first of all i had an idea that i could help people or provide them with a service that they might want.
I am passionate about it and want to commit several years of time to it.
So i tell some friends and they like the idea and give some additional ideas
I identify some businesses models that are successful and in the same area as my idea
I decide to form an advisory group
I start to brainstorm a brand and some brand values .
What other things should i be doing to support the start up process ?
and What is the best order of that start up process?
What resources should i seek to gather together ?
