Realizing the Unthinkable…Just how big is that business idea?

You have been dreaming and hoping this business idea you have been conjuring up for the past 6 months, year or even 10 years will offer something unique, unprecedented or even innovative to your specific market. You start putting together a vague business plan, begin networking with those that are influential in your market and continue to plug-away creating this business. Never once do you stop to realize how big this idea may actually be. No, you continue believing you are in phase I of business development and you have yet to even prove that your product or service has an unbelievable competitive advantage over others. You have taken on this enormous risk, both financially and psychologically, and those around you have doubted and questioned just how successful this venture could possibly be. Now’s the time, the “blindfold” is on and you have one focus…launch this business.

What’s wrong with this? Everyone wants their business up and running as quickly as possible, right?
