Business Ideas - Confusion and Decision

Business Ideas – Confusion and Decision

Business ideas confusion has had me paralyzed. I haven’t been able to think of anything else. I am not sure if what I am doing is good enough to be part of my business ideas. Is designing Project Life Journal Cards, Printables, and Planners a valid business. Sure it is but what about the second component. Sharing encouragement, motivation, and inspiration while developing a successful online business despite having a mental illness; is that a valid business. It sure is but what about together?

Business Ideas Dilemmas

I have been going over in my head what the experts say to do in order to find good business ideas. Take your passion/obsession and combine it with your skills/knowledge and find your specific audience and bingo you have your niche. My problem is I don’t feel like I have a passion or skills to work with. I don’t know what I am good at. The mental illness, whether it is the bipolar, depression, ADHD, or the anxiety is at work preventing me from feeling passionate about anything.

Have you found yourself in the same boat? Is your mental illness preventing you from enjoying your work, hobbies, or interest? Medication is not a cure-all and it sure isn’t working for me on this issue. What do you find yourself doing in order to enjoy these things if you are?

Business Ideas I came up with

Passion for, not much of anything. I have said eating and sleeping are my major passions right now. If I had to try and pick a passion that I have had it would be:

  • Entrepreneurship
  • Digital Scrapbooking
  • Shiny new objects (ha ha)
  • Creating social media accounts
  • Pretty colors
  • Crafts
  • Instructional Design
  • Training

Skills that I believe I have, but not necessarily an expert at are:

  • Pocket-style scrapbooking
  • Reading
  • Networking
  • Software Installation
  • Build a PC
  • Creating social media accounts
  • Instructional Design
  • Training

My choice for a specific audience for any of these would be women but not just any woman; a busy woman or a woman with mental illness or to even get more specific a busy woman with mental illness. Not sure if that is getting too specific but I am sure there are a lot out there.

Business Ideas Decision

My first thought is to stick with my initial choice like I said above. I don’t want to work with clients one-to-one, so that leaves out creating social media accounts. Software installation could be done with a quick cheat sheet guide but mainly pc in hand, so that leaves that out.

I want my business to focus on passive income so I am not dealing directly with clients except for customer service and that would be via email. I could use my skills of Instructional Design and Training but I am not sure what topic I could cover. Unless I cover digital scrapbooking. That is a thought. Did I just find my niche? Instructional Designer/Trainer of Digital Scrapbooking for busy women with mental illness?

Should I include those with mental illness or leave it out. Now damn it that is gonna bug me.

Should I focus on just Digital Scrapbooking or Project Life Digital Scrapbooking? See what I mean by confusion.

Should I just make journal cards for Project Life or come up with another angle?

My blog now focuses on motivating those running a business with a mental illness but how can I motivate when I am having issues as well. I do think that I could include my mental muck on how I am handling it and motivating myself. Hmmm, does that make any sense?

Have I confused you as much as I have myself? I think that it is enough confusion for now. I hope you are having a successful day not letting the mental muck get in the way

Until next time…
