Don’t build a startup, build a business instead

What you should focus on instead, is to build a small business, focused on growth and most important on delivering value to your customers. The focus from day one should be on getting clients to pay for your product.
If you need a lot of money first, then it’s not a good idea for a business. A solid and healthy venture should get the money it needs from its customers, not from VCs (click to tweet).

I know many who say: “I need X amount of money to start”, “Without a VC we can’t make it” and many more excuses.
The reality is you can easily start a business while working a 9-5 job, which will dramatically reduce the amount of money you need. Then when you have 6 to 12 months of cash in the bank, you’re ready to quit your job and focus solely on your business.
