The best idea is the one everyone knows about but only you can execute and turn into a business.

Have you ever seen something on TV and said to yourself, I had that idea years ago? Well, you weren't the only one with the idea, someone else took the action needed to make it real.

You have to share your ideas in order to gain any traction. You may need to keep some of the details a secret forever.

The best business idea I can offer you, Lee, is to --

1. Decide what you like and are capable of doing - your qualifications, skills, etc. and get a job doing that.
2. Learn the business - learn everything you can about the business and the industry.
3. Look for problems or difficulties - anything not being done well - and figure out how you could do those things better.

That will be your idea and the basis for a successful business.

The point being, you can't just come up with an idea and hope to be successful. You have to know what you are doing and how to do it. You learn that by getting into the business and learn about it.

It takes longer than jumping into a business and hoping things work out, but it is more satisfying and more likely to be a success.

I wish you well.

Inevitably, the management of a company is related to the idea and details that you bring to the table as a co-founder. So if you want to see your idea through you will still need to provide at least some leadership.
If you don't want to manage the company, depending on your specific knowledge, you can fulfill other roles, like creative director, technical lead, etc.
If you have sufficient capital and you want to get a VC interested, try to convince a very bright and driven individual, hopefully someone who has been your friend or acquaintance for a long time, someone with whom you have no problem being 100% honest, and attempt to implement the smallest functional subset of your idea.
Then, try to do a soft launch and see how much traction you get.
Traction (growth of userbase) is one of the major things investors usually want to see to indicate the quality of the product, founders, and company. It's not necessarily hard but it requires substantive work from each of the founders.This information may be useful http://www.whereorg.com/startup-metals-11292041

1.Decide the type of business you are to be ventured.
2.Gain knowledge on it and keep engaged with that platform.
3. Set short and long term goals.
4. look after the trends.

Good luck

Follow the successful entrepreneurs and re-invent their ideas for your new venture.

Everyone always has new ideas but all the ideas are just an improvisation of every other thing in the market. Just like the marketplace, social networking or a native app idea.

The trend of latest business relies on the mobile apps. Like the uber concept, you can start your own native app. The idea is the first step for any business. I just gave a head start.

My best idea might not be the best idea that you'd be good at.

If you can, spend some time responding to this thread you've started and tell us more about your interests and your budget. Otherwise, the advice we offer wouldn't be as targeted as you hope it would be.

Post Business Plan

Try writing a basic business plan for your start-up. A business plan serves as a guide to the different aspects of a business that you need to know. If you know how to execute these aspects (marketing, operations, organization, and finance) while taking into consideration all the external factors ( competition, business environment) that's usually a good indicator that your business is feasible.

For a startup business, it will be great if you have a website representing your brand for greater reach to your target users.
