No Excuses, it’s never been easier.

My Excuses

Have you been thinking about a business idea? Most of us have and we always make up excuses as to why we haven’t started. I know from my own experience that it is often far harder than expected to make your idea work. Once you have an established idea you need to spend time pushing hard to make it a success.

The MVP

Building a minimum viable product is the part many people think needs money; it’s minimum for a reason! It should be your core idea boiled down to its essence just to see if it will work out. You can then play around with things until you make it a success.

The Tools

Tooling today has gotten a lot easier, pick the simplest that will let you test your idea. Carrd.co is excellent, it creates a bootstrap based website using a simple grid platform and allows you to get started quickly using just your smartphone.
