Brainstorming New Business

Brainstorming New Business – so much fun!

If you want some help with someone other than with me, you need to talk with Jan Verhoeff. She’s the TOPS when it comes to marketing and wordsmithing. Spent 45 minutes on a new event for FTS, there is not enough “O’s” in good to describe her brain working. Working with Jan is like drinking from a firehose, you have GOT to take notes or lose the flow and her ideas. Thank you Jan Verhoeff!!!!!

Kevin Cullis – working on a new Garage Startup Program

Best known for his Parable of Talents.

Kevin, you ROCK. It’s so much fun matching wits, and brainstorming with clients who are determined to make such a huge difference for others. Thanks for asking me!

So then he says:

It’s not brainstorming, it’s BRAINHURRICANE with you.

Gale force marketing strategies.

When you’re a hurricane ripping the coast, you can do one of two things:

  • Clear the slate for new growth and construction.
  • Leave mass destruction in your wake.

I prefer to clear the slate for new growth and construction. There’s just something about clean, clear beaches, that appeals to my inner peace. The ideas fill up the shores with great sand bars, free flowing waters, and appealing vantage points. Everyone loves an open beach view.

Brainstorming New Business Marketing Ideas

There are as many ways to market your business as there are sands on that beach. But you have to find what’s right for you. I often share three to five great ways to market  your business, and drive the market home to your niche, because if you can’t do that, you won’t gain buyers for your products, but there’s something bigger than that…

There’s a method of marketing that brings the audience to you. We often refer to that as attraction marketing, and while that works well, I’ve found another, greater method that brings success long before you need it.

1 – Build a Tribe Based on Cause

What’s your cause? Make a difference. That’s it. I want to make a difference for others, by helping others to make a difference. Do I need to make money doing that?  Of course, I do. Because this is my business, but I’ve learned that if I’m true to my cause, the money comes. Money comes because I’m open and willing to market.

Read: I sell stuff.

I encourage everyone who is part of my tribe to offer their products and services for sale, but more than that… Encourage them to make a difference. I encourage them to make a difference in someone’s life, and improve their corner of the world.

2 – Be a Lighthouse in the Storms of Life

brainstorming new businessWhether the storm is at night or day, when you’re the lighthouse you offer hope and warning. You offer up a message that is not only needed, but rewarded with success. You send out your message whether anyone is there to hear it or not, because if you don’t share the message you’ll explode.

The message can’t be sent by anyone but you. It’s your message. And you’ll be rewarded for sharing it.

Go ahead, be a lighthouse in the storms of life, and in the sunshine. Make your business stronger by sharing a message that means something. Make a difference with your message. Brainstorming new business with a key message that will make a real difference in the world.

3 – Brainstorm Unstoppable Solutions

Here it is, the key to brainstorming your business success. Brainstorm  unstoppable solutions and share them. When you offer solutions to your readers, to your tribe, to your customers, the results benefit many.

The results of your unstoppable solutions are benefits to many.

Share your enthusiasm.

Let’s have coffee, and I’ll help you find your niche, your message, and your solution.

Join my tribe! Let’s talk.

  1. There is NOTHING like getting “in synch” with Jan when we BRAINHURRICANE how to improve things, whether it’s our business ideas, products, marketing, or customer service. One aspect that most people don’t understand that during any timeframe in which you’re coming up with new ideas is to not DISCOUNT them off the bat to keep the flow going, even if you get ridiculous with your ideas. You want to keep the ideas coming without stopping. With Jan, it can go overboard, but it spills into laughter. Truly one of a kind working with Jan. Thanks sister.

  2. Good Morning Jan,

    I’ve been awake a few hours now.

    Looking and thinking website, BLOG… looking up ADSENSE and trying to figure out if I can have my own Wikipedia page. A place I can tell my story, demographics and PII (personal items of information) aside.

    Found a place (, but it’s not quite it—captures too much demographic data–not like the government doesn’t already have it…my thought is to have a place people can tell their stories… I grew up with people telling stories about people. The stories of people tell the times of their lives and the events of their day and how they traversed them and continued forward. Everyone has a story to tell when people take time and listen.

    I have 2 Facebook pages (Living Today and Mastermind for America) and my defunct webpage “” the webpage focused on short stories and daily devotionals. I know many devotionals are done and there are a lot of stories to be told. There are also many sites that offer encouragement, usually famous quotes or insightful scripture verses–to me they seem fake.

    I’ve toyed with a few book ideas… one on Leadership as Christ led hid Disciples and how it applied in my Military service. The other I refer to as Autobiography of a Common Man. Looked at developing a Leadership Theory (I referred to it as Cognitive Humanism-thinking being) based on Christ as well, using Matthew 20:20-28 as a guide.

    Checked my web presence, something about me comes up in the first 10 posts at home and at work. Haven’t tried a computer that I don’t normally use..a test from the “outside” of my world.

    Thank You for providing substance in my emails.

    I get a daily barrage of e-mail messaging with little to no value, except for yours… these are like mining gold at Fort Knox, no bad places to dig.

    Have a tremendous day!
