For many would-be entrepreneurs, the first step is the greatest hurdle: if you don't find coming up with new business ideas a natural process, you'll need to train yourself to think laterally. Coming up with ideas is the fun part of starting a business, though - at this stage, you aren't limited by money or time, so the possibilities are endless. Want to run a zebra petting zoo? Brilliant! Think there's a niche for chocolate cutlery? Wonderful! Don't be realistic - that's the next stage in idea development. Until then, kick back and allow your imagination to run wild.
