My friend Josh recently asked me about what his next steps in business should be now that his product is complete.
He wanted to know if he should focus on marketing or perhaps start to raise capital. Now that his product development is complete.
one of the things I suggest that he focus on was using the one page business plan method to help research his industry and customers and flush out his business goals.
If he doesn’t need to raise capital he should be focusing on trying to build a company following and to develop his customer funnel.

Building an online following is one of the more challenging tasks most people will undertake when they start their journey into entrepreneurship.
I am sure by now all of you guys have heard about or seen footage from the united airlines overbooking incident where there was a man dragged off flight from Chicago to Louisville. We now know his name is Dr. David Dao. To give a quick recap, basically United overbooked a flight from Chicago to Louisville and they needed to put 4 crew members on that full flight so they could work another flight at the destinations. They offered the passengers to voluntarily be bumped and offered them as much as $800 to do so.
