Today, I sat down with nonprofit staff members to generate ideas for them to reach more people and sell specific merchandise. With three of us, we filled two pages with ideas, and we each shared more insights and knowledge than any of us alone had started with.
We could have had these ideas any time, but we had to take time out, sit down together, and brainstorm to find them. And this is the best way to generate new ideas for your business.
How long has it been since you took time out from your business to brainstorm ways to improve it?
