Do not underestimate the need to have a strong support network. Just like a husband should provide strong support to the spouse, you also need equally strong support. One can see the importance of strong support networks to combat alcoholism and in the weight loss industry as well. The force of many is stronger than one. It’s just vital that you make sure you get your opinions from all sides, understand who may be telling the facts as real as possible and who may be just telling you what you want to hear. You should also practice pitching your idea to various groups using different techniques. Cater the important elements of your plan to the specific audience. The practice will help you gain confidence when the time comes to actually try soliciting customers for real or seeking start-up investment funds. Also by tailoring to the specific audiences, you will gain a stronger understanding of your plan as you learn to evaluate your plan from different sides. It’s absolutely normal for people to think their plan is absolutely perfect, but in an unpredictable universe, it’s smart strategy to cover all your bases and really take advantage of feedback data from all areas.
