    I want to start a business...but I need an idea. Where do I find inspiration?

    I feel like I want to start something! I feel like I have the skills, the drive, and the know-how...but I don't know what to do, and it makes me anxious! I taught myself HTML way back in the day, taught myself Adobe programs...I got such a kick out of it! I got my BS in Business Management, hoping it would help me give birth to something, but no such luck. I'm now in law school...and I'm still itching to create something of value that I can call my own. Do you have any great business ideas? How did you think of them? Any advice?

    I've started 5 businesses that have all been successful, and I own an idea development and consulting firm that specializes in start-up businesses' ideas, and coming up with them if they don't have any. My business partner has started 4 businesses, and has an incredible mind for new ideas. We also give free advice on how to come up with and develop your own ideas. Shoot me over an email with any questions you have, and I'd be happy to answer them and help you come up with a new idea for a business. brian@ibrightworks.com

    • This is a common problem for most people striking out for the first time, and there are professionals that build business models for you based entirely off of your criteria, goals, drive, resources and skill. Just don't chase after a pyramid scheme for the experience, it's rarely a great one.

    • Let me tell you my story. I work in retail, I'm a electonics manager, at one of the largest companies in the world. How did I become an electonics manger, by starting as a cart pusher 8 years ago. I've been in the depatment for 3 years, and manager for 1 1/2 years. We recently went Supercenter going on 2 years in October. I don't have a degree, just a high school diploma. Went from street thug to business man, from guidance, inspiration, motivation, and my fight mentality, and never quit, but die trying attitude. My store manger has been my role model. I've hit record breaking numbers in sales, with millions in one year since being supercenter. One million alone in last years last quarter. Electronics has always been number one in high shrink since the the store opened in my town back in 82. Last year electronics had a shrink of 46 thousand. I cut that almost in half and some with a shrink this year of 17 thousand. I was number 2, the first time it hasn't been number one since the store has opened in 82. The morale of the story is, it doesn't matter what you have, but what you want, and go hard every day to get it. Stand up and fight for what you want and follow your heart. My heart led me from a total failure to being somebody. A somebody that many people have offered me store manager positons in other certain retails in town. I know who helped make me though, and that is where my loyalty stands. If I wanted more money than I would go the the competitors, cause its higher position and better pay. I could make ten times as much in the company I'm in at store manager though, than the other retailers. You want inspiration, then, even a guy like me can start my own business cause my business taught me how. If you want it, go get it. Electronics is my thang, thats why I'm good at what I do. I know my merchandise, my customers, and how to make the money. I know where the money is in the merchandise, and I have what the people want. What are you good at. How much love do you have for what you want?

    • You know I have a huge idea. All my friends have myspace, but most of the time when it's brought up, they often complain that they never have time to check it, update it, etc. I think you should be the first to start a business to help update their profiles for them. I inquired a couple of my friends about it and they were very supportive about the idea. You seem to have all the credentials to support the job. Maybe you should start it. I don't have the time to really get it off the ground. I think that Donny Deutsche has some good books and some ideas about what to do with your own ideas
