Project Evaluation for Independent Entrepreneurs at Early Stage

One of the most common conversations I have with people in a social setting is about a business idea they’ve been dancing around with for months and even years.  There is an incredible amount of value to be harnessed and exploited in each and every one of them.

There are, of course, different levels of complexity in terms of business requirements for success, starting with  leadership, traction and momentum. At an early stage an independent entrepreneur is all about energy.  At that, I’ve always tried to assess the importance of harnessing that energy by organizing every resource and effort through a strategic notion of task completion and long term directional perspective.  What I want to succinctly elaborate here, is that this is something in which you can actually get help.

To get started with a project, there are usually two types of motivational voices coming from within and from the people around you.  The conservative voice will recommend you getting started without leaving your actual productive activity and will probably remind you about “the bird in your hand vs the birds in the bush”.  These type of assessment is noble and to be taken always into account, seriously.

Meanwhile, others will encourage risk-taking and adventure, reciting their own epic poem about making it in this world, taking chances, living life to the fullest and how successful people have gotten where they are.  They, too, are noble and necessary voices to be listened to with attention.

This sort of decision making process, defined in the end by risk aversion is the exact same process that goes on in professional settings like corporations and investors.  The difference between the latter two and an independent-to-be entrepreneur is, apart from the availability of resources, how the decision making process is institutionalized and professionalized -some times more efficiently than others-.

Some independent-to-be entrepreneurs are lucky enough to have capable friends and family who can serve them as professional advisers, yet even then a neutral, out-side voice is useful to help the entrepreneur design her or his path to success, and take the first steps to accomplish it.
