Business? What business?

May 24, 2013 - Elliott Draper

If you have browsed around our new site, and you don’t happen to own or run a business right now, you might have wondered - “why do they keep going on about my business? What business?”. The simple truth though is that most people have dreams of running some kind of venture, whether it’s something they want to do for the experience, or for financial reward, and whether it’s something that’s a passion, or simply an opportunity. Almost everyone I speak to talks about “one day starting my own thing”. Why not make that day today?

Even if you have a full-time day job, there is no reason that you can’t start in on your dreams now. Evaluate your options, validate your ideas and concepts, prototype them in your spare time, and talk to people about your idea to get a feel for how it’d be received. Start small, but make sure you start. The more you work on your idea, the more you talk about it and share details about it, the more real it becomes - until one day, maybe it can pay the bills!

It’s true that here at KickCode we want to get across how focused we are on helping businesses be the best they can be, bringing our expertise to the table in order to help achieve goals such as increasing revenue. But “business” is quite a far reaching term - and it extends from a single person with a great idea, to startups, to established companies and corporations looking to improve or expand in a specific area.

So, if you’re asking yourself “business? what business?”, remember that your ideal hobby, activity or craft might actually be a great business idea - make sure to explore it!

In a future post we’ll talk more about how you can quickly validate business ideas using online tools, or to whittle down your ideas and pick the best one if you have a few of them! To make sure you don’t miss that post, or any other future posts, subscribe to our newsletter below.
