Launch Your Business With Confidence & Clarity
How to Find & Validate A Business Idea
With REAL Profit Potential
Millions of people each year think about starting a business.
Most of them will never do it.
They’ll spend their lives daydreaming about quitting their jobs, striking out on their own, and building a business that fulfills them. But they’ll remain stuck, waiting for inspiration to strike or nursing an idea that they never quite act on.
Will YOU Be Different From the Rest?
I’m sure you don’t want that for yourself. But the fact is, many people dream of starting a business – and few ever do.
What holds them back?
Two words: fear and uncertainty.
You’ve probably heard the statistics on small business failures: something like 80% of new businesses collapse in the first 18 months.
If you don’t deep-down trust that your idea will be successful – why would you even risk it?
And starting a business IS a big risk. It takes lots of time, lots of money, and lots of energy. And if it fails, it’s hard to get back on your feet.
So it’s natural to hesitate, to think it over, to delay.
Most people never realize that that there’s another option: they can validate a business idea BEFORE they commit to action.
So they wait. They tell themselves that starting a business is too risky, that the time isn’t right, that in a year… or two… or five… they’ll be ready to make the leap.
And in most cases, they never leap.
Maybe you can identify with that hesitation…
- Have you been spinning your wheels for months (or years), looking for an idea that feels right?
- Have you begun working on your new business in earnest – only to second-guess your decisions?
- Do you see others start their own businesses – and wonder why you’re not moving ahead as well?
- Are you excited by your idea – but unsure if it will be profitable?
- Are you overwhelmed by the number of directions you could take your business?
- Do you have an idea that you love – but no business model that would make it profitable?
- Do you have a giant list of things you’re interested in – but no idea how to turn that list into a profitable business idea?
If you answered yes to any of those questions, then relax – you’re totally normal. Almost everyone experiences the same doubts and questions when they consider starting a business.
But what if you didn’t have to? What if you could determine whether a business idea would be profitable – BEFORE you waste time and money pursuing it?
What if you knew how to test and validate ANY idea – so you knew up front whether it was worth your attention?
In fact, you CAN. And the most successful, savvy entrepreneurs know just how to go about doing it.
If that sounds appealing, then “How to Find Your First Profitable Idea” is for you.
In this course, I’ll guide you through the entire process of finding and validating a profitable idea for your business. I’ll show you:
- how to develop an idea you’re excited about
- how to analyze its strength and viability
- how to select the right market and positioning
- and – most importantly – how to scientifically validate your idea’s profit potential.
Once you’ve completed this course, you’ll know exactly where you’re going – and you’ll have full confidence that you’re headed in the right direction.
And that frees you up to do amazing things.
What If You Knew You Were Making the Right Choices?
Imagine starting your business feeling completely confident that you’ve chosen a great niche and a product with tons of profit potential….
Imagine launching your business in just a few months – and seeing profits begin to roll in quickly….
Imagine scaling your business rapidly…
…Doubling – then tripling – your revenues…
…And being ready to quit your job, retire early, or travel the world…
Faster than you ever dreamed possible.
All because you started from a position of clarity and confidence.
When you have doubts about where you’re going, you often don’t know what your next step should be. Or perhaps you do know, but you subconsciously avoid taking that step – because you’re not quite sure it’s moving you in a direction you really want to go.
According to Peter Shallard, a therapist who works with entrepreneurs, this is one of the great causes of procrastination in small business owners. Uncertainty about the next step balloons into uncertainly about everything – your business, your niche, your product. And that uncertainty is paralyzing.
But when you have clarity and confidence about where you’re going, the next step become obvious. And when the next step is obvious – and you harbor no secret doubts about the direction you’re headed – you’re very likely to TAKE ACTION on that next step.
Your Idea Is the Foundation of Your Business
Without a profitable idea behind it, a new business is doomed.
But most entrepreneurs make the same big mistake with their business idea. They dream up a product that they wish existed…and they assume that others will want (and pay for) the same thing.
They’re almost always wrong.
So how do you avoid making that mistake?
The folks at Chubby Brain have the answer for you. Chubby Brain was an Internet startup whose founders did exactly what most new businesses do. They had an idea that they thought would fun and interesting – and so they went out a built a product. They assumed that, because they liked their product, there must be millions of OTHER people who would like it.
In fact, no.
Even with great traffic, lots of press, and a good software product, Chubby Brain couldn’t find enough paying customers. Visitors landed on their website…and, finding nothing there they wanted, they bounced right off.
So eventually Chubby Brain shut down – a victim of that 80% failure rate.
And Chubby Brain is in no way unique. In the wake of their failure, Chubby Brain’s founders started researching. They investigated 32 failed startups and found that the number one cause of failure was that companies were simply not listening to their prospective customers.
Fortunately, Chubby Brain learned its lesson. After talking to the customers they DID have, the founders launched a new company – this time designed to provide services that people were actually looking for.
So it’s a happy ending.
(Well, except for all the time, money, and energy that the founders poured into a business that ultimately failed…)
Fortunately for you, there’s a way to avoid Chubby Brain’s mistakes altogether. You can research your market BEFORE you enter, and you can talk to customers (and even competitors) BEFORE you commit yourself to new business.
When you do that, you won’t be guessing about what people want to buy … or whether they’ll buy … or if there’s room in the marketplace for your offering. You won’t have made any assumptions about your customers or your competition.
Instead, you’ll have investigated, researched, and analyzed. You’ll have weighed the evidence, evaluated the competition, and gotten to know your future customers. You’ll KNOW that people will buy your offering – because you’ll have followed a clear, scientific process for testing and validating your business ideas.
And you’ll be pursuing an idea that you KNOW has legs.
Bullet-Proof Yourself Against Business Failures, Future Doubts, & Second-Guesses
In “How to Find Your First Profitable Idea,” I’ll show how to develop and validate a business idea that’s been rigorously tested and validated for profit potential.
This is the EXACT method I use with my Automated Business System (ABS) clients, who hire me to build them a highly profitable, six-figure business from scratch. And it’s the method I use in my own business, before I launch any new product or service.
In short, I know this method works because I use it regularly to create products and businesses (for myself and others) that SELL.

NOTHING speeds your business success like knowing that you’re on the right track … that you’ve done the vital work of vetting and validating your business ideas…that the business you’re building will help you attain your true goals.
And this confidence translates into speed. I see this all the time with my clients and students. Once we settle on an idea with which they’re really happy and confident, my clients LEAP forward. Instead of wasting time and energy wondering if they’ve made the right choices, they can apply themselves whole-heartedly to the hard work of building a new business. And as a result, they move FAST.
A profitable business doesn’t require years to build – especially in the online world. (My ABS clients are typically on-track to make six figures in their first year.) But you can’t move forward if you’re continually returning to the drawing board.
And THAT is the true benefit of “How to Find Your First Profitable Idea.” You’ll gain the confidence and clarity to keep moving forward, even when things get tough. And as a result, you’ll get where you’re going faster.
Why Should You Listen To Me?
I’ve been selling on the Internet for ten years – and I’ve been providing business advice for almost as long. I’ve worked with more than 10,000 clients in total – and my company builds a dozen brand-new businesses, from scratch, every single year. I’ve consulted with companies of every size and description – and I’ve spoken at conferences around the world.
And I’ve worked closely with HUNDREDS of new entrepreneurs, most of whom come to me with a desire to start a business… and only the vaguest ideas what they want to do.
In every case, these entrepreneurs feel stuck UNTIL they find the right idea. Once they KNOW that they’re on-track to a business that’s almost certain to be successful, something shakes lose. These newbies become product-creation machines, and they build successful businesses quickly. They get stuff done – and they create businesses that thrive.
