Yes, we have all heard it before from our friends, family, associates and colleagues: "your plan or idea will not work". 

After years of proving the naysayers wrong, I recommend that you do not pay attention to people who doom your endeavors without having any practical or documented expertise in the subject matter.

On the other side of the coin, it is true that some ideas do fail. Often, the failure is only the first round of the idea you thought was a finished product. Meaning, after you review the first round faux pas, using your keen eye and bright mind, you identify the component that did not work and you fix it.

Typically, any idea developed from scratch has to meet some important requirements:

  1. The idea must solve an existing problem or enhance an already good situation.
  2. The idea must not be easily known by the masses (or it would have discovered already).
  3. The idea must be easy to implement or execute.
  4. The idea must be accepted by the client as a solution.
  5. The idea must deliver unquestionable ROI.

We hope you enjoy the show.
