1) Get feedback.
This may seem like a no-brainer, but getting feedback from your trusted coach and mentors will help.
2) Ask yourself, Is there a need for your idea right now?
Do some light market research. Poll you colleagues or peers in Facebook groups. Ask those at your next networking meeting for opinions. Google it and see what you find out.
3) Be honest with yourself when receiving feedback and doing your market research. You may still have a great idea, but the timing just might be off.
Make sure to take good notes and journal everything. So if the timing isn’t quite right now, when it is you are easy to roll!
