To Start A Business

To start a business, you need three things:

  1. A product or service,
  2. A group of people willing to pay for it, and
  3. A way to get paid. Everything else is completely optional.

Ask three questions for every idea:

  1. How would I get paid with this idea?
  2. How much would I get paid from this idea?
  3. Is there a way I could get paid more than once?
