Validate Your Idea
Plan & Develop Your MVP
Launch Your Business
The most important thing to make your dream a reality is to believe you can do it.
Then commit to do it.
Then persevere. Just keep doing it until you are successful.
The best advice for what business idea to pursue is self reflection.
Your professional background, skills, and interests should be the primary driver for this important decision.
During this step we define your customer avatar and learn where people like that can be found.
This is the part everyone wants to skip, and it's the biggest factor that determines if your business will be among the 90% of startups that fail.
Make sure you are building something people want to buy.
Here's where the real fun begins. Designing the user flows and screens in your app.
This allows us to get user feedback early, and know exactly what to build.
Your MVP is the minimal version of your app that you can take to market and provide value for your users.
Plan to add more features after you launch and get feedback.
You did it! Your app is live and you're on-boarding users as fast as you can.
Pay attention to usage and metrics. Talk to your users.
You've been at the helm of your software business for a while and have most things under control.
Stay close to your users, plan your feature roadmap and develop what your customers ask for.

Many years ago, when large, cumbersome technologies and frameworks were popular, Tony was an advocate lighter, easier to use and maintain technologies.
