Have you ever told anyone a business idea that you had and they responded back to you in a discouraging fashion by telling you that your idea sucks? Well this happens to all of us, and if you always listen to these type of people, you will never get anywhere in your life.
A few months ago I met up with Ben Huh. You probably don’t know him, but you probably have heard of his blog, I Can Has Cheezburger. Now if he asked his friends about his LOL Cat blog idea or even if he asked me, I probably would have told him it was a dumb idea and that no one would care to read a blog with pictures of cats.
Now instead of asking people what they thought about the idea, he decided to take a gamble and follow his gut. Within 1 year, the blog became so popular that it made enough money to allow him to quit his job so he could become a full time blogger. Plus, Technorati marked his site as the 10th most popular blog on the web, which isn’t too bad considering all the naysayers that didn’t like the idea at first.
I know many of you are afraid to take the plunge by entering into a new venture, but if you never take that plunge, you won’t ever succeed. As a wise man once said, “don’t ask your family or friends for advice because they see you as they’ve always known you, and not as who you want to be.”Â So instead of asking others what they think of your idea, go out there and just do it.
PS: If you have any business ideas that you are not sure on, feel free to leave a comment and I will give you feedback on your venture.
