Can any idea make money with good execution?

Katharina's Answer
No. If revenue is higher than costs, there is a business that "makes money". Simple as that. Now, a good idea, timing, and execution are by themselves necessary but not sufficient requirements to the success of a business. Execution is much harder than having a good idea at the right time. The success of a business highly correlates with the quality (and quantity) of execution and the ability of leaders to attract and motivate great people, much less with the quality of an idea.
