Conclusions and Recommendations from These Quotes

  • Business ideas are the biggest assets of your business.
  • Allow free flow of ideas at all levels in your business.
  • Be open to ideas coming from outside of your business.
  • Put the ideas on paper. You can use the business ideas book template for this purpose.
  • All business ideas as with everything else in your business can be subject to improvement.
  • Communicate with your customers to extend the ideas for your business. Only they can give you high-quality ideas that can immediately be applied to your business. Ask questions whose answers will give you new business ideas.
  • For a business idea to be a good business idea, there must be an existing market need. The business idea is evaluated from the market, not by you as an entrepreneur. So, first, make market research for each business idea.
  • Stay focused on what happens in the environment. Sometimes the best business ideas or business solutions are right next to you, but you simply don’t see them. Follow everything and ask questions like Why and How. In this way, you will be able to see the difference in something that is obvious and clear. These differences probably will not be seen by your competitors.
  • The business idea is a creation of your mind, the mind of an entrepreneur, and nothing else. Everything else represents a tool that helps you to create the idea.
