Seth Godin is brilliant, and a marketing guru. I was reading up on one of his blogs and I came across an old post of his that I hadn't seen before. He was commenting on a challenge posted by billionaire Mark Cuban to send him "a business plan that meets certain criteria and he'll consider funding it, right here, right now." Seth went on to say, "you realize that in fact there are tons of ways to create a viable business in just a few months. There's no shortage of ideas worth stealing."
The end of the blog there is a link to where Mr Godin has gathered a bunch of his 'superpowered' friends to compile a list of 999 ideas for possible businesses, free for the taking! "Ideas are a dime a dozen. The money is in the execution."
Fascinating, entertaining, brilliant and stupid... they are all there.
I enjoyed just browsing through the list, but ultimately it got me thinking, and that's the key for me. So if you are into business and want a challenge, or maybe you are looking for a business to start up, I highly recommend you check out these idea's, and/or Seth's blog. Want to kill some time? Let me know what ideas you guys like of the 999? Oh and some do exist already but...
