Fall is a great time to start something new.
Kids are back at school, the oppressive heat of summer has subsided, and there is a general air of "it's time to hunker down and get to work."
For us entrepreneurial types, it also happens to be a great time to launch a new program or service. Maybe you're ready to start a blog series or a podcast. Or perhaps you want to try offering a new eCourse or coaching package.
Before you launch full speed ahead, why not share your idea with a few respected individuals?
They can be family, colleagues, or friends who are capable of thinking big.
Set up a Skype date, meet together for coffee, or even throw a small focus group party.
Sometimes when you're about to release your project out into the wild, you might feel the urge to keep it a secret. But talking it out with a few people can really help you work out a few kinks before you release it to the world.
Ask if they would be willing to give you feedback at the beginning, middle, and end of your launch.
At the end of the day, you still get to call the shots. The opinions of others is something you can take in stride. Yes, there will be things you won't agree with BUT more often than not, the act of explaining your project to someone will help you identify what's missing.
So round up a few of your favorites and tell them all about your next big thing.
Ready. Set. Go!
