When you’re working on an entrepreneurial project, whatever it is requires time and effort. It also requires a special kind of emotional energy — a long-term vision that can sustain you through ups and downs. While pursuing our book idea might take more time and work, it will undoubtedly be time better spent, and work that’s more worthwhile.
The main reason for getting your idea (and yourself) out into the world early and often is to see how you yourself feel about it. Is it worth your time and is it truly of interest? So many ideas are great in theory but fall flat in practice. That you are getting market validation is really just a byproduct of this.
