Newbie!

Hey folks! Reading through all your amazingly informative and invaluable posts and discussions already. Thank you.

New here, so brief introduction. 40years young(?) living in Edinburgh. Black cabbie by trade, however, a job I very much dislike. For the past 3 years I've been exploring possible business start-ups. Initially, it pains me to say, through selling on Amazon, and more so for the money. I know. After failing miserably, but through the process of realizing money wasn't my driver(spurred on by the amazing book, Unscripted by MJ De Marco), I've been following what lights me up. Fitness(and sharing my affinity) and my creative side.

I'm looking to explore this further through web design, video and photo editing, which I love doing. As well as a small business venture I've been working on(website only for the moment so early stages).

A late starter, but very much looking forward to soaking up the discussions from like-minded individuals, as well as hopefully learn a lot from all the experience on offer here.

Also just to add, I'm looking for a bit of guidance on the correct area I can find info on where to get feedback for your idea and delivery so far? Struggling to find suitable topics for this. Only a very basic website so far so very early stages.

Thanks

Gareth.

    Welcome to the community. As for your questions, if you want feedback on your website, I would recommend posting in our website critique forum. You can also look through the business planning forum or several other categories for advice. Additionally, I recommend checking out the content side of the website, www.startupnation.com, for extremely helpful how-to and informative articles.

    Hi Ryan. Thanks so much for your response and sharing your experience. I'll check out all three options you mentioned. Hope I didn't break any guidelines. It's more about the merit of the idea itself. I wondered how other start ups managed to gain feedback on the idea? I've looked at survey companies. But someone strongly advised against due to the inaccuracy of the responses. Also mentioned was a market analysis from a company which I'm currently looking into.


    Your there links mentioned I'm sure will be invaluable. So thanks again for your help and advice on the subject.

    Gareth.

    No guidelines violated! I just like to share those so you are not caught off by any policies moving forward.
