The first step in starting a new project is always the hardest – especially when your old friend resistance kicks in! Your own brand of resistance can take any number of forms:
Are you freaked out about being too much like your competition?
Do you spend more time procrastinating than actually building your product?
Are you nervous that you’re too late to the game?
