The days of recurring and simple revenue are behind us. The production of simple goods, an oversaturated day dream. Some might call it the “American Dream”, though I’m inclined to call it pre-owned revenue.
There’s nothing groundbreaking within the model of pre-owned revenue. The ideas aren’t unique, the patents are stable and idle. What you need now is something disruptive and pave-the-unwalken-road-worthy. Look at the Ubers, the Zenefits of the world. What does ride share and insurance have in common? The answer is easy, they have disruptive revenue, unshackled from the pre-made solutions of a time past.
