We are just starting out on an idea, with no product to show yet.
The more we get into this, the more I get the feeling that
a) This is a really good idea
b) Nobody else seems to be doing it, in the way we envision
c) Lots of people are feeling around this idea, but not quite hitting on the "right" idea
d) Someone, somewhere will eventually form the idea just like we have, and go for it.
(Of course, we could be completely wrong, and this is not a good idea!... but thats not why I'm here...)
Competition is fine - there willalway be competition. However, this makes me anxious, primarily because we really want to Bootstrap this. If someone had this idea, and got big funding, they would probably just blow us away. This makes me feel like we should pursue funding, which in turn makes me feel like we're being weak / not sticking to our guns.
So.. for my questions...
Have any Indiehackers out there experienced this feeling?
What did you do?
Whatever your decision, how did it turn out?
I appreciate that every situation is different - and that there is no answer.... just want to know some of your thoughts.
