Of course, creating a business idea is easier said than done. You don’t know where to begin, whether it will work or not, and what actually a good idea is. However, there are certain rules that can help you sort it out.

Besides, one can copy and adapt an idea. You can find an already existing business model and introduce it to the market. The idea can be borrowed from another geographic market or industry. Analyse the markets of Western Europe and America. It’s important to select dozens or even hundreds of examples. Read Idea Factory, see where funds invest in, follow the ratings of successful startups.
Think of what you enjoy doing and what you are competent at. It’s possible to turn your hobby or competence into business.
It’s crucial to be up to date with all the tendencies developing in the world. You may realize an important tendency that can be a business project.
4. Focus on your Communication Environment
