One of the most frequently asked questions for successful entrepreneurs.

Did you know from the beginning that the item (idea) would succeed?

I really want to ask if there are any entrepreneurs starting out knowing that ideas will succeed from the beginning. If the business has a well-established idea that has been proven abroad and a way to succeed, the business and the customer can be seen as failing from the beginning to start-ups that challenge uncertain business.


The idea of ​​a successful entrepreneur’s founding idea is surprisingly simple. “Jimmy Wales” created a Wikipedia that currently provides over 200,000 knowledge in 260 languages ​​through the idea of ​​donating without paying for a fee and providing it for free and without advertising.

Like Wikipedia’s “Wales,” he listens to his/her discomfort, the inconvenience of the next person or co-worker, and listens to the pain points of those who occur in or around the entrepreneur, such as listening to the needs of the corresponding customer. If you ponder how to solve it, people’s reactions can be surprisingly hot.

It is difficult to compete with ideas that are out of your interest. If you can’t figure out the source and abolishment of the idea yourself, failure is obvious at the start. Where would you have only one idea similar to your own? Isn’t someone already thinking about how to look at, improve, and supplement their experiences and opinions?

If you want to differentiate yourself from other ideas, you’re likely to start off a different path from the start, at least if you’re interested and can solve the discomfort, improvement, and unusual problem solving. I don’t want you to forget to start off at a higher level of advantage than solving a problem you don’t know about.

If you are thinking about “start-up” now, think first about how much I know about the business I want to start and what you can do differently. Don’t start a business if you don’t have a way of thinking.

In business, there is no way to go beyond saying that you do not know like a school exam. Schools have time to revisit problems they don’t know, understand problems, and find solutions, but there’s no time in business. Holding and solving unknown problems is a huge opportunity loss in business. If anybody knows, it is business that is difficult, difficult, and difficult to start with. However, I would like to emphasize that in a business that involves time and money, not starting from scratch is a better decision than starting and regretting.
