Still looking for good business ideas. Does something here sound good to you?
I had an interesting conversations with 2 of my friends.
Both of them have non-tech businesses (tattoo place and renovation business).
Both recommended to basically quit my job, open 1 person freelancing business and build a company from there.
Their idea is that there is for sure a big need for various IT services - making websites, online shops, applications, whatever. Instead of trying to come up with "a software idea", they tell me to just build something other people want.
Starting from smaller jobs, building portfolio and contacts. If later there is more jobs than I can handle - recruiting my friends to work with me etc... until a business grows to be an actual company.
If on the way there is an idea for a product - awesome, but why to wait with working for yourself, when you can just... well.. begin right now.
Granted it's not as sexy, as having own Sass. It's like working in a software house but you are your own boss and you are working whenever you want / only if you need money, which is all what I wanted from this "making a business" thing.
That's what my friends did - just doing the same thing they do, but starting to work under "own brand" and immediately they started to earn more money and are more independent.
Hell, now they earn more money than me... Much more...
So what do you think? Are we overcomplicating the process of creating a business? Have some of you tried this "freelance route" to starting a business without a "startup idea"?
