What a fitting title for a short brainfart. I know I’m over a month late and I’ll probably be stabbed 23 times for it. If you don’t get that joke then I suggest you put down that xbox controller and go watch some History Channel.
I want to just Ask a quick question about startup ideas and being too late. I recently had a few cracking ideas and have found that most of the good ones have been taken! Some of them have been for profit and others just for fun. it just feels like every time I get a good idea and I think I’m being creative and unique, it usually only takes a quick google search to find that someone has already done it in some way or another.
So my question is: If you can do it better than the last guy, should you go for it?
I mean, is it really worth completely writing off a legitimate business idea just because someone else has already got something out there that is similar? My guess is that the answer is not as clean cut as I think because each idea and circumstance will be unique.
If the premium WordPress theme market is anything to go by then I guess I have my answer.
I think this topic warrants some discussion. What do you think?
