As entrepreneurs, both Michelle and JoyGenea have no shortage of ideas. It’s more a lack of time to see them all through.

It may seem like the only people in your life who have ideas are creative people. Turns out, that’s not the case. But there are so many different ideas. The ideas we have come to see as Big Ideas are disruptive or energizing. We don’t always recognize our ideas about making something better (like putting the dishes away next to the dishwasher) as ideas at all. And we also don’t always recognize that the Big Idea we admire from someone else is rarely fully formed when it arrives in someone’s brain. It takes work - and more ideas - to make it reality.

So the secret to having more ideas is to actually see all the ideas you have through the day and make sure you’re not judging them harshly and dismissing them as they come.
