The Difference Between Validating Your Idea and Not, with Mark Asquith
As entrepreneurs, we will always have those inspiring "eureka" moments that make us want to dive in and take action immediately. However, before getting started with your business plan and setting up that landing page, there is one crucial step you need to take.
Validating your idea is necessary to making sure you have the right solution for the right audience. In this episode, I sit down with Youpreneur member and podcast host of Excellence Expected, Mark Asquith as he walks us through his entrepreneurial journey so far, how he validated his own ideas and why it's important not just at the beginning of the business but as it continues to grow.
We also talk about mastering the art of the customer conversation, asking the right questions and why podcasting takes more than just turning your mic on.
Validation does take a little work to do the research and really deliberate, but you'll find it worth your while to ensure that you don't end up wasting your time, effort and resources on something that might not be worth it! This was a great chat with Mark, so sit back, get comfortable and dive in.
