Want to start a business? Of course you do! Everyone wants to be their own boss. Complete financial freedom is the American dream after all. But where to start? It’s not easy to come up with the next hot idea. Inspiration is a fickle mistress. However, the best ideas are often the simplest ones. Our advice: Find Your Niche!
What is it that you like to do?
Some people know what they want to do at an early age. Other people don’t discover what they enjoy until they’re much older. And a few people go their whole lives trying one thing after another. They key to finding success as an entrepreneur is enjoying what you do, whether that’s one thing or a series of things. It’s hard to be fully committed and fully invested in a business that you don’t really care for.
Does the market exist?
Many would-be entrepreneurs are under the impression that competition is a bad thing when in fact, that could not be farther from the truth. Not only does competition spur creativity but it keeps prices down and helps foster a stronger economy. Competition is also a sign of a strong market. If there are no other companies operating within your niche, perhaps the market isn’t there. If you’re developing a new product that can work to your benefit, you are creating a niche with your product. However, if it’s simply a specialty shop you’re building you’d better be sure that people want what you have to offer. There’s probably reason you can’t find any websites dedicated to selling ONLY Garfield merchandise…
