It is so hard to let go of your baby. whether a mother with her child or a CEO with a business. At some point you need to let go so it can learn to take care of itself some more and ultimately become much stronger without your control.
DO MARKET RESEARCH
It might not be fun or feel like progress. You often risk finding out that you are wrong yourself. Instead of working on your baby as it should be in your mind, you may need to change your precious idea.
Validating your idea properly will save a lot of time and money to you can build the right thing the first time.
PRACTICE PITCHING TO EVERYONE
Talk to as many people about your idea as possible. Every conversation will help you become more clearer in what your mission is and at helping people understand it.
Just because someone doesn’t seem relevant you never know who they might put you in contact with. You should just treat all people as if they have the power to make your dreams come true.
