That is how I felt 5 years ago. But since then I've dedicated my career to learning how. It turns out you CAN follow a specific process, and in this course I will teach you what I have taught hundreds of entrepreneurs worldwide.
I will take the best of what I've written, what others have written - and what I've learned from private conversations with the people like Steve Blank and Eric Ries - and organize it into a step-by-step course.
It isn't you - this is very common and I've helped hundreds of entrepreneurs get back on track. It turns out the real world does not work like the textbook examples.
Yep. This has happened to me too. It is especially common with technical founders like me. Unfortunately...we can't code our way out of the problem. But there ARE things you CAN do. Trust me, I can help you.
Wouldn't it be great if customers just told us what they want? Alas, it doesn't happen. But in this course you will learn the right questions to ask potential customers that instantly tell you if your startup will fail.
I will try to make you feel better about the challenges you are facing. What you will never get from me is judgement or preaching - entrepreneurship is really, really hard and I have struggled for many years. I help hundreds of entrepreneurs a year with these challenges and I have worked with the best minds in the world.
Believe in yourself - Everyone I've ever met who has been successful has been going through what you're experiencing.
Thank you so much Kevin for the sounding board, connection, validation, generosity and humor. By ANY definition, Kevin is an amazing coach. I felt an instant warmth, I learned a lot, and it just plain felt good to have someone to hear me out. You can't help but walk away from the exchange a better entrepreneur.
Kevin made sure that we were on the right track with our Customer Development. It was invaluable (and really comforting) to have someone with so much experience verify that our heads were in the right place, and that we're doing things properly.
Kevin, you were incredibly helpful. It can be difficult to find a good, unbiased and nonjudgemental resource as an entrepreneur, so I truly appreciated the experience. I would highly suggest other entrepreneurs contact you.
You changed startups forever with your simple but brilliant observation about what causes real risks. Had it not been for your ideas about Customer Development I would have quit startups forever. Thank you, again, my friend.
