Just for Validation

“Don’t solicit feedback on
your product, idea or your business
just for validation purposes.
You want to tell the people
who can help move your idea forward,
but if you’re just looking
to your friend, co-worker, husband or wife
for validation, be careful.
It can stop a lot of multi-million-dollar ideas
in their tracks in the beginning.”
~ Sara Blakely,
Founder of Spanx
