K.I.S.S. is great advice and I believe in it whole-heartedly. You cover all the salient points for a start-up. I find the biggest problem with people starting a business is that they don’t know what they don’t know. They assume a great deal — usually based on their own personal preferences and experiences. I like to think that someone starting a business would learn to ask, “What do you think?” rather than announcing to the world, “Here’s what I think!”

Hi Gil – I completely agree and you bring up a much better and succinct way of what I was trying to say. Quite often, the biggest hurdle is “not knowing what you don’t know” and to me it seems like the only way to surmount this issue is by socializing the idea with trusted friends and colleagues. As a note, I wasn’t trying to cover the gamut from idea to full business, but rather I was thinking about how to test and refine your idea before pouring your heart and soul in to the business. I’m curious if you have any other techniques or ideas for folks at such an early stage?
