Having that idea in your head which just won’t seem to go away isn’t enough. Everyone has ideas. It is how you execute this idea that will make you have a successful startup. There are thousands of reasons why you shouldn’t get started! This alone is why you do not see more individuals taking the leap and starting their own companies.
I guess if you are reading this then you have taken that leap so go you! Now the hard works start. Knowing your idea is excellent is a great feeling but convincing others your idea is excellent is even better! Convincing someone to part with some cash for an idea you came up with and executed is even more awesome! This is the stage that everyone wants to get to, after all, cup noodles only taste good for so many days in a row!
You have to start somewhere. Rome wasn’t built in a day and neither was Facebook. Build slowly and learn what is working and what isn’t. Focus on the things that are working and talk about your startup to everyone who will listen. Friends, families, distant acquaintances. The more you talk about the startup, the more valuable feedback you will receive and the more confident you will get. No idea is ever perfect and ways to improve your product may come in the most unlikely of places, that is why starting somewhere is the first valuable step!
