Attention wannabe entrepreneurs! For day 3 of the Inc. article challenge (after about 15 minutes of over-analyzing what I should do) I decided to start a list of business ideas. It was surprisingly tough. I spent the most time on this challenge and didn’t come up with much. I’ll probably add to this in a future day.
You can tell the state of my personal life is all about time management and making life easier. I would fuuuurrrr reeeeaaaaal pay some serious cash for a couple of these services (ahem, Stitch Fix service for family pictures and some type of in-home meal prep that actually results in meals that are fast, delicious, and healthy).
I also don’t get why Apple hasn’t pulled its stuff together, stopped worrying about the dang headphone situation so much, and made a phone that can take two numbers. I see so many other people at work who are carrying around a personal and work phone. I don’t want to use my work phone as my personal phone. I need more life separation than that. But I’m sick of carrying two phones around and the biggest deal is just getting two different numbers so I can have some separation. Ugh. Pull yourself together, Apple or Google, and figure out a viable solution that works. I’ve already put this idea out on Facebook for you to grab. I can’t do EVERYTHING for you.
Enough about that. Let’s talk B2B. I’m experiencing some serious pain points around a need to benchmark new ways of doing things merged with lack of large funds to hire expensive consultants and lack of time to chase down a bunch of companies to personally talk to me and also figure out who is even the right person with the right information. As much as I ❤️ HBR, it’s just not cutting it in this case. I need more in-depth case studies or information and I need to be able to pay for it on an as-needed basis. I don’t need some companies annual subscription to get “thought leadership” that’s as deep as the kiddy pool. I need more meat, in less time, on more specific topics, on an as-needed basis. Mmmmmmkay?
Maybe someday I’ll stop whining about what the world needs to do for me and I’ll act on one of these ideas. Bills, babies, and actually liking my job means that day is not today.
