The world is full of “problems”

Are you a problem solver?

Do you see yourself or your product/service or your business as a solution to someone’s problem?

If you were a problem solver and you were to go and find everyone in your town who has a complaint or a problem, how many complainers would you find?

Would you be able to persuade some of them to pay you to solve their problem for them?

If you were to read the local paper every day, which I recommend, do you think you would find at least one story about someone who has a problem that you could help them solve?

Even if they couldn’t afford to pay you your price, do you think you could find someone, a sponsor, a corporation, an agency, a government department who would consider paying you to solve this person’s problem?

If you have a problem, where do you look for solutions and how much are you willing to pay, or are you a “do-it-yourselfer”?

If you are a “do-it-yourselfer”, then aren’t you showing others by your example that everyone else should solve their own problems also?

Do you shop locally? Do you encourage everyone you come in contact with to shop locally? If you did would some of that support and enthusiasm for local retailers, producers, manufacturers, and farmers rub off on you and your business?

This is something to think about. You need to know who you and your business are, what you believe in and what you are willing to spend your money on to support.

There are many problems out there waiting for you.
