The most effective way to build a small business is to find a market that is looking for something and then give it to them.
Most people get this backwards. Most people decide to start a business because they know how to do something or because they are convinced that Uncle Chuck’s Fire Roasted Turnips are the greatest thing since sliced bread.
The problem is that most of the time nobody really wants what we got and then it’s really hard work to convince them they need what we got.
Remember this…people buy what they want, not what they need.
So then how do find what they want.
