The Startup Therapy Couch: Execution is everything.
"I just had an awesome idea! I bet Google would buy that, it's $100M idea!"
Today I'm doing a little bubble-bursting. Google isn't going to pay you $100M for your idea.
Companies that acquire other companies, and investors who put money into companies, do so on the basis of execution. It's not enough to have a great idea for technology or an app. You have to actually EXECUTE on that idea. You have to create the product or service and ideally get some revenue and sales happening. Until you do, it's just an idea without a champion executer to make it happen.
Be the champion, and execute!
