A Good Idea Book to use as a Starting Point Nov 16, 2005
This book is really divided into two big parts.
The first 128 pages or so is pretty general in nature and talks about things like setting up a company, financing, employees, where to put it, accounting and taxes. These are things that every business has to do and you'll have to do most of it. I only have three comments about this section.
He says that there are three main things you can do: Provide a Service, Sell Products, or Manufacture Products. He's right, that's it. The first decision you have to make is which of these do you want to do?
On page 18 he talks about selecting the company name and checking to see that the name is clear. Then way back on page 83 he talks about getting a domain name for your web site. That's backwards. Get the domain name first. This day and age you need a web site even if you're just putting up your name and phone number.
After this, in the second and larger part of the book he lists the 202 ways (I didn't count them, I presume someone did and that there are really 202). I'd suggest that you view this kind of like a brainstorming session. You probably won't want to do any of these 202 things, but if you can take idea number 72 and combine it with idea 186, and modify the result to suit your own needs, you may well indeed come up with something you can use to create a business. I did, almost exactly like he said to do.
One point to remember, labor rates are very cheap overseas. You may not want to do the actual manufacturing yourself unless you can provide some art or personalized service that someone in China can't do.
