Don’t fail, learn and move up

After you fail at something you want to do, you start to think that maybe it is not your cup of tea. And there are those made up excuses that always put the blame on someone or something else.

My previous startup failed. But I am not going to do the above. And it’s a great thing my team ain’t doing that either. We are focusing on understanding how can we can make sure that it does not happen again.

So I have decided to follow The Lean Startup methodology this time and I am going to test every hypothesis quickly and then put time, energy and money into it. It was not a blind decision, I have spent 1-week reading/watching case stories and understanding how it works and if it works. I still don’t know if it works :D, but I am pretty convinced that it is a smart way to creating anything or doing anything. I am quite convinced that you can put those principles to use in a lot of scenarios and I am willing to give it my best try. It is not because I have nothing else to try, but I think those principles are a better way to every other way I have followed.

So my first step is testing if there is a need, a problem. We have set up a landing page and of course, a subscribe form and we are constantly understanding users’ interaction with it and we are talking to a lot of people and creating some amazing relationships on the way. We are enjoying a lot and would love to share our journey with you.
