What’s The Big Idea?

What's The Big Idea?So what is your big idea? It all starts with a dream, and enough courage to see it through.

But everyone has different dreams, and everyone has different ideas about what would make life perfect for them.

It reminded me of a tale I was told once, that I would like to share with you.

“There was a man who owned a fishing boat and everyday he would spend just a couple of hours working. When he had finished his fishing, he would go home and spend lots of time with his wife and family, enjoying the finer things in life and generally felt very happy.
A friend of his saw how his system worked and one day, chanced upon him sat in a bar having a drink by himself. He went over to him and said “Hey, I’ve been thinking about your business. You could get a few more boats and take on some staff; it would mean a lot more work though.”
The fisherman looked at his friend with a wry smile and asked “Why would I want to do that?”
His friend puffed his chest out with pride and said “Well, in a few years, when you have got everything up and running, you’ll be able to not work so hard, spend lots of time with your wife and family and take time to enjoy the finer things in life……..”

You see, it is not always about building a business until it is a gargantuan juggernaut – but rather, having an idea about how you would like your life to be, and fitting your business around that.

So what’s your big idea? How would you like your life to be? What could you do that wouldn’t take up too much time, but could bring you in a supplementary income?
