“The enthusiasm you have for a new idea is not an accurate indicator of its true worth.” – p. 159, Rework, by: Jason Fried & David Heinemeier Hansson
As your business starts gaining momentum, you’ll end up with dozens of customers (or more!) — and dozens of opinions. While customers and potential customers are great sources of new ideas early on, remember that your business cannot be all things to all people.
When you start your business, you may try on some of these new ideas, but over time, focus on reworking what makes you successful by refining it until it’s the best, most efficient, and profitable service for you and your target customer.
Takeaway: Remember everyone’s got an opinion. When in doubt, keep in mind your philosophy and seek the advice of your patron.
