“…not try to sell products that are sexy–try to go for something unsexy. A joke that I commonly make is “Sell urinal mats.” It’s one of those kinds of things where nobody else wants to sell it, you don’t want to tell your family that you sell the product, but that also means that your competitors don’t want to sell that product either–less competition.”

“…to check whether your name is available. Search for earlier trademarks to find out whether your name is available in the country where you want to sell. For example, if you want to sell under [a certain] name, you should check whether the name or a trademark exists for the product that you want to sell.”
