Hi Donny!

I think I may have stumbled onto something BIG! What do I do now that I have this big idea? Who do I go to? What should my first step be?

Hi Anabela,

If you’re sitting on a big idea right now, an idea that could make millions, it’s time to get started! Don’t let anything stand in your way. Don’t listen to the naysayers or anyone who might dismiss your idea and tell you it won’t work. Keep charging ahead and when in doubt….DO!!!

I’ve seen hundreds of folks who have turned their big ideas into millions. They all share one common theme –

PASSION. They are doing what they love. I have never met a truly successful person who wasn’t fired up about their work. Most of your waking hours are spent working, and if you don’t love what you’re doing, you’re not going to be happy day-to-day. I always tell aspiring entrepreneurs, when Sunday night feels as great as Friday night, you are doing what you love.

Now you have to ask yourself, "Where am I going with this idea?" What actions am I going to take?" NO action, NO story. It’s so easy to say "I have an idea" but you know what –

everyone’s got an idea. You have to do something to put yours into action!

Take baby steps. This could mean you start doing research on the internet or you walk around stores and look around. You might go to a tradeshow, draw a picture of your idea, whip up your idea and have your friends over to try it! Check out the Tools and Applications page my Big Idea website for useful information and website links which will also help you get started. Every action or step you take will move you one notch closer. Put one foot in the front of the other and don’t stop! Best of luck Anabela and keep me updated on your progress!
