I wanted to follow up my post with actual methods, hacks and process that enables anyone to build a culture of design thinking and rapid prototyping to build great products and services, that is way great startups or companies are built http://startupiceland.com/2014/09/07/advice-is-cheap/
  • posted When you are trying to figure out your Product to Market fit, focus on rapid prototyping don't waste time on figuring out the supply chain and talking about distribution channels etc. Time is the most valuable resource you have as an entrepreneur.
