I read a lot about start up and entrepreneurship. i'm willing to go every extra mile and to give all i can for starting my own business. I have a well good knowledge about Linux/Unix Systems - i learned for the last 15 years. I'm totally willing to start up, but currently I'm quite not sure about the product or service i should provide. i know it's a weird question, but in the product i see the essence of all, where i can stand behind and sell with conviction and belief. as well i have a good graphical eye and knowledge about WordPress, but currently its hard for me to get all my skills together and create a product and/or Service who sells good in switzerland. i am on the totally wrong way without the super idea about this, or i just search in the wrong direction?
Thank you for any advice.
This is an extremely vague question, but let's see if I can help you out. When deciding what product or service you're going to provide, it's very important to be sure there is product market fit and you have a unique selling point. When deciding what your products should be, you should first decide what "problem" you're solving.
I specialize in helping entrepreneurs get started and start the building phase. If you would like more guidance on how to get started or what product to create, shoot me a message so I can get more detailed information on what you're trying to achieve.
I'd love to help.
Although it seems like a vague question, let's try to analyze it better.
Create two lists.
In list 1, put the top 5 things that you excel at in Linux / Unix. And no cheating.
In list 2, put the top 20 prospective clients that you have identified. (if any).
Match skill to prospect, and see where that gets you.
You don't need to sell your services just locally.
You can sign up for sites like odesk and/or setup a site to offer.
- server audits
You can focus on folks who use self managed servers such as DigitalOcean, Linode etc.
You can have one time tasks or monthly/yearly maintenance packages.
Also make sure you feed you mind with good entrepreneurial content ( Mixergy, EO Fire, Smart Passive Income, Ask Altucher etc) so when the times get tough you'll be prepared.
