Many entrepreneurs “don’t give [their startup] enough time to nurture one idea…before they branch out to try new things. They want to think about the next thing because [the first idea] didn’t become an overnight success.”
This comment on focus from Akeem Shannon the founder of Flipstik came to mind this week after speaking with a handful of entrepreneurs that were attempting to solve several problems at once. Yes, pivots and experimentation are part of the game but the idea is to identify the main problem to be solved, and then have a sharp focus on solving for it.
