I’ve just had lunch with a guy who recently set up a telephone directory enquiries business about 3 years ago, and is starting to feel like things in his business are on autopilot.
Nice place to be in I think ;-)
Anyways, we were chatting about what it takes to get something off the ground, and the general consensus is that it takes a lot more than you originally think it will, and it severely impacts every other area of your life. This isn’t new to me, and I’m sure neither to you.
What I’m interested in is your thoughts on the effort required to get something from an A4 piece of paper with scribbles on it, to a working Beta version that you can start charging people for… I know a few people that are in this phase now, and all of them have a different point of view, so it would be good to hear what you guys think, or what experiences you can relate to?
