Solve Problems

Don’t assume you know what people want.

May 02, 2017

It’s a simple principle, but it’s the foundation of entrepreneurship.

If you can solve someone’s problem or at least make it more convenient for them, you can make money doing that.

But don’t assume that because you are good at one thing that it’s the answer to everyone’s problem.

When you’re a hammer, everything looks like a nail.

Find a way to grow your skill set to adapt to what people want around you.

It’s more useful for them, and beneficial for you in the long run.

Instead of focusing on the metrics that you bring to the table, focus on solving the specific problem of another person.

You never know what you might learn if you just ask people what they want.

You can be the person to help them achieve their dreams. Or you can be the person that makes their day a little better.

Oh, and you can make money doing it.
