"How many customers are you meeting with?"
It's such a simple question, yet so, so critical to businesses like ours at this stage in the startup process. It doesn't matter at all how great of an idea Bryan and I have. I know that. Our success is dependent on our ability to say "Yes!" to the following three questions:
- Does our product/service actually solve a real problem for our customers?
- Is the problem that we solve significant enough where customers are willing to pay for it?
- Can we execute and see our solution through?
So in week #2, it's absolutely critical we talk to customers and answer those first two questions. I better stop blogging and get to work.
