    LOVE the concept of starting with people’s pain instead of your own idea. This is so practical and very helpful. Thank you!

    Hi Elijah,

    There are three young men that I work with that I feel aren’t motivated (We all work at a national call center) They all sit in the same cube, making lewd jokes and coming up with stupid plans and I feel like they just bring each other down and the rest of the office. Also at any office function they put me down in front of our colleagues. They are just a couple of burnouts and I really want to start my own business so I don’t have to see them anymore. Would you be able to provide me with some help?

    My goal is to be able to run my business from my garage as I just got a refrigerator out there that I’m pretty excited about. Any help you can provide would be great, E.

Here’s a blog post that could help you get started in thinking about starting your business.
