Ladies and Gentlemen, the first few Business Tips for Creatives podcasts are in the can! This morning I’ll be researching the best way to get this to you all and by late this afternoon launch:
Business Tips for Creatives Episode 1: Newbs!
Recording (and re-recording) these first episodes reminds me of the Minimum Viable Product (MVP) lesson.
Eric Ries mentions that the MVP “is a version of a new product which allows a team to collect maximum amount of validating learning about customers with the least effort.”
In short GET YOUR PRODUCT OUT THERE! I failed at this miserably. Like so many artist, we want to nit-pick every detail before sharing it with the world. This is not healthy and because you are a better artist than I am, it’s robbing the rest of the world from experiencing your creativity!
One more quote and then I’m going to get to work practicing what I preach:
If you are not embarrassed by the first version of your product, you’ve launched too late. – Reid Hoffman, founder of LINKEDIN
So… time to be embarrassed! Sign up to get the heads up at launch!
