Describe your idea
I don't know because I've never done it. Ideas are easy to me. Developing software not that hard but something has been preventing me from selling.
My current project is the Excel Diet. It is a book, software and a website that helps you lose weight and keep it off. The biggest problem I think I have is that I can't get anyone in my family or I know to try the diet. I'm sure why the diet succeeded for me so far but part of it or even most of it might be that I'm trying to turn it into a business and the fact that I've gained the weight back would show that the diet doesn't work.
Other parts is that I've been going back and forth between writing a book and preparing a presentation. I've been unable to finish the presentation for some reason. Why? Maybe I'm afraid to finish it because it means I have to go up in front of an audience and present it.
Other reasons are I get stuck in a loop. I get distracted. I start stop start stop over and over and never finish.
Could also be that I'm a perfectionist.
I'm concerned that even if I sell books at $10 or $20 how many will I have to sell per year to quit my job 10,000 @ $10 to make $100,000 per year. I think I could try to sell the diet to high end clients for $1000 then I'd only need 100 clients per year. Also I think that if I could package it up as a business I could sell for $10,000 then I'd need only 10 clients.
