BrainstormingWhen I with the local Chamber of Commerce we would have a meeting every year after we bring in the new directors and officers. What would do is brainstorm on ideas and avenues we would like to explore for the upcoming year.

The technique can be used when you are brainstorming on HOW to get that business going as well. I realize you don’t have a board of directors and officers handy, but I bet you have FRIENDS no? They can help a lot to get your started! Grab a date, time, and tell them to come over for nachos and margaritas one night to help you. They don’t have to be experts in your field, because we are after some brainstorming ideas! I would pick those friends that get along well together to make things go smooth.


After you get your bulletin board, chalkboard, or something similar pick someone who can WRITE fast! Give others pads of paper in case they think of something, and want to write it down before they forget when someone else is talking.

What you are going to do is write down all ideas your friends may have for your business, or idea FOR a business! The ground rules? All ideas, NO MATTER how crazy and off the wall they are get recorded. The second rule? No criticism about the ideas. The idea is quantity not quality at first!

Brainstorming sessions can be very fast paced, and did I mention I WHOLE lot of fun! Your friends (and you of course) should try to build on each idea, and let the twists and turns happen! You will be surprised at how much FUN and how much you do accomplish by doing this.

How do you get this started? Right down some questions to pose to your group. Let them know what you have been rattling around in your head, and heck if you have some unknown interests and skills make them aware of it. These could come in handy later! Lets say you invented a new widget. How are businesses or families going to use this widget? What is it about the widget that is useful, and could be used to save time or money?

I have a friend of mine that wanted to be a Virtual Assistant, and after she explained what that WAS to her friends (lol) they helped her find her niche market. How? They knew she had worked for realtors for years, and she knew the mortgage industry frontward and backwards! They came up with along good ideas for names for her company, and they fact she would be VERY marketable to real estate and mortgage industries.

Well now that you got that down what is your next step? Now that your creative juices are flowing you need some consultation and direction! That may not be something you can get from your nacho and margarita party, and you need some experienced, educated help.
