You have always liked the idea of working for yourself and feel that the time is right for starting a business. The only problem is that you don’t know the exact type of business you would like to start. You’re far from the first person to encounter this problem and you won’t be the last. Rather than let it hold you back from your dream of starting a business, consider some of the questions below to help you gain a sharper focus.

Consider Your Experiences and Passions

Have you ever worked for someone else and felt you could do a much better job offering the same product or service? If so, that already gives you one idea on places to start. However, you don’t have to limit your list of potential business ideas to paid work experiences. You can also look at volunteer work and life experiences that have taught you important lessons.

Building a new business based on your passion can bring a unique idea to the marketplace. Nothing is too small to consider. For example, perhaps you have an older pet that can’t get around the house too easily anymore. You feel passionate about animal rescue and making sure that older pets, in particular, find homes. Creating products for the senior pet population could be the perfect opportunity for starting a business.

Make Sure Your New Business Can Solve an Existing Problem

People need answers for everything from how to grow roses in the spring to how to save money for retirement. Businesses that solve a problem that other companies cannot resolve to tend to do best during the crucial first years. This might require an investment in market research to determine the most pressing pain points of your potential pool of customers. After all, you can’t offer a solution when you don’t understand the problem.
