    I have come to the realisation that working on startups for the rest of my life would make me happy, above other things. I have two brothers who also own startups, one as a serial entrepreneur who is very successful. I think naturally that mindset has been passed onto me, but because I am female and young, I have only recently found the courage to openly admit to people this is what I want to do. I have been working on generating and validating or invalidating ideas for a while now, and I work at a startup too, which helps. The problem I’m facing (and I’m sure lots of others do too), is that I want to spend time vetting an idea properly AND I want to be really excited about it and love it. In most cases, it has seemed like successful startups have come from a founder’s undying passion to pursue a particular problem, possibly this is just great story telling but hey. So do you think it should matter if I ‘quite like’ an idea and think it would definitely work if executed correctly, is that the idea I should pursue? Or should I keep brainstorming until something much much stronger, something that I am super passionate about comes along? I don’t want to fall victim to ‘waiting for something perfect’, I am itching to just start working. So far I have conducted customer research to a few promising ideas, but struggle to get past that point. I also have this stupid thing in my head that says I shouldn’t be able to stop thinking about THE idea, but if a few days go by and I haven’t thought of it.. I’ll usually conclude it can’t be the best idea or worth pursuing. Would love for your opinions or any advice! I have also asked my brother this, but am waiting his reply. – by hq overview mambono5555 – –
