We all have an idea of what we want to be when we grow up. You find that perfect intersection of something that you love and are just good enough at it, and you start to get excited. The excitement is overwhelming, but you slowly start to think…
Am I really good enough?
Should I do this?
At this tipping point, we either dig in and go for it, or we chalk it up to another silly idea. What usually separates those two is someone standing shoulder to shoulder with you, encouraging and helping guide you through life, family, and business. There are so many distractions, so many things that feel like they are priority #1, and when everything is a priority, nothing is.
Whether you are just starting out or your company has been around for a while and looking to take things to the next level, I’ve been there. For the last 8 years, I’ve been running a digital consultancy and custom software shop. We’ve had some great success, as well as some pretty low points. We’ve started a few products, some worked, some failed.
In all this time I’ve come to believe that you need a plan and someone to help encourage you when you hit those low points, help you find the why. Having a plan doesn’t guarantee success, however, if you don’t have a north star that you are going after, how do you know when you’ve won? If you are anything like me you’ll lose interest and give up, even with a strong why.
That drive is why I’m starting this blog, to help those that are in the process of starting or working on building something. Hopefully, I can be someone to help drive you forward and ask questions of when you aren’t sure.
