Would you mind sharing how you came up with your business idea? I am struggling with to getting a new idea for so many years.
Our idea evolved from discussions we had with people we met -- friends as well as total strangers. We asked them what they would like to be doing in 5 years (or next year) and kept hearing "I want to own my own business doing xyz, I know all about xyz but I don't know where to start as far as opening a business." So we went through several iterations of ideas before we got to the LaunchX System for Business Startup.
In a nutshell, we started with a market need and created a product to fill it.
That being said, you don't have to have a unique idea to create a great business. You just have to do it better than your competitors -- service, product, atmosphere. Check out this article about choosing a business idea on our website.
I'm going into employee development and training. This is an expansion of my training duties at several previous employers.
