Sorry, Am I Boring You?

YawnI have been having some discussions with fellow entrepreneurial types on another web site about how to be creative with your business. I was given the advice that instead of focusing on what other people “need,” try to provide them with what they “want.”

My biggest hurdle to doing that is probably the fact that by nature, I am a very logical, very unemotional, thinking kind of person (except when I am dealing with kids). I tend to see the world very much in black and white. My natural viewpoint is: to find a need that I can fill with my personal abilities, interests and passions, and then simply provide the materials to meet that need. I am beginning to see that such an approach severely limits my ability to influence the world.

As I go back looking over the previous posts I have made on this web site, I see that my posts are very much fact oriented, full of lists, and probably contain 0% emotional content. It just sets me off thinking again…

What I am trying to say here is that I am open to suggestions. Anyone who may actually be reading this site who has an interest in a music program for your children, could you please help me out here by letting me know what it is that you might really want from a business dedicated to supporting you in your efforts to give your children a music education.

I suppose I have not been doing a very good job at drawing in potential customers, simply because there is not much of interest here. I am willing to make the effort to be a bit more transparent and engaging, but I am sure I will need a lot of support!

Anybody willing to help me out?
