The sun is shining, I slept last night, and I have a feeling that it’s going to be an all-around great day here.
Did you know today is “Swap Ideas Day”? In honour of that, I’ve got a few ideas for brainstorming and sharing ideas that you could use if you’re having trouble coming up with ideas for your business.
Today’s Read: 5 Tips for Brainstorming Ideas
I don’t know about you, but every once in awhile I get into a creative funk, where nothing seems to flow and new ideas for products and articles are hard to come by. That’s when brainstorming sessions can come in handy. So, today I have 5 tips for brainstorming effectively…
Tip #1 – Get outside input. Instead of going at it alone, get some help. Gather a few of the most creative people you know and trust for a group brainstorming session. After all, two (or three or four) heads are better than one. These other participants may come up with some great ideas that may never have occurred to you otherwise.
Tip #2 – Write everything down. Even if you come up with some wild ideas, write them down anyway. They may be more viable than you think! Some of the greatest breakthroughs in history came from ideas that were considered as pretty outlandish at the time. Write it all down and revisit it later.
Remember, this is a time for gathering ideas, not for shooting ideas down. Avoid discouraging participants in your group because they won’t participate as freely and they might keep the perfect solution to themselves.
Tip #3 – Get creative! If you can’t see a solution right away, think of the problem from a fresh perspective. Look at it from a different viewpoint and maybe a new solution will present itself. Traditional solutions don’t have to be the only way to solve problems and getting creative may get the ball rolling towards the ideal solution!
Many successful entrepreneurs have a talent for observing people’s wants and needs. Then they find or invent a creative new solution. Watch the world around you and don’t be afraid to experiment with new ideas or unusual solutions.
Tip #4 – Do an idea mashup. Whether you’re brainstorming on your own or as part of a group, don’t be afraid to do a mashup of several ideas. Sometimes great ideas are born as twins – in the course of a brainstorming session you might come up with two halves of a perfect solution. Don’t be afraid to look at the results in an unconventional way.
Tip #5 – Ask questions. This works especially well in group brainstorming sessions. Encourage plenty of questions about everyone’s ideas. Questions can lead to a basic idea being fleshed out into a workable solution, and that, of course, is what a brainstorming session is all about!
Being able to solve problems and come up with new ideas is a skill that makes your life so much easier! Using these tips to brainstorm new ideas and solutions will help to keep your idea jar filled.

New Training: Easy Party Printables
Amy has a new training available on creating Easy Party Printables, and I have a quick read through the main guide last night. I’m intrigued enough after reading to test out of few of her ideas in my own Etsy store over the coming months.
Party printables are a huge niche , and according to Amy’s research the average American will host SEVEN parties and year. Think about all the reasons people host parties:
- Baby and Bridal Showers
- Holiday and event parties like Halloween, Christmas, Super Bowl
And here’s some food for thought on the whole niche of party printables. The Canada Post office is getting in on the POD act by allowing you to print your own stamps and postcards now too! I came across this page when I was reading the news this morning!
Amy’s new training includes everything you need to take advantage of this niche. You get:
- The In-Depth Easy Party Printables PDF Guide – 90+ pages
- Over The Shoulder Video Training
- Done-for-you templates with commercial rights. NEW: These come in both easy to edit PPT format, and Canva! Plus tutorial videos so you can easily customize each template.
- Supplemental content such as worksheets and checklists to make profiting even easier.
- Bonuses and more!
Check it out here and pick up your copy for only $19.99 from now through September 13.
