Have you been ever sitting down drinking a cup of coffee and come up with the next best thing? The world’s greatest invention? Something that everyone can’t live without?
Whether it’s the coolest cooler, the best travel jacket, or exploding kittens, we all have ideas. But what ever happened to the good ole days of believing in yourself and taking your idea to the bank, literally. It’s time we believe in ourselves and take some personal risk on our ideas. Stop kickstarting your ideas and throwing them out on social media for acceptance and reassurance. If you believe you have the best idea, risk it all and fund it yourself.
I’ve found that if it’s your blood, your sweat, your tears, you try a little bit harder to make it work. When did we cash in the hard work for kickstarters and shark tanks?
This kickstart mentality has bleed over into all aspects of our lives. We seek approval and pats on the back from backers we’ve never even met. It’s time to revive face to face conversations and agreeing to deals with a handshake. So the next time you have a good idea, take it to the bank.
