Josh and I always seem to come up with ideas. Ideas to start our own businesses. Ideas we'd like to sell to others. (Do people buy ideas? Cause we've got lots!)
Some are serious, like opening Chicken Scratch Books with the plan to sell my own items. Others are goofy, like website names.
Instead of trying to remember all of the ideas - including the goofy ones, which make great inside jokes - we started a little notebook to write them down.
Because you just never know when you'll want to circle back to a great idea.
And something I've learned and read about many times?
The best ideas come when we're not searching for them. They come to us when we go for a walk, when we're taking a shower, when we're driving, when we're cooking.
And speaking of ideas, I'm taking a great course and am busy making some big changes to this blog. I'll still share lots of great content - food! local food! community building! - but plan to get more focused and make changes to my branding and design. Stay tuned...
Take action! Try starting your own idea journal, and carry it with you for when a new idea pops into your mind.
