Have you ever wanted to open your very own business venture that will help you make a difference in the world and help you to fulfill your dreams? Then there must have been times that you felt you were ready to take the plunge. To finally have the courage to quit your 9-to-5 day job and start something you can give your heart & soul to. Only to realize that you have been stopped in your tracks by the lack of a good business idea.

Now, we all know, that an idea is the foundation stone for any business. It may just be that you would have had a lot of good ideas, but is it really that great.

The truth is, there is never a lack of ideas for your business. If your mind has the capacity to think, then it is already generating ideas.

Your idea is only as small as you want it to be. And vice-versa.

The Fantastic 4 ways to your next big business idea:)

Make a list of your top 20 ideas - Take a piece of paper and a pen, and write down the best business ideas that you can think of right now.

24 hr Idea-thon - Go on an idea generating frenzy by using this method. Open a new document in your phone, and go about your day as usual.

Each one of those list items in your phone, that you have recorded in one day, can be your next big business idea.

Just do it - go get your hands dirty. Once you get down to business (literally), you will gain insight into what works and what does not. You can them improvise and fine tune your business idea.
