I often come across successful small businesses and wonder how on earth they came up with their ideas. Some of these small businesses start from the most unusual circumstances. Take this article, written by Justin Petruccelli on Entrepreneur.com, for instance, “They’ve Got Baggage“. This article is written about Doyle Evans who in 1970 started selling contents of unclaimed baggage in Scottsboro, Alabama. The business quickly grew into a 40,000 square foot building which currently attracts more than a million tourists to the small town yearly.
Is any business idea too crazy? I think this success story reminds us that even an idea that seems unlikely, is possible. We shouldn’t limit our thinking to just black and white. What about all the fancy colors in between that make life fun and interesting? Using imagination and creativity could create a lasting business that benefits your local community for years to come like Mr Evans’.
