They call it a Eureka moment, and lots of inventors and entrepreneurs talk about having them.
A good idea is just that—an intangible and amorphous concept that can be explained cheerfully over and over again to a group of your giddy and incorrigible friends, but isn’t putting a dime in your pocket. It’s worth nothing until you do something. The Eureka moment may be the most important minute in the history of your business, but it’s the easiest. The most important part of starting a business is doing the leg work. I need to kick myself in the ass to get started on this, and it’s easier to hold myself to a goal if i make it pubic. So here goes…
- Write a business plan—this is where my first business fell to pieces. If not a formalized business plan, at least a written statement of purpose, plans, etc.
- Find partners – specifically a web developer and maybe a graphic designer
- Get feedback – I need solid feedback from entrepreneurs, web designers about how to execute this idea.
