Over the past 2 weeks, I’ve had a lot more time on my hands than usual because of my encounter with Chicken Pox. At first, I was was worried and trying to figure out how I can still get things done for work so that I could still meet my deadline. The pain and the drowsiness from my medication had other ideas for me. They left me with no other choice but to banish all deadlines from my head and focus ona speedy recovery. I ended up spending my time-
- watching the Apprentice UK
- skimming some RSS feeds.
I was not doing any massive amounts of work or anything spectacular, however I found people to be very interesting it the things I read or was thinking about. These people might have found themselves doing some of the same things if they did had more time at their disposal. However, the reality is that we don’t get a chance to do everything we would like to do. That’s the problem. Someone has a need. To convert this into a business idea all we need to do it to fill that need.

The Simple and Concise Idea
All the ideas above are good ones and they have be already proven, however these ideas are not quite the simple and concise idea.
Many persons find it hard to do the necessary research to keep abreast of all the changes happening in their fields. This is true for many industries in the Caribbean. Many of our industries do not have a very strong online presence and regular updates is a foreign idea.
Finding out new developments, problems and news of your industry, could be a nightmare sometimes even if you are well integrated into the industry. Generally speaking, there is no trusted place for everyone to go to get simple, concise and timely updates on things happening in your industry.
I challenge you to do just that for your area of expertise. Build a blog and post on it regularly. In many cases you are getting the information coming at you already so its its just a case to post it. Once you become known as the place togo to for all the info. People will send you stuff to post.
Take a few moments to think about how you can work it into your routine. A few minutes a day to make a concise and simple blog post, then repeat it the next day or the next week. Depending on how often you want post. Some of you already have blogs and are struggling for something to write about.
Newflash!!! Just listen! look into your your inbox, listen carefully during you next conversation and all your blog posts fall right in your lap, literally!
You will be surprised at how much value you can bring into the lives of the busy people in your profession by just committing to this simple and concise business idea.
How will it make money? Well I can’t tell you everything!!!! Use your creative Caribbean intellect
