Concept / Pre-start-up

Many people have good business ideas but don't make them happen. Why?

There can be many reasons, such as...

  • They lack the self-belief to follow up and take it any further.
  • They allow well-meaning family or friends to pour cold water on the idea.
  • They lack the capital required and/or cannot imagine how they can obtain the funding required to get it off the ground.
  • They lack the skillsets or knowledge to take things further.
  • They are already too busy or cannot manage to free up the time it will take to get started.
  • Someone already seems to be doing it, and probably better than they think they can.
  • They just can't find the energy or drive to do it!


In all of these cases, there is a common theme - the need to do proper market research work and assess the viability or feasibility of the project is crucial if you want to bring your concept to reality.

I have had more business ideas than I can possibly remember, and I CAN remember starting over twenty business ventures.  What I also found along the way though was that just because I COULD start a business venture didn't mean that I SHOULD start it!

For a little while, I was registered as a Business Mentor at Curtin University's Centre for Entrepreneurship, which I believe sadly ceased being funded, but I have now also privately mentored many would-be entrepreneurs to help them assess their concept, and where it stands up to scrutiny, take it through this pre-start stage.

Everything begins as somebody's concept...
Beware the naysayers!
It's vital to do the market research
