Richard asks…

What did Nietzsche think of, well, niches?

We all know what Nietzsche was about: abandoning unworldly predicates and suppositions and elevating oneself above the herd via the Will to Power. But that’s the thing, practicing Will to Power in its most stripped down and rawest form is nothing short of animalistic, and it rarely brings about positive rewards in our current egalitarian society. If anything it’ll land you in jail. No matter how ambitious or passionate an individual may be, there are just some external forces that we incapable of controlling, like the weather or the socio-economic classes we are born into.

What does Nietzsche suggest? Niches, maybe? Finding a field of expertise in which to invest time and energy? A sort of outlet or conduit by which the Will to Power is expressed despite its ineffectiveness in other aspects of one’s life?

New Niche Finder answers:

He was promoting the idea of ‘survival of the fittest’. Part of that would be to adjust to your situation. Politicians do it all the time-that’s part of the reason they contradict themselves so much. I guess if there’s an ultimate goal, he would be against settling in a ‘niche’ and act according to the situation until you’re satisfied with where you are.

Mary asks…

Is it wise to start two business at the same time?

I have two ideas for a very niche but underserved market and I’d like to get my foot in the door now with both of them. They are two very different businesses that target the same market. When both are up and running they can actually support each other.
One is a publication and the other is clothing manufacturing.
The publication could potentially serve as an advertising medium for the apparel.

Should I focus on one first? If so, which one should I start with?The reason I want to do both at the same time, is that I’m worried other competitors may get there before me – the old “don’t steal my idea” syndrome..:)

Mucho Gracias

Dear Amitaf:

I can tell you from personal experience that you should definitely NOT start two businesses at the same time — even if they are in the same niche.

Get one off the ground first and make it profitable. Then, start the second one. Why? Two reasons:

(1) Money: You don’t want to split your resources. Marketing — of any business — will take up a huge chunk of your startup capital. Most entrepreneurs don’t have enough of this to go around. Don’t split it between two enterprises. Use it to build a solid foundation for one business.

Once that one is successful, it could support the other one — especially as they are in the same niche.

(2) Time: As you probably know, starting a business takes hurculean effort. I’ve owned two business over the last 10 years and I can tell you, it’s exhausting. It takes all of your energy to grow one business to the point where it not only gets past the initial stage, but grows into a self-supporting entity.

Dividing your time between two is like putting in half the effort — even though you will be working twice as hard. Give 100% to one first.

As for other peopel stealing your idea(s), dont worry about that at all. Why? Again, two reasons.

(1) While many many think an idea is great, most are not proactive enough to follow through. As I’m sure you know, a great idea is one thing — doing the work of researching the feasibiliy of an idea, putting together a business plan, and actually doing the work to get the enterprise open is something else altogether.

Many don’t have what it takes to get past the “this is a great idea!” stage.

(2) Passion: The fact that you’re so excited by this idea that you have gotten so far as to contemplate opening not one, but two, businesses around your idea says that you’re passionate about it. This will leave most in the dust right there.

Passion and hard work eliminate most would-be “idea stealers,” so, again, don’t even worry about it.

I hope I’ve given you enough insight to make your decision. Whatever you decide, good luck!
