How this helps you
If you look at what you have, you will be surprised how many resources you can already use to start your company. First, there is your time, then your strenghts, next your personal network, third the street where you live. If for example, you want to know whether your biological soap might sell, go to your favorite beauty shop and ask them what they think. This will save you a lot of time, money for a marketing research agency and it’s probably lots of fun to do.
What is it?
Are you more outgoing? Probably you’re a great sales person. Are you more introvert, maybe you are great with numbers. People have different competences and personalities. Knowing what your best qualities and your pitfalls are, helps you find the right people around you. By talking about your ambition as an entrepreneur you will find new connections, ideas and options for your company.
