Default How to get more business ideas than you know what to do with...

it on Gene's lap and said
I got The Money - when can you start work?

Broke down and CRIED.

asked Mel a Question...

"Will you help me write the Script for this idea I have called, "Young Frankenstein?"

"Young Frankenstein" made 86 M*illion D*ollars.


"How could this happen? I was so careful. I picked the wrong play, the wrong director, the wrong cast. Where did I go right?" - The Producers

Thanks Glenn,

Great example and great post!

First, I had no idea Gene Wilder even wrote scripts... But wow, I checked it out, and you're right - "Young Frankenstein" was Gene Wilder's first movie script! (Co-written with Mel Brooks!)

It's in the interaction with others that we often get ideas...

You can get great business opportunity ideas talking to others too. What's the key?

I believe it's to... surround yourself with entrepreneurial types!

That is, those people who are actually doing it!

If you do that, you'll get more ideas than you know what to do with!

(Plus - if you're really into entrepreneurship - it's a heck of a lot of fun... )

Best wishes,
