Every product you own was, at one point, just a simple idea. It was conceptualized by someone, who then turned it into a business, and eventually made money from it.
Many business ideas might sound absurd at first, and indeed many people are heavily skeptical about some of them. But sometimes, entrepreneurs do have the last laugh.
Not every idea works, but some of those that do, didn't necessarily sound great when they were first pitched. Imagine someone telling you that they were going to become rich by selling rocks as pets? You would most likely burst out laughing and think of it as some sort of a joke, right? Well, one man didn't agree and proved everyone wrong.
Many seemingly wacky ideas turned into multimillion-dollar businesses. Simple (yet genius) ideas made a whole bunch of new millionaires.
