THIS SHOULD BE MANDATORY READING TO EVERY SINGLE PERSON COMING OUT OF HIGH SCHOOL OR COLLEGE.
I’ve just personally concluded a very frustrating 18 months with a startup that I was helping to build in my vertical(workplace environments). The co founder pivoted more times than a freestyle dance routine.
We agreed at the beginning of the year what the MVP was going to be, what was exactly going to be built out, and to start running it. Again, pivot after pivot along with unending feature sets being added in and its still not done. At the beginning of July I had to walk away just plain tired of fighting the battle.
Currently, I’m taking the to most important pain points that we had and building it out into a new project. It will be functional and it will do what we need it to. The chatbots and all the secondary stuff will wait and we’ll be live by 9/1
Starting with a really stripped down model saves you a ton of time and money since you learn from your clients and give them exactly what they want.
If you really want to understand this process — -freelance for a year or two before trying to startup a new venture. You will learn what is important and what is not since your personal income rides on it. Now take that experience with you and start building out.
Stop second guessing. stop redoing. go live and get feedback as quickly as you can.
