Build the product only you can build!

Harry Dry @harrydry

There's thousands of amazing startup stories out there. And the trick is to ignore 95% of them.

I often get inspired by founders growing E-Commerce stores and want to give it a go myself. But what I'm forgetting is that I wasn't put on this Earth to do that. The founders who make it work, have a unique set of advantages stacked in their favour from the word go (which I don't have)

Maybe they had a background growing Instagram pages, maybe they knew someone who could print cheap t-shirts, maybe their sister was a graphic designer ... It's not the funny t-shirt store which worked. It's that they had the unique set of qualities to make it work.

You have a unique set of qualities, a unique network, a unique personality. Build the product only you can build.

    Inspiring, dude. This could bring some clarity to most of us who are lost in a sea of ideas not knowing which one to strive for.

      My advice: just pick one and run with it. It’s all about execution. Sure, you’ll make mistakes along the way, but I firmly believe that success comes with hard work and determination.

      The idea is only really a small part of the journey, it’s what you do with the idea that counts.

        Quite a lot of them actually, and a few were sparked by other startups already doing it somewhere else.

    Really great! Everyone has a purpose. Do that which is unique to you and execute!
