But I attended a little trade show this weekend with a few samples, and I'll be following up with some people who could refer customers to me. And a Google ads buy should be extremely effective.
I met some people who were talking about business ideas of their own, and the question is, can you shoestring that business, can you pull the plug at any point will you recover most of your investment? And above all are you going to be vulnerable to people that are going to try to cut your throat and take over (even if the attempt would obviously be doomed people will try anyway). Too often, they have an idea and a rather large goal that would require a lot of resources an investments from people who will cut their throats. Too often the goal is to make the first billion, not to get to the breakeven point.
Too many people are thinking in terms of starting a business based on a novel internet service. Is the goal to start a business or to sell software? My approach is to make something useful, sell it, and make money.
Anyway, that's all I'm going to say about it.....
That's the best way to go about it.
There's no such thing as get rich quick. But you can get rich slow, just take your time and do it right.
