Where Has All the Originality Gone?

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedin
As time goes on, the internet seems to be turning into a large field of "sameness". Fresh, new ideas and concepts are quickly snapped up by competitors who want to ride on the coattails of success of similar companies. These actions of copy cat behavior are not limited only to the internet, but the internet has made it very easy for individuals to take advantage of someone’s hard work in order to create a business for themselves.

I know a large number of small business owners who spent years perfecting a business, creating a unique company after much planning and research, only to have someone come by and take all they have created and put up their own "shop" sign without any of the hard work.

 


Some have tried to be deceptive, ordering product from a company, to see exactly how things are done, and then attempt to duplicate the concept. Not only is this lazy, but in my opinion, ethically wrong. And….these people are typically found out which only hurts them in the long run.

If you want to work from home, and start your own home grown business, be creative! Be an individual and come up with some original ideas and concepts. While there may be many a business that has similarities, do not blatantly copy what obviously is a business born from originality, creativity and uniqueness. If you do see an idea by another home based business owner that you think is interesting and something that you could see yourself doing, be on the up and up and contact that individual. Let them know that you find their business model and idea something that you’d like to create in your own area. Ask if they’d be willing to share ideas and resources. Offer to pay for this sort of consultation as opposed to expecting that you can receive this information and direction for free. If they are open to this – great, if not – then you need to decide if you want to move forward with this similar business. If so, make sure that you are putting your own creative twists to the idea and making it your own.

Believe in yourself and what you can create and call your own. You will feel better about yourself and see greater success overall.
