As you check our list of small business ideas ask yourself:

Can you make it, say it, sing it, serve it ,

Does someone else deserve it?

Band it , brand it, play in the sand with it?

Churn it, burn it, turn it or maybe learn more about it?

Dump it, pump it, bump it or be the Gump of it?

Find it, fix it,flip it or write a list of tips for it.

Take an idea apart. Look at it from a different perspective, a new angle. Don’t say no too quickly. Let it simmer, give it a kick, come back after a good nights sleep and some ideas will stick.
