“A jack of all trades is a master of none, but oftentimes better than a master of one.”
Building your business will not come easy.
Unless you are a master of generalism, you’re likely going need help in some form or another and there are multiple avenues of thought when to comes to seeking it out.
Of course, asking for feedback from friends and family is the natural recourse for most of us starting out but whilst it’s comforting to be praised for the hard work you’re putting into the project, there might just be the chance that they are withholding what they really think.
They do this because they don’t want to hurt your feelings or discourage you from pursuing the ambitious goals you set out for yourself.
They’ll most likely do this even if you ask them to be critical.
Whilst they are capable of giving emotional support, they might not necessarily have the expertise you need when it comes to moving forward with your project.
This is why it’s important to seek help elsewhere.
