    Valentine – Nice suggestions. I always recommend would-be entrepreneurs to discover a niche and find ways to dominate it. That is the only way you can succeed as small business these days. You will not be able to compete with the “Big Boys” head-on when they have advantage of size, scale and influence.

      Hi Harry,
      Great to see you here once again, regarding your comment, it always makes more sense for entrepreneurs to stick with a niche they can dominate and bring the best from it.

      Thanks once again for your amazing comment 🙂

    I like how you included out-of-the-box ways to think up a new business idea… like walking in Walmart and scoping out the missing things. That’s a great way to detect an underserved market. Walmart has everything!

    And believing your own instinct isn’t an option. A true entrepreneur knows how to trust his gut when taking risks.

    That’s the reason I follow a lot of experts, but only to dissect their knowledge and apply it to my own situation in my own way. It just works better when I do what makes me satisfied. And not just doing things because others tell me to.

    Thanks for sharing your insight.
