But we can do this much faster by addressing 5 simple issues.

Five Questions to Determine – Is My Business Idea Good?

  • Competition – Are other people selling similar products?
  • Questions – Are people asking questions that your products and services answer?
  • Books – Are there books or other information sources that address the problem you are solving?
  • Buyers – Are there enough buyers for your product? How many potential buyers?
  • Profit – You can deliver at a profit?

But, even if your initial idea becomes a loser after your analysis, think about how you might change it to make it a winner. You might be able to  change the buyers, the offering, or the packaging to make it something that works. More on that in a later podcast.
