I have to agree here; get the UI/UX as early as possible; tweak it along
the way.

Having worked with several founders on the process of converting their idea into a real product with customers, I found that it\'s vital to do extensive UX work early. As you create wireframes, etc., you\'ll discover and resolve kinks and problems with your ideas, and the sooner you can do that, the better off you\'ll be. You\'ll save confusion when talking to potential customers, you\'ll save money/time on building the product, and you\'ll greatly improve your chances of being happy with the results of your efforts and of those who are helping you bring your idea to reality. Good luck!
