Why Hello!

I'm not a writer. I'm cursed. I have ideas for things. I have lots and lots of ideas, all the time. Most of them for new business, some for things that current business need to do.

I'm 25 years old and I've started a couple successful businesses of my own.
The first business I started was a great idea, but since I was only 19 at the time, I failed to understand that every good idea eventually degenerates into work, and, well, I really don't like to work. So after the first failure I worked at my second idea and now it works for me. The third as well.

The problem is, I really do have more ideas than time. It drives my wife crazy. And I'm not talking about the idiotic, pie-in-the-sky ideas. These things will work if you work them. Well, most of them. I had one idea to start a company that gives people ideas for businesses. That was a dumb idea. Plenty of people have ideas and no money, but very little have money and no ideas.

So I decided to start this website as a creative outlet for my non-stop ideas. As far as I know, everything I post will be original (although there really is nothing that is truly original). Sometimes it is not original, but there will be room in the market for competition with a fresh angle. There's plenty of money to be made there. Also, I may have gotten a good idea off of someone else's not-as-good one. But that leads me to the next point.

Pay close attention. If you want to use my ideas, just ask, and I probably won't mind (but please do ask). However, if you use one of my ideas, pay close attention to the details. Many times the only thing separating a profitable business and a flop is a small detail that you otherwise wouldn't think is important.

Anyway, have fun, excuse the bad grammar and spelling errors and maybe you'll make a million bucks.

Wow, this is weird. I kinda started the same blog a few months back, for pretty much the same reasons. Except my girlfriend is pretty good about humoring me. Anyways, maybe we should join forces, Voltran style...

Here's my blog, still a little rough around the edges:

It's weird because I too, have had a blog for this reason (it died.) (and I found you via digg)

Greetings! I followed a link from Digg. Pretty sure I am going to bookmark this site, as I have the same ideas/feelings ... I just don't have the time to write them down!

However, some of us readers are interested to know what type of businesses you have opened thus far. You spoke, with no specifics. Do tell.

Thanks

Pretty nifty. No doubt, intriguing. I think I may have heard some of your ideas before. Something with tea, maybe. I'll keep my eye on this one.
