Should I welcome my colleagues' ideas in an optimistic or pessimistic way?

Investing time and money requires expertise and experience. And luck. If you have an idea or if you're considering someone else's idea, be critical and cautious.

Not all plants (ideas) are beautiful (attractive) but they're all useful to an extent, find out why


But also be open to a great new opportunity! It's often too easy to reject new ideas rather than taking the time to analyse them. No one wants to miss the opportunity of investing in the next Google or Apple.

Of course there's no simple feedback to give to someone exposing a new idea to you and unless you really know the matter well, you'll need some research first to cover the different dimensions of the problem being solved. Do you have the time to do it yourself? Do you have the expertise for it?

This is where Business Ideas comes in handy. The community will answer your questions without having you to reveal your idea if you want to keep it private. In return the answers will benefit to all members and foster further questions. Feel free to ask your questions at any point in time, they'll always be welcomed with respect.
