Business Idea Generation


Design your PERFECT business around who you are and how you want to live your life

Learn to turn what you know into an income


Are you stuck in the process of looking for that one great business idea?

Or have you had one for years but a bit frightened to press the go button?

I can help you become unstuck with that, in fact,

I can help you design your perfect business around who you are and how you want to live your life so that you don't waste any more time thinking about how to get there or if you have picked the right business idea


Why Do I Want To Help?

I have spent my entire working life being that person who just thought life was the way I had been told it had to be.

You know, school, college, work for 50 plus years then retire, you can read full my thoughts about this and get to know me better on my story page.

I didn't know there was another way and you could create a business around who you where and how you wanted to live your life and now I do and I want to share it with you.

And here is another, much more personal reason why I want to help.

Because of my dad.

He hated his day to day life at work because like me he was never cut out for the 9 to 5, he had artistry but felt he was trapped because he had a family with young children to support so he "sucked it up" as they say.

He was a photographer during the evening and weekends, peoples weddings, portraits, pets, whatever people wanted.

He went to night school, got his official certificate to say he was competent, organised his dark room, got his business cards printed and was ready to go.

Sadly he never got to open the box of business cards because he suddenly became ill one day, went to hospital and never went home again.

He was 50 years old and about to embark on his dream, the one he had the courage to go to night school for and finally say he was going to start his own business doing what he loved.

That situation has had a profound effect on me all of my life, I was only 14 years old.

I never realised just how much of an effect it had until I got to his age having spent my working life feeling trapped and stressed at a desk so I decided to change the record.

I realised I didn't want to leave my box of cards unopened.

Do you feel the same?


Is It Time For Your Business Idea To Take Off?

I would like to help, but, as we don't really know each other properly yet, I thought you might want to dip your toe in the water and start working on your own idea in your own time by yourself.

To help you,  I created the mini course below to give you some ideas about how you start thinking outside the job box.

I want you to get into the mindset of

making a living without a job and learn you can profit from your passions

Joy, freedom & flexibility are all available to anyone with the courage to step out of their comfort zone

Business idea generation and dream instigating is what I love to do.

  • I have a talent for making connections and joining up the dots for people in ways they hadn't thought of before or dismissed for the wrong reasons
  • I can also help if you already have an idea and you want to refine and clarify it a bit more and come up with some other monetisation options.

If you are struggling against the tide you have probably not chosen the business that is perfect for your personality and your lifestyle.

So...

Why swim upstream when you can join your flow?

Where your talents lie and the needs of the world meet lie your calling

Aristotle

Such a simple statement, such a true statement, yet most of us have an in ordinate amount of difficulty finding the road to it.

You know you want to break out and do your own thing so badly but "that thing"  keeps eluding you or you feel as though you keep trying and keep failing because it was not what you thought it was going to be, you are not feeling it or you are just down right disappointed.

Here Is Why

The trouble with conventional small business idea and career advice wisdom is the focus tends to be only on what you are good at and/or what you have done in the past.

The choice rarely includes what is best for your lifestyle, personality  and how you would like to do it

Think about that

We all have strengths and weaknesses of course but does that mean you should be doing something purely because you are good at it?

I have a different perspective after many years as a wage slave 

The world of work is changing rapidly, gone now are the days of getting a job for life.

Employers are switching to flexible contracts, not so many benefits and outsourcing the process side to countries with much cheaper labour.

This means less opportunity, more people competing for less jobs and an uncertain economic future for many.

The upside is there has never been a greater time to start your own business


Idea generation and how to to think outside the job box is what this site is all about

Instead of just looking at what you are good at, we are going to explore

  • how your business idea should fit in with your lifestyle and not the other way round
  • how your unseen traits could be monetised
  • where to look for monetisation opportunities
  • what your monetisation options can look like

It Won't Be For You

If you don't believe it is possible because the first thing you need is faith in yourself.

You are not too old, too uneducated, too late,  too anything!

If you are afraid to try something new because you cannot be brilliant just inside your own head, you have to move off the sofa and create some action to accompany all of your thinking.

If you think work has to be hard, if you enjoy what you do then it's not work really.

If you don't put the work in because you can't change the world whilst watching tv.

If you will only take conventional advice because the old ways no longer work, but the plus side is...

It has never been more technologically favourable to come up with a simple business idea on Saturday and implement it on Monday
