Key Points

  • The problem you're solving with your startup should be crystal clear in your own mind; if it's not, it's worth reevaluating if it's the right venture to pursue.
  • Being too early to market with an innovative product can be a disadvantage, so it's crucial to validate the market demand and timing before fully committing resources.
  • Listening to your fears and treating them as feedback can lead to growth and learning, helping you become more resilient and adaptive as an entrepreneur.
