Business Plans

These are my three business ideas.

1. My first idea has to do with exercises and gym in general. I love working out and am always looking for a specific program that will help me achieve my fitness goals and to keep me excited. The problem with many fitness apps out nowadays is the scarcity of readily available programs. Also, a lot of new people trying to join the fitness industry struggle to find a program. They usually end up doing random things they think are helpful or look up YouTube videos that can result in either a hit or a miss. Some people end up being overwhelmed and quit fitness all together. I would like to reduce that possibility as much as possible.
I would love for my app to be able to suggest fitness programs depending on the user's fitness level and their ideal places they want to improve. Within the database, there will be many fitness programs to pick from. All you have to do is hit the search bar on what you would like to do. If you want to power-lift, then the app will give out variety of power-lifting programs that are catered to your level. It will be an app that keeps track of your fitness level as well. Updating the search result depending on where you're at.

2. The second idea is a bit out there and somewhat already done by another company (I know, but I'm still somewhat salty about someone else achieving this business when in fact I thought about it years before they became public. So maybe I can improve it in some other way without being sued). Jokes aside, I have always hated the act of mundane eating. Don't get me wrong, I love food, but just not my food that I cook. When the food is good, I enjoy every second of it. But when the food is bad, I wish it to just get into my stomach so that I can get on with my day. So I have thought of a nutrition company that will deliver liquid food that you can gulp down in a matter of seconds so that you can get back to your busy work. This business will be an app based company that keeps track of your nutrition levels. Depending on what your're lacking, the company will send you the drink customized to your needs. Keeping track of each person's nutritional levels are hard but somewhat important. This is because in most cases, some people need more of each nutrition than someone else. It is also not good to overdose in specific nutrients for some people.

3. My third and final business idea would be an website that the users can sell and buy ideas. In someway, what I have in mind is a mix of Kickstarter and LinkedIn. Nowadays, it is hard to be noticed to the world even if you were to have a kick ass idea. Therefore, I want a website that can host users for them to post their business ideas there. Then, the companies that are looking for bright-minded individuals can pick up the users and their ideas.

What I wanna LEARN

I have always been inspired by people driven to accomplish their dreams through the act of entrepreneurship. I'm personally into computer science for the simple opportunity of turning the skill into a business. I've had multiple business ideas throughout my life, but I never knew the steps needed to achieve that dream, let alone getting it started. I always hear people saying, "you just got to do it. If you have a dream then keep working on it until its a reality." I mean sure, I guess? But there are plenty of technical aspects of entrepreneurship that you have to learn somehow. Therefore, since I'm already in college and taking classes and all, I thought it would only do me well if I took this class. I really want this class to help me build a foundation for my business plans. I feel like having a structure to my dream will be beneficial, rather than to just go in blindly into the world of unknown. I am also looking forward to the whole aspect of getting funding from investors. I think that is a bold concept if you don't already have a background in it. There are a lot of things that can be learned from this class. But I think my biggest hope is to gain motivation and insights from the teachings and its guest speakers that are coming to tell their success and failure stories. I would like to surround myself with like-minded individuals that aren't getting a computer science degree just to work the 9 to 5 job at some company. But rather, to use our attained knowledge to start a business, to improve humanity in some way.
