Here is some good advice when you are ready to name your company. please don't blow your life savings on a branding company or name generator. If you have a few thousand dollars from an angel investor, it's worth considering, but be carfull where, when, and how you spend your branding dollars.
I don't disagree with the six disciplines, but I am not convinced that there shouldn't be more. I'll have to think about this one for a bit. Quick and easy article to read, and it provides a nice top level picture of entrepreneurship.
I like the article, but I can't get past the first piece of advice regarding "stick with one product; one business". I have worked on several different projects within my career, and I have had fun, and have been passionate about all of them in one way or another.
Most of the article I read about entreupreneurship have said the same thing, using different language. "Pick one product you are passionate about, and focus on that one thing." My problem with this statement is that I can become emotionally invested, and passionate about anything I work on.
I'm in the process of launching a new business with a partner, and he asked me a great question before we agreed to work together.
When you think of the end game of this path does it end with:
A strong company built with a multi-year plan for future growth and revenue.Does it end with us sitting on a beach in Tahiti, retired and owners of nothing but our personal finance management tasks in 10 years. Or some combination of the two
The reason I ask is I think these paths take extremely different designs and execution stratagies.
The company requires:
A product/service we are passionate about.A foundation plan for future growth Reinvestment strategies vs. Employee compensation strategiesA lazer tight focus on the industry, competitors and product design
The early retirement requires
Potentially multiple products across a meriad of business sectorsA foundation for capital growthCost per and return on Investment strategies Broader focus on diversified income stream
First, I have to say that I agree with my partner. I believe that running the company scenario compared to the "multipe products/services with diverse income streams" is very different in terms of execution.
In response to his question, I spent a significant amount of time trying to explain and justify the idea of "one product/service with lazer focus". In the end, I deleted what I wrote and said something along the lines of...
I take the beach in Tahiti. It occured to me that I am passionate about building a business strategy and executing that strategy. If that is my passion, why can't I do it several time over?
I'm sure there are several entrepreuneurs out there that are saying, "Stop, don't do it. Stick with one product". For those people, I would love to hear specific examples of why the multi-product/service strategy won't or can't work.
