what set you apart from your competition. Here’s how to get your creative juices flowing so that you can out-think and out-earn your competition.
The lightbulb. Bubble wrap. The Post-It. The iPod. The Snuggie. Facebook. Twitter. These inventions, products, and businesses all started with an idea. An idea that to anyone other than its creator(s) may have seemed like an insane thing to invest much time, money, or effort in bringing to fruition. But for the masterminds behind these great ideas, the risk paid off and so too can your next great idea.
Now, you might be thinking, I am not going to come up with today’s equivalent of the lightbulb. That’s fine. You don’t have to. Great ideas come in many shapes and sizes – whether it’s something as small as a new logo for your business or something as big as rolling out a brand new product. What’s important is that you give your best ideas a shot at life.
