Here’s how to know if your business idea is actually good

Today’s question is:

“How do I know if my ideas are any good?”

But would they pay for it? That’s the number one question you need to answer before starting.

I like to use a demand matrix to plot this out. If you take a look at this demand matrix, there are four different quadrants: High End, Golden Goose, Labor of Love, and Mass Market. Take a look at this:



Really study it. Think about different products, like the iPhone, that might fit into various quadrants.
