Seize the opportunity to bring your idea to the market, and find an experienced mentor.

You might think that, given the recent economic downturn in the U.S., now would be a bad time to create a product and attempt to bring it to market.

But you’d be wrong. Even during a financial slump, consumer spending in the U.S. accounts for 60-70% of the national economy.

The fact is, there will always be certain products that consumers will find irresistible. As an entrepreneur, your main task is to identify such products, then use the right channels to promote them.

The products that sell even in a dismal economy are those which improve customers' quality of life without breaking the bank, because consumer spending is motivated by desire, not by necessity.

And when it comes to selling your product, the predominance of the Internet, especially social networks, means that nowadays you can easily work out of your home, selling your product online without having to fight for a place on store shelves.

Furthermore, social media can help you to connect with your customers, to understand and address their needs and desires, and — because you're closer to your customers — to react swiftly to the whims of the marketplace.

But even with the above in your favor, you’ll still need a lot of guidance. So find yourself a mentor who can give you some practical, firsthand advice — ideally someone who’s already successfully launched a similar product.

How do you find one? Begin by looking in your hometown, or search the web for successful entrepreneurs from your region.

Once you’ve found a suitable candidate, get your foot in the door by expressing interest in what they’ve achieved, even massaging their ego a little. Most people enjoy talking about themselves and will welcome the satisfaction that helping you to succeed will bring them.

There are many opportunities and people out there to help you get your business started. Now you have to grab the chance and start with one simple idea.
