The Real Secret to Coming Up With a Breakthrough Business Idea
By Laura Nicole Brown, AllBusiness.com
January 9, 2019

Most businesses waste time addressing problems that don’t matter because they are trying to find answers to the wrong questions. So, what should they do instead? Albert Einstein offers helpful guidance in this famous statement:
If I had an hour to save the world, I would spend 59 minutes to define the problem, and one minute finding solutions.”
In other words, you should spend time to properly understand the problem before jumping to a solution, because reaching the best solution lies in asking better questions.

Asking a good question will enable you to understand the core issues at stake so you can address the right problems. On the other hand, if you ask the wrong question you could spend a lot of time trying to find a solution to the wrong problem. According to Krista Brookman, vice president of the Inclusive Leadership Initiative at Catalyst, “Asking the same questions in the same way will get you the same answers.”

However, sometimes the best answers to questions lurk in unexpected places. Spaces that your standard set of questions would never take you.

A good question will reframe the issue and force you to look at it in a new way, says Warren Berger, author of A More Beautiful Question: The Power of Inquiry to Spark Breakthrough Ideas. It will enable you to identify better solutions which you couldn’t have found without that frame of reference.

Innovation expert Stephen Shapiro says you don’t need to think outside the box, rather you need to find a better box. If you change the question, you will find the same solution faster or different solutions you would not have considered.

A digital Product + Membership Is the way to go! You can easily create one of these by teaching others something you know about or coaching/mentoring them. The best part about it is that if they stay for more than one month, that's recurring income every single month as long as they stay. Imagine getting 100 people on a membership for $50 a month, that's $5,000 a month and you could charge way more than that! This is definitely a way to scale your business and blow up your income if done correctly.

"The sweetness of business comes from the sweat !!"

Let it be Digital+membership or one time or life time. Every moment customer payed or paying, business should serve its purpose. That's the basic and one can never forget.

The earning is a derivative but not the main. Change the perspective change the world.
