To Go Where Your VisionPoints, a few inspiration points for you and your business.

A mediocre idea that generates enthusiasm will go further than a great idea that inspires no one.
—Mary Kay Ash

A “million-dollar idea.”

Everybody’s got one.

Or wants one.

Or knows someone who’s got one, and is guarding it jealously.

Maybe you’re waiting for yours?

The thing about million-dollar ideas (and million-dollar-idea men and women) is that they’re a dime a dozen. This stymies some people, believing they’re not “ready” because some mystical lightning bolt hasn’t hit them yet, but you probably know at least one person who generates “great” ideas all the time—then does nothing with the ideas. Because lightning bolts rarely get up and do the dirty work for us.

So if you’re sitting around on your two-bit idea, worrying that you can’t make a go of it because it’s not The Next Big Thing, stop worrying.

You’ll make a go of it if YOU are the kind of person who can Make A Go Of Things.

If you can do your research and plan (further than you think!) in advance, stick with your plan for the long haul, create an Experience that’s worth talking about, and connect with your customers, you’ll make a go of it. Even if your widget is not the most original widget in the world.

While other people sit around, guarding their ideas, if you’re the type who can’t wait to make it happen, day in and day out, you don’t have to worry about whether the idea is worth a million dollars.

The real million-dollar idea is, “Let’s shout about this until we’re hoarse. Let’s get customers so thrilled that they shout about it. Let’s make this happen!”


Grow and be well,
