Trust Your Idea
You want to be an entrepreneur. You want to leave your 9-5; but in order to do that you’re going to need a good reason to leave your former life and job behind. More so than having a brilliant idea, you need to trust in your idea to build a successful company from the ground up.
Good ideas will always come and go, but great ideas need to be paid attention to. You can be flexible with your ideas, but at the core you need to believe in them and yourself.
When you’re thinking about your idea, ask yourself: Does your product or business idea offer a solution to a relevant and recurring problem? Does your idea give you a competitive advantage? Will your idea be inexpensive to execute, but still save customers money?
Other questions for you to consider: Are you still going to have the same amount of passion about your idea a year from now? Are others going be jump on the same bandwagon and be passionate about your idea as well?
I can tell you the riskiest ideas are the trendy ones that in reality follow a previously successful idea by someone else. However, that doesn’t mean you should ignore the trends altogether. Some trends are much broader than you’d think.
Be brave. Trust in yourself and your ideas.
