OK… You have an idea for a business. Now what? What’s stopping you from moving forward? In this podcast, Howard Sherman from Crowdfund Buzz explains exactly why execution of that idea is so important if you want success (in crowdfunding and just about every other aspect of life) and provides tips, pointers, and advice on how to defeat the element of fear that holds so many aspiring entrepreneurs back.
Your deal is a secret until people know about it. Likewise, you can’t get anywhere in life if you don’t execute on your ideas and plans. It’s the only way forward to get to where you want to be, regardless of where you’re at now. And if you want success, playing it safe may not be your best strategy. As Mr. Sherman mentions on the podcast, a very high percentage of crowdfunding campaigns fail to real their goals. Why is that? Well, there’s a variety of reasons, but Howard makes a strong case that the number one reason might be the failure to execute or perhaps the failure to execute properly!
Fear, risk, bad advice, and so many other factors contribute to this problem. Remember: Investors can’t buy stock in your company if they don’t know you exist and it’s up to YOU to make that happen. It is vitally important to develop braintrusts and strategy partners to create outside-the-box type solutions. Learn the steps involved that Mr. Sherman suggests will put you in the spotlight and get his advice on how to focus less on fear, and more on winning! Don’t be the one who says “what if?” Instead, turn your idea into a successful business, career, and life. This podcast will help.
