Step 1: Choose Your Topic

This content is for Fizzle members only.

Choosing a topic for your business (or blog, podcast, platform, etc.) is an incredibly important decision.

A great topic can make your life fantastically easy. A poorly chosen topic, however, can make getting your business off the ground impossible.

Your topic is the general area of interest your business will focus on. This is the zoomed-out, 10,000 foot view of your business.

“Fitness,” “interior design,” “bass guitar,” “camping,” “whole foods” and “video games” are all great examples here — not zoomed in so much that you can’t make changes later on, not zoomed out so far that it’s unclear.


Common Challenge: I’m Uncertain!

You may not feel 100% certain about the topic you choose. That’s okay! We all feel uncertain at one point or another in our businesses. So, if you feel uncertain about choosing your topic, welcome to the family; you’re not alone 🙂

Do the best you can (it’s all you can do) and don’t let this process drag on. Our roadmap will make it easy for you to make adjustments to your idea later on. For now just do your best, make a decision and let’s move on.


The Topic Course

We’ve built an entire course to help you choose your topic. We’ve got worksheets and lists for you to work on, and we’ve even got a decision matrix to give you. It’s going to be fun, and at the end of it you’ll be confident in your topic decision.

Some people finish the course in a day or two, while others take a couple weeks. The beauty of our courses is you can complete them at your own pace.

When you’re done with the course, you can come right back here and mark this step as complete. (You can always get back to your current Roadmap stage from the Dashboard.) Pour yourself a cup of coffee or tea and let’s start the course now!
