Hello Blackhatters! Goal: Money Problem: Time (and not enough money) A business project is defined by two variables: a) How long does it take to make a specific amount of money? b) What is the maximum potential of money? x) An affilate website for example is very effective in a, but bad at b. y) A startup like creating a social network is bad at a, but great at b. I) Start with x and then y. II) Do only y. It seems far easier to create something that has only the goal to make 10 USD / day than to decide to make a project, which potential is to make 1000 USD / day constantly. But how many small project iterations are needed to get to the "final" project? Remember that starting and getting into the routine is the most difficult task. You must do this only once with a big project, but at the same time the big project has far greater risk to turn out as a flop. It is against "fail fast". In theory you could start a big project small - you even must do this - but then you must have multiple business models over time. From my own experience having multiple projects is frustrating and some kind of zero sum game. The complexity kills you. Going the "think big" route is the cool way, but it is also the way of a dreamer. Remember: There is almost no middle way. Reality will average you out anyway. What do you think?
