Every Business Starts with an Idea
Every business starts with an idea. It might be a crazy concept that’s never been done before or a twist on a common product or service. It
might be something everyone will want, or it might fill a tiny niche in the market.
There’s no single way to find the best business idea – it’s about finding the one that suits you best. So how do you do that?
Find your passion
The best idea will be something you’re passionate and excited about – it’s difficult to pour money, energy and time into something that
leaves you cold. If you are genuinely interested in your business, you will deal with the challenges more easily and learn faster.
Play to your strengths
Your business should also line up with your existing skills and talents, so you can get off the ground without relying heavily on outside
help. You don’t have to be an expert, but if you’re opening a café, you should know a thing or two about the service industry.
Relevant skills and experience will also be a big plus when it comes to getting finance from lenders who will want reassurance that you know
what you are doing.
Think about how your idea could bring in revenue – is it a product you can sell, a service or subscription, a retail store, a food service
business? Look at the existing market, start-up costs and margins, and work out whether your idea is likely to be profitable. Your business
planning should outline:
- what customers are charged for
- average markups on products or services
- reasonable operating costs.
