Your Big Idea And Making Money

My girlfriend turned me on to this show called “The Big Idea”, hosted by Donny Deutsch. I love this show. It shows how everyday people with simple ideas can make millions of dollars by pursuing those ideas. It doesn’t matter how simple or stupid the idea might seem Donny says go for it and you can make a million dollars.

Take the guy who combined a fork with a knife. He realized that we are always trying to cut meat, carrots and other things with our forks that are hard to cut with a fork. So what he did is made the side of the fork a knife and bam he’s selling millions of them. Or take the ladies that found out that anything you can put a stamp on, you can send it through the mail. They come up with greeting balloons and a million dollar business.

The show also takes from idea to the market of the product and shows just how simple getting your idea out to the public can be sometimes. You just have to want to do it and then do a little research and the next thing you know you are in business.

So if you have an idea that you think could make you some money, but figure you’ll never be able to do it, watch “The Big Idea” with Donny Deutsch on CNBC at 10:00 Eastern, but check your listings in other time zones and get inspired, get going and get to making money. And that says it all.
