After working as a consultant for the past 4 years, I have finally taken the jump into starting my own business. I mean, real business, not just consulting.
Once the idea was clear, I looked for a partner. That was the best decision, because it brought clarity and focus to my idea. He kept pestering me about proving the business model before committing too much time and money to it.
On one hand I think with more money, we’ll have much bigger impact. On the other hand, I can see the wisdom of starting with a bare bones business model, until it is clear that the market accepts (and craves for) our services.
So I am listening to my own advice in Market Driven Inventions. I’ll continue sharing as we progress.
