Don’t Reinvent the Wheel – Build a Better Mousetrap — 31 Comments

  1. Great tips! My husband has his own electrical business and while he can’t really “reinvent” the way the work is done, he can do other things.

  2. Great tips! I love this post, my business partner and I talk about how we are just doing it better!

  3. Great tips! I used to think that I needed to come up with something completely different to sell as a craft but I agree with you. Making something unique doesn’t have to mean coming up with something never before seen.

  4. Great suggestions. I am a firm believer in not re-inventing the wheel. Why make life more challenging?

  5. Thank you for these great tips…I am always looking for ways to better myself and business!

  6. Great words of wisdom there. Instead of trying to do something new how about making what you have better. Thanks for sharing.

  7. In the blogging world, there is always something new popping up as far as technology and social media. Just keeping up to date and trying to master them is enough for me, I don’t need to reinvent the wheel! LOL!

  8. I have heard this SO much in my seven years of working online. Everyone wants to come out with something new, but really all you need to do is improve on something that already exists to be successful! I’ve been thinking about how I can make blogging easier for those wanting to their start. I’m going to take information I have and make it easy to digest — not try to come up with an entirely new way of doing things!

  9. It is important to do something that is new and original. Helps with success!

  10. “There’s nothing new under the sun”… true in many ways. I do agree, find ways to reinvent what you already know and have – make it better and fill a need that isn’t being met.

  11. I need to stop overcommitting. I work full time out of the home, while also keeping freelance clients on the side. I can’t do both to the best of my ability.

  12. This is great motivational advice. Being an entrepreneur is quite the accomplishment but it does take a lot of hard work. It pays off in the end though!

  13. I agree with you. You don’t need to re-invent the wheel – just add some fancy new rims to it. why do all the heavy lifting if it already been done – build and improve upon what is already out there!

  14. It can be super hard to grow a business. I have been trying to make my photography and Graphic Design business get off the ground for years now. These are some great tips, thank you!

  15. I don’t have a business of my own, but it’s an excellent point. My hubby has to fight that one constantly at work.

  16. Excellent advice. Too often we beat ourselves up trying to be different and standout in a very crowded marketplace. There are some areas where you need to put a new spin on something old; but for the most part you can use the blueprint of what has been done before as a model for your own business plans – while inserting your own authentic voice of course. Thanks for sharing!

  17. This is a great post. I don’t have my own business, but my sister is thinking of starting one. I will definitley pass this along!

  18. Great advice. Thanks for sharing it with your readers.

  19. Thanks for this, I am always interested in growing my business and learning about what I am doing wrong!
