Brainstorming and Why Two Minds Are Better Than One

As a business owner, do you ever feel stuck in your business? We often get so many ideas we don’t know which direction to go. Maybe it’s a new program idea you have but you’re not sure how to move forward. Or your business has stopped growing but you don’t know what changes you need to make. Brainstorming and bouncing ideas off someone else can move you past this block. Getting another person’s input can give us ideas and a perspective we otherwise would not have had.

This quote sums it up nicely:

“Many ideas grow better when transplanted into another mind than the one where they sprang up.” ~Oliver Wendell Holmes
