Don't just sit on your butt! Get out there... have drinks with friends, play a game of tennis, do gardening or go shopping... Just do something! Cause you never know what will trigger a heart pumping free business ideas just like how Yahoo.com started as a little hobby.
Founders of Yahoo.com, David Filo and Jerry Yang, were Electrical Engineering Students at Stanford University. In February 1994, they had this business idea of starting a list of favorite links on the Internet to keep track of their personal interests. It was their hobby and they took it as a working project.
Before they knew it, this list expanded from a list to having categories and subcategories.
They realised many people wanted a single place to find useful information on the world wide web. Word spread from friends to what quickly became a significant, loyal audience throughout the closely-knit Internet community. In just over 6 months, Yahoo! celebrated its first million hit day.
They realised that business ideas like that had massive potential and founded Yahoo! in March 1995. They were working on their strength and they eventually got help just like how I described in Effortless Success. They had venture capitalist investing nearly $2million for their expansion. They also managed to quickly establish a management team!
With that, they took absence and postponed their doctoral programs indefinately. Most people would have their friends especially family accuse them of making the greatest mistake in their life for missing out school!
Today, Yahoo! is a leading global internet communications, commerce and media company that offers a comprehensive branded network of services to more than 345 million individuals each month worldwide.
The point is free business ideas could happen as you were chatting in a cafe or playing tennis. Perhaps Jerry Yang got the idea as he was driving (which he likes to do). Whatever it is, sitting around is not going to get you anywhere! Just get yourself out and do something!
