Hi BHW, This is going to be a long post, so please bear with me. First, a little about myself. I am a fulltime software engineer working 40 hours a week, working IM on the side. I have a great wealth of experience and knowledge. This site has taught me so much, and has provided a healthy monthly income on the side of my day-job. In any case, I just want to say, I know from start to finish, how to take an idea, invest in the right areas of outsourcing, and put it together to make a buck. I wake up everyday with 2-3 new "schemes", and I try to put them to work. Some work out, most die in a jar somewhere after the initial excitement wears off. I bet a lot of you know what I am talking about. Anyway, I don't know if this is the best place to post such a thing, but I wanted to throw it out there to see if anyone else is in the same situation or has some good advice. This community has always helped me, and I have tried to always give back when I could, although only shown by one "Thanks". My problem here is I have a larger idea, than the initial excitement has not worn off yet. In fact, it's a great idea when you are talking about the big picture - like it's revolutionary. I think comparable to how the big nasty G changed the world. I have some smaller steps to execute the larger picture, including a perfect niche to start. However, this idea has a quite a few steps. It requires Market Research, developing a business plan, getting investors, development on various platforms, executing sales, and all in while, beating competitors in this. (No one is doing my idea now, but a couple of companies in similar areas, it's almost obvious that they would move in the direction I want to go next) Now, the problem is, all this is way over my head. I've started by placing a listing looking for someone to do Market Research, but I'm not even sure exactly what I need. Obviously I could keep throwing my own money at this, but this idea needs perfect execution, and I know enough to know that I am over my head. Idea's are a dime a dozen, but it takes execution. How would YOU start executing an idea that you know is great, but you don't know where to take it / how to drive it? I know I need someone with experience to drive a project like this, but honestly , all my friends / associates / network I have doesn't really give me someone I know is capable to drive a project like this. Sorry for the long post, I'm just throwing this out there, any feedback is welcome, even some posts to put me on the right track.
