One of Dan and Ian ‘s favorite topics to discuss on this show is business ideas.

In particular, they love brainstorming with the listeners.

Coming up with a great business idea doesn’t come naturally for all of us, though we believe it really is a skill that you can learn and get better at.

Today, we are talking about the process behind generating business ideas. In particular, we are sharing five techniques that you might find useful.

We’ll also be revisiting some of the business ideas that we came up with on an earlier episode of this show from 2015 and seeing how they fared.

In the entrepreneurial world, it’s rarely questioned that “exiting” is the end goal of a smartly built business and a prestigious waypoint in a successful career.

In 2015, Dan Andrews and Ian Schoen sold their business for multi-seven figures, and although they don’t regret selling – there are many mistakes they made that were avoidable.

The book presents thought experiments designed to help you avoid similar mistakes.

Whether you are in the early stages of building a business or thinking of selling, this book is designed to help you build with the future in mind.

    For those trying to anticipate the market as Dan did with the weed market, my foresight (or wish) is that premium decaffeinated coffee will be an interesting market in 5 or 10 years.
