After reading over many posts by individuals whom seem to be very eager to help others new to the scene and also have some experience in the field themselves; it has really solidified my idea of the site I wanted to create. The site would be similar to that of Wikipedia. A group of people coming together to help one another. Except this would be the wikipedia of business mentoring. It would be more like a think tank for businesses and business ideas. Think of it as "open-source thinking". Now I do not want to release too many ideas as to how I would get this off of the ground but, put simply, it would go something like this. There are individuals on the website who have a certain background/expertise in a field, such as(MLM, finance, taxes...) These individuals would be the "managers" of sub-groups which would have other members, either interested or with background in the field who would talk these ideas through, modify them accordingly to make them really solid ideas that would work in a real-world situation. Through open collaboration and harboring the creative spirit of many individuals I believe that businesses could increase their efficiency when coming to us with ideas and asking for help. It would be like a consultation firm. Ideas A,B, and C are sent in from businesses requesting consultation on ways to improve their current situation. The managers from the group to which it relates will decide which idea is most likely to succeed and prioritize that as project 1, 2, 3 et cetera. I really think this would be a fun project and help all individuals involved learn a lot about what works/doesn't work and even let them "test out" their ideas before investing time/money into their ideas. Only good things can come from something like this I believe. Yes the dark area of intellectual theft plays a role but, someone who steals an idea most likely doesn't have the capacity which is needed to understand how the idea would have to operate in order to be successful. I apologize for such a long winded article it was not this long in my head but, I kept coming up with more and more ideas as I continued to write. All feedback would be greatly appreciated!
