I encounter entrepreneurs pretty much every day, and almost all of them are protective of their ideas.
Unfortunately, this is the very first barrier they must overcome on their entrepreneurial journey.
The first and most important reason is that you can’t communicate your idea, what you need, and anything of value or use if you are holding your cards to yourself.
The second thing you need to understand is that your idea is worth $ZERO. I mean that! You are not the only person in the world with that idea. You are not the only person in the world doing something about it. And, in the end an idea is useless if you do nothing with it.
The third thing you must realise is that I DON’T CARE about your idea. I have a million ideas myself – all of them better for me than your idea. I am working on my own idea(s) right now, to this day, all day, every day. I don’t have time to think about your idea. I don’t have time to pursue your dream. I have time only for myself.
But, I want to help you! I want to see you pursue your idea. I want to see you succeed. I want to remove barriers for you. I want to make the journey easier for you.
Every seasoned entrepreneur I have ever known understands these points. They empathise with you and they feel the same way I do about helping you. Think about all the knowledge, experience, skills and perspectives you will never hear from these great people if you keep your idea to yourself.
There is a lot to gain from sharing your idea and your story with other entrepreneurs. They can add value. They can add perspective. They can add meaning. They can make your idea more mature. They can teach you everything you will ever need to take your idea to the world.
But, the question remains…Will you share your idea with us?
How can I help you succeed?
