When you start up, there’s going to be a LOT of stuff you won’t know. Trust me on this, I’ve been down the startup road a few times over the course of the last 15 years and I’m STILL learning
Everyone (including me) thinks they are smart & many are, but there are gaps in everyone’s knowledge.
Often, best source of the help you need will be someone you don’t know. Frequently, that person will also be someone who you might think unapproachable. Some people have no qualms about approaching people for help. I (and potentially you), struggle with this, particularly when I can’t see a way that I can create value in return.
KILL that thought.
To get to success, you’re going to have to go outside your comfort zone early and often.
There are two back stories to this post, I’ll reveal them both in the next 72 hours or so, in the meantime think about the help (whatever form it would come in) that you think you most need to get (either to start, or to get past the next hurdle), and who you might ask for it. I’ll provide some thoughts on how to cross that barrier shortly.
