Small Business Idea - How Can Problems Make Great Ideas For Businesses?

Nobody likes problems, but what if you could turn a problem into a small business idea, then problem solving becomes your inspiration. Here's what I mean. You know that pile of clothes in your closet that you must take to the dry cleaners, but never seems to get there. Well, what if all you had to do was take it to work with you and the dry cleaning guy picks it up and deliveries it. If you live in an area with a high concentration of office buildings where the attire is professional, just think of all the happy dry cleaning customers you can offer your new service to. Negotiate with a local cleaner to give you a special discounted price because for all the new business you'll be sending his way. You charge your customers regular price, plus a pick up and delivery charge and your on your way to making a profit.

That is just one of the many problem solving ideas I came up with that can easily be turned into a home based business opportunity. How do you come up with even more profitable ideas? We all know someone who loves to complain, listen to them for new ideas. When someone says "If I could make this easier..." or "How do I get rid of this..." there is an opportunity to turn that problem into a money making solution. Look at you own life, what problems do you face that you would love to solve.

Try to make sure there is a market for your ideas. Run your thoughts past family or friends. Contact local business that your ideas pertain to and see what kind of partnerships you can develop. Document your ideas by writing them down and refer back to them from time to time as an old idea may spark a new one. Not every idea you come up with will make you a millionaire, but you never know which ones will be wildly successful unless you give it a try.

Home based business can be started with a simple idea. Pay more attention to the events in your day, looking at them from a different perspective. You do not have to create a new idea just improve an old one. Once you get those creative juices flowing you may want to be on the cutting edge of things. Watch new trends, what are people talking about, look at TV commercials, watch talk shows and soon you will have more profitable ideas for new business than you will know what to do with. Ideas are everywhere, don't limit yourself to just one, why not start multiple streams of income.

Teaching your children how to start their own business could be the legacy you pass on to them. Just think by the time you child graduates from high school he or she could already be a seasoned entrepreneur. Never having to rely on someone else for a 9 to 5 job is a great feeling. So, keep your eyes and ears open for a small business idea that interests you and that there is a hungry market for, to help you move closer to your dream of working from home.
