One of the great things about vetting an idea early is that it eliminates the bias of your enthusiasm and desire to succeed and instead presents reality. As I worked through my latest amazing idea, it quickly became apparent that its chances for success are very low. This is great information to have now instead of 3 months and tons of wasted resources later. I’ve always got new ideas so I simply move on to the next one. Which I’ve done and will be working through the vetting process again.

This is why I didn’t get through chapters 9-11. Once I got to chapter 9 I was able to stop and move on to the next idea.

Also published a post on two reasons why I use the Facebook pixel. Check that out here.
