Why questions are important for you as an entrepreneur? Can they help you to become a better entrepreneur? I will try to explain this in the next paragraphs.
They are something that needs answers, or in the worst cases only encourage us to find answers. Entrepreneurs are people that solve different problems for their business, their market or their industry. They will always try to find answers about competitors, about business, about customers, about the market, about products and/or services…
Because of that I always try to simplify things by asking questions and finding answers to them. I like to convert problems, processes, and programs into one or several questions that will need answers and solutions for the problems.
On the other side, they can bring me more ideas, opportunities and possible improvements in the processes and programs.
Look at some of these posts:

- Industry Analysis Through Answering 40 Questions – something that can lead you through the process of analysis of your industry.
- Write a Better Marketing Plan – 5 Questions & One Table – with the answers and that one table you will have a perfect marketing plan for your business.
Are they helpful to three different aspects – developing a business idea, making industry analysis and making a marketing plan? In most cases, the answer will be yes.
First of all, they are something that needs answers and in such a way they encourage us to find answers. Answers are solutions to the problem that we want to solve.
As a second thing when it comes to them is that they encourage us to think about the problem and in such a way to find solutions for that problem.
When you seek for answers, you will increase your potential to discover additional opportunities for your business. If you can find new opportunities you can find new ideas that can form the future of your business. On the other side, each idea can be something that will give you possible improvement areas in your business.
