Hi, I have over 70 ideas for businesses. I've recorded them all in evernote.
I've heard many people say to pick something that you are excited and are passionate about.
While I think that's great advice, does anyone have a good method for whittling down many ideas to the top few?


Wow, those are lot of ideas. Well, here are some strategies that you can try exploring

  • Net sales ratio (or net profit percentage)
    Net sales ratio = Net_Income_Before_Taxes / Gross_Revenue
    I'm sure there are many good resources; but, here is a quick

  • Competitive landscape
    Is it online or brick & mortar. If the latter; how strong is its pool against existing and established businesses.

  • Can you mimic existing business model to help expedite your efforts

  • How much capital investment does the business need, and do you have the means to execute on it

  • Can start the business as a pilot and deal with incremental expense


Thank you, those are good suggestions.
