Questions

Is it a good way to start learning about entrepreneurship and how to start your own business? Or is it better to just start?

Hi.

This is the age old question, almost like a, "Chicken and Egg" situation.

What exactly is a "business development" program per *your* definition?

When I start mentoring people with new ideas to start a business, I tell them that if they still have a day job -- keep it!

Life on your own -- without a "safety net" can be a different way to go (and I don't recommend it).

Talk to other entrepreneurs in your space. Look for someone to possibly mentor you.

Read. And keep reading.

One of the "old" books I love to start conversations with people I mentor is from Michael Gerber -- "The E-Myth" which talks about the different personas we must play (as ONE person) -- the technician, the manager, and the entrepreneur.

Take a look at the concept of "The Lean Startup and learning about failing fast. Getting customer number one.

That's my beginning recommendation. Let's see what others here tell you.

If you'd like to have a conversation, please let me know.

Focus. #deliver

Thank you.
