Minitrends are trends that are already emerging, and that promise to become significantly important within the next two to five years, but which are not widely recognized or appreciated.

Minitrends demonstrates:

  • How and where to search for Minitrends
  • How to evaluate the business attractiveness of a Minitrend
  • How to develop an effective mini trend exploitation scheme
  • How to turn the scheme into a profitable business opportunity

The book also presents analyses of nine attractive Minitrends in terms of background, current trends, and business opportunities.

Launching into a Minitrend Adventure allows you to utilize and express your imagination, perceptiveness, originality, logic, innovative nature, and basic good sense. It provides you a way to distinguish yourself from competitors and colleagues and assists you in “living your bliss.”
