Welcome. Congratulations to you for carving time out of your busy schedule to discover how to make a mint from your mind.
I agree with Robin Williams that words and ideas can change the world and your world for good.
If your goal is to produce one-of-a-kind ideas you can monetize, you’re in the right place.
You’re about to discover how to generate commercially-viable ideas (what I call “equity ideas”) that are so interesting, unique and bottom-line beneficial, people will gladly pay for them.
Most importantly, you’ll learn how to act on your ideas and turn them into income.
The premise of this book and my approach to this topic is that ideas in our head help no one.
Ideas themselves don’t have the power to change the world and become a profitable reality until we turn them into a tangible product, service or business.
That’s why this book provides you with a step-by-step SYSTEM on how to become an IDEApreneur who consciously and strategically:
a.increases your flow of ideas
b.assesses your ideas for uniqueness and money-making potential
c.positions, packages and communicates your ideas so they get noticed, respected and bought
d.markets, merchandises, monetizes your ideas through a variety of strategic business activities
Best-selling author Kurt Vonnegut was asked, “What’s the secret to writing a great book?” He thought about it for a moment and then said, “You’ve got to be a good date for the reader.”
My goal is to be a good date for you.
I promise not to waste time on abstract theories that don’t work in the real world. You’re about to learn proven techniques and tools you can use immediately to generate marketable, memorable, merchandisable ideas that get noticed and get bought.
