Jay Samit joins us again to judge the best business ideas we’ve come up with over the last 30 days. For those who watched Jay’s original appearance, Jay challenged us to come up with 3 problems a day and ideas to solve them. Today we pitch our best ideas and get live constructive feedback on how to improve our business ideas.
Takeaways + Tactics
1. Every day write down 3 problems you might be able to solve
2. Don’t nurture an idea - kill it every possible way you can think of till you hit a Zombie Idea
3. Scratch your own itch - some of the best product ideas were created by people outside of an industry solving their own problems
So take the 30-day challenge and start writing down three ideas a day for problems you could solve. Doing this exercise helps you to see the world in a different way - as a series of problems that can be solved instead of just obstacles to your happiness. In those 90 ideas could be the seeds of a billion dollar company.
