        If you want your business to succeed you find a market that is undeserved and your create the business to serve it.  What you want is not important to the market. This is why so many business ventures fail.

          What you want IS important.  You can't be successful if you aren't interested in your own product or service.  Anyway, this was a hypothetical question focused on people's interests.
