You don’t go around trying to make new music from scratch.
Then why do you look for NEW ideas when it comes to entrepreneurship?

My friend Manish shared a great quote from Mark Twain -
“There is no such thing as a new idea. It is impossible. We simply take a lot of old ideas and put them into a sort of mental kaleidoscope. We give them a turn and they make new and
curious combinations. We keep on turning and making new combinations
indefinitely; but they are the same old pieces of colored glass that
have been in use through all the ages.”
