Being an entrepreneur is daunting enough and thank god most startup communities are super nice and supportive, yet sometimes I wish somebody had slapped me in the face before I quit my job and spent my life savings into developing a groundbreaking social network for pets. IMO, not all ideas are created equal, and the best way to validate an idea is to talk to others about it, which can be difficult and costly. Also, entrepreneurs have a tendency to get stuck in “idea lock,” when they are hellbent that their idea is a winner, regardless of what others say. At this stage, what you want is brutally honest feedback. If you are the only person who truly thinks the idea is good, then maybe it is time to reassess. So before making your in-laws sign the NDA, head over to https://roastmyidea.com for a reality check.
