A Potent Example of Why Niche Research Matters
It breaks my heart when I see people chasing after bad markets. Whether it’s because there is no market as in no one’s looking for what you’ve got or it’s a bad market because there’s too much competition (a little is good but too much makes it really tough), trying to build a business in a bad market just leads to disappointment, frustration and no income. So unless running a hobby business floats your boat, you need to research your market.
Don’t take my word for it, take a look for yourself.
