3. Let the idea grow and take shape
4. Figure out what the business is behind the idea
Your takeaway assignment based on today's question is to create a two-page summary of your idea that you can share with friends and family. Include the following: what is the idea, why is it a business, who is your target demographic, what are the pain points that it is solving, how is it going to make money, how long is it going to take to create a prototype, how long until it gets to market. Share this document and get feedback. Then write it down again and again until you have melted it to it's essence.
