Don’t Start A Business, Solve A Problem


The problems people encounter in their lives rarely change from generation to generation. The products they hire to solve these problems change all the time.

The importance of solving a real problem cannot be overemphasised if you intend to start a business that can survive. There are hundreds of thousands of startup ideas that have been launched but guess what, only a few are actually in business today.

Are you solving a compelling problem? One of the most important questions you should be asking yourself is whether you are solving a real problem with a great and unique solution and what you need to do to keep that solution relevant as you grow.

What ever you are doing now or intend to do, make sure your startup idea solves a problem now and will still be relevant tomorrow. No business is ever safe, ask yourself if you will still be around in the next five, ten or twenty years.Discovering what people want isn’t always easy, but the most efficient approach is to try to solve the simplest problem you can and get it in front of users.

Don’t just start any business, solve a real problem and you will not struggle making it a real business.

How do you create a product people want to buy? You need to answer these 3 simple questions.

1. Who am I serving?
2. What do they need/want, and are ready to buy?
3. How can I reach them and persuade them?

Jeff Bezos is famous for saying “Focus on the things that don’t change”. The problems that people and businesses encounter don’t change often. The ways they can be solved changes almost yearly. So it stands to reason that making things people want should start with the “what people want” bit, and not the more tempting “things we can make”.
