I have this problem constantly. I even create mock-ups of my
ideas, when I can. Like you said, sometimes I don`t have the
skill set required… as simple as it may be. When I talk to
friends, (I haven`t many) they generally agree about my
concepts. OK, there were a few that bombed. But, no one is
handing out money to hire the appropriate candiate. And even
if they did, I don`t think I could pay a corporate rate for the
missing skill set. I REALLY know nothing is free in life. I am
willing to pay for there time, but I would be happy to find
someone with the skills that are not earning $75K a year.
There`s a reason he earns that amount. He`s too good for me.
::::::: I remember when I was an aspiring musician… (I did well
for a while by the way) I would have done anything to play in
front of an audience. I knew people who just loved to mix the
sound. I know there must be unused talent from people who
are as I was. Although, now it might be a producer of music or
artist I am looking for. It is frustrating.
What I do is take all my good ideas and file them with any
samples I may have created. Every six months of so, I look into
the files and remember the ideas. I then asses my current
friends and decide if there is someone new I could talk to. Of
course, my small friend circle is not enough resource.
Sometimes I talk to strangers about what they enjoy doing. If
our conversation leads to a new contact for me… then GREAT.
The bottom line, don`t forget the ideas and continue to
investigate new methods of accomplishing them.
