Daymond John, the founder of Fubu and one of the venture capitalist recently had a post on the importance of making a sale and actually focusing on testing the market and proving there is value in the market.
“One of the biggest mistakes I see entrepreneurs making these days is spending too much time trying to perfect their product, or raise more capital for it, without ever testing it on the market. The only way for you to know if your product is truly sound is to get up, get out there and make a sale….No matter how you do it, this step is absolutely crucial. Stop planning, stop pitching, and go out there and SELL!”
