Firstly, here's what DOESN'T work (if you're just starting out):
Quit Your Job, Take the Plunge, Buy A Laptop, a WeWork Membership, and then stare at a blank screen and ask.... What's my startup idea and how do I raise money as I see my savings dwindle.
Here's also what DOESN'T work (and maybe you know this one already but have fallen into the trap like I did): hemming and hawing back and forth between committing to thriving in a corporate job vs. thinking about taking the plunge and going all in on my startup. And then looking at my savings and wondering if it's worth risking it all. And then dwindling into a state of near depression because you're stuck at an unfulfilling (albeit successful) career... and wondering: is this it?
If you've already doubled down on your SaaS business and are struggling to figure out product market fit, and struggling to figure out your GTM strategy, and struggling to figure out growth.... Here's one last thing that DOESN'T WORK (I fell into this trap too): It's easy to fall into the "I'm just ONE more feature away..." and the "If ONLY we build this then they'll buy..." trap. What I learned is it's never that one extra feature, it's about a cohesive growth strategy.
I've been there. And then I (almost accidentally through my limited circumstances) bumped into the RIGHT way. This involved adopting an Unstoppable Mindset (as a Founder) and an Unstoppable Sales Funnel (as a company). And that changed EVERYTHING.
