An idea is the first step in the process of creating a business. Most ideas, no matter how brilliant they may seem, never actually end up becoming a business. This book explains how to:
- Look for new small business ideas.
- Evaluate ideas for their commercial potential.
- Unlock the strategies that turn an idea into a business.
English’s focus is on finding the seed of an idea and the process of developing it into a genuine business opportunity. He includes practical diagnostic ‘reality checks’ developed in his small business workshops. He also includes an analysis of changes in the Australian small business environment as result of Covid-19.
This practical volume is ideal for any budding entrepreneur looking for guidance on how to evaluate a business opportunity and build a commercial strategy around it. It will also be an ideal secondary reading for books on entrepreneurship and small business courses.
