Sometimes, finding a business idea is the hardest part of becoming an entrepreneur.
So when you finally find one, you get excited. And sometimes, an idea is what inspired you to start a business in the first place.
But the thing is, even the best and most innovative idea isn't enough on its own.
Tons of people have ideas.
Few people actualize those ideas and really create something out of them.
There's a tendency for beginning solopreneurs to get pretty protective when it comes to their exact product, service, or niche.
But honestly, ideas don't mean a whole lot. You don't really have to worry about someone else stealing your “big idea.”
You also don't need to stress over making sure your idea is “perfect.”
This can keep you stuck in a research phase, and stop you from actually starting.
What really matters is action.
Ideas exist as mental concepts. They exist in your mind, and when you share them and discuss them, they exist in the minds of other people, too.
But they're not tangible.
To bring them into reality, you need strategy, hard work, and a lot of dedication.
In a video from Entrepreneur, contributor Kate Volman explains how just “having an idea” isn't nearly as important as people often think it is.
