There's always an opening in the universe for the next big idea, business proposition and vision. I have learnt that the problem is never with the idea but with the execution strategy.
A lot of people have asked me how I started my business. It wasn't simple but when I think about it, I believe I was focused on starting with whatever I had at the time.
When you say you move, it becomes more than the idea of moving but on the actual strategy that you EXECUTE on the go despite the challenges you face daily.
At the end, it all boils back to making decisions and executing fast regardless of any situation or challenge you may find yourself in. If money becomes the reason for you slowing down, come up with alternatives. Money will always be a challenge especially for startups.
You have to learn how experts circumvent it. Know when and how to focus. In the early days of Crib-X Technology, I shut down the noise around me. I basically locked myself in my house and worked excruciating long hours.
I pulled on every strings, made numerous calls, placed bids for projects that I wasn't invited to bid for. Lol .. It was really hard to get someone to sign up but my persistence paid off. At a point, I barely spoke to another human in an average 48hours.
Focus on one thing. Pick a product or a service and sell it like your entire life depends on it. You need just 100 customers to buy your products worth 10,000 to make a million Naira.
You need just 10 clients to buy products worth 50k to make a million Naira.
Focus on finding your 10, 20, 100, 1,000 customers in 2020. Sell that product or service like your life depends on it. Sell!!!
