We here at The Working Blog can’t tell you where good ideas come from; we can only tell you what you probably already know—that when a good idea strikes, particularly one related to a new business venture, it can be almost impossible to put it out of your mind.
But then, why should you? Hopefully it’s not because you don’t know how or where to get started. In this day and age, there is no shortage of resources created with new entrepreneurs in mind. In fact, it seems sometimes that the hardest task is separating what’s most useful from all the white noise.
