100 Business Ideas

Heyo!

Happy Tuesday everyone! Hope you enjoyed the long weekend. Here's a few things to kickstart the short week. Enjoy!

1. 100 Business Ideas

One of my favorite things to do is chat about insane business ideas with friends. So I thought it would be fun to open source some of those ideas. I tried to come up with 100, but only made it to 15. Please add your own!

A few notes:

  • I'm sure some of these exist. The idea is that it's a business you could start and run, not a 100% original idea.
  • These ideas range from earning a little beer money to world domination.
  • I consider these ideas entirely open source. Use them! Add some more!
  • It would be really awesome if these list grew well beyond 100. I encourage you to share it around.

2. "If you repeated today every day for the next year, realistically, where would you end up?"

A simple and revealing post from Benjamin P. Hardy — Tell Me What You Did Today, And I’ll Tell You Who You Are:

We are all in complete control of how we spend our time. If we don’t believe we are, we have an external locus of control (i.e., victim-mentality) and will remain so until we claim personal responsibility.

3. "I have no idea what I am doing."

A great post from Buffer CEO Joel Gascoigne, who identifies something we can all relate to.

The key turning point was when I started to believe that I knew what I was doing. I let the comments, the kind congratulations and the small successes affect my mind. I actually thought I knew what I was doing.

4. Content marketing advice

Someone recently asked me for content marketing resources worth checking out. Here's the email I sent them:

5. Tweet of the week

This tweet comes from author (and friend) Ira Chaleff, whose new book Intelligent Disobedience: Doing Right When What You're Told to Do Is Wrong is getting rave reviews.

Have a great week!
