A Sampling of Our Work
Ideas Last is a concept I developed after years of being entrenched in the start up world. I not only founded my own company, but I have also made friends with countless entrepreneurs at various stages of their start up journey.
I discovered a few recurring themes and common roadblocks, mainly related to a mindset that is unwilling to adapt.
Your original idea should only be the spark that gets you started. Execution involves a roadmap that is constantly evolving. Your ultimate goal is to create a product that lives in the golden intersection between your playground and your original spark.
Please feel free to give a listen or read to better navigate the journey.
