Uncategorized Mar 18, 2024

So much of business is about ideas, but what the heck do you even do when you get a great idea? In this episode, not only do we answer this question, but we break down how to determine if your idea is a good or a bad one, the ways to test ideas, what to do when it isn’t working for you and how to know when it’s time to give up on an idea. These are things that I’ve gotten really good at over the years I’ve been in business, and we want to share it all with you here today!
