Millions from Idea Sex

How to make millions with idea sex is a great article by entrepreneur James Altucher.  He suggests that groundbreaking ideas are rare, but big money is possible from combining two or more existing ideas.

The article cites Sam Weston – the inventor of G.I. Joe – as an example. Weston took a soldier doll, gave it a gun, and sold it to Hasbro for $100,000.  Hasbro has made over a billion dollars from G.I Joe and related.

You can do this too.  Pick two ideas that improve people’s lives and make millions in the process.

Start a list of things that make people happy or lives better.  Combine two or three and sell it to a big company that can mass produce it.
