60min Real Startup Ideas Custom4You


45 per hour - Virtual OK - Posted Mar 08, 2017

Hey guys, this offer is for 60 minute consultation (flexible depending on swapped service) on startup opportunities / idea generation for aspiring entrepreneurs who "want to own their own business, but just don't have a good idea". I specialize my current career in this specific topic and have completed my first 9 class course (1.5 hrs/class) all about opportunity recognition with breakthrough results for every participant.

The consultation is flexible based on your needs and can be oriented to two different purposes- real time ideas fit for you (leave the session with an opportunity identified) OR learn the methods and skill of idea generation and use the takeaways to recognize ideas on your own after class.

Real time idea generation:
I will quickly ask you questions about your life and business ambitions, background, skills, location, financial situation, how innovative or conventional you want to be, what tech skills or access to tech people you have, and how risk adverse you are. Then I will give you a few ideas of opportunities that are fit for you, which I have already identified in my past class and years of research that are waiting to be capitalized on.

Learn the idea generation skill:
I will tell you about the roughly 7-8 techniques I teach in my course and we can focus in on one or two of highest interest. They are:
1) Copy an Existing Idea
2) Niche and Gap Method
3) Combination Method
4) Value Levers
5) Business Model Method
6) PESTEL Method
7) Problem Method

Dalton was incredibly helpful in formulating a business plan. He asked questions that helped me define what was once a vague idea, he invited pushback... and counter-arguments to shifting the business model in a certain direction. Dalton also shared several resources and links relevant to my questions. Overall Dalton was friendly, encouraging, and didn't give up when my internet connection gave us problems! I would strongly recommend his services to anyone considering entrepreneurship. show more
