SO MANY IDEAS!
You are a creator. You are energy You are a problem solver. There is an energy that comes from deep within that when breathed into an idea helps it to take on a life of its own. That is my definition of an entrepreneur.
These great ideas may come to you one at a time, or in waves. They may find you in the shower, on a walk, in the middle of the night, or at the break of dawn. Sometimes they arrive in the middle of a great conversation with friends, other times during conversations with the voices in your head.
Ideas are seldom the challenge. Inspiration can hit anywhere, anytime with that momentary flash of ‘ooohhh, this needs to happen.’
Finding ideas are not the problem. Implementation is.
PROVE IT Like many entrepreneurs, you are an idea factory. You have a list of ideas waiting to be implemented. So many, that at times it can be overwhelming. Which idea is the one to be worked on today? Will it work? Does it matter? How do I choose?
“I will just leave this idea here and see if it grows wings.”
