for a lot of startups I really see that the focus is more on how am I gonna you know get this big piece of this you know sort of big market share instead of you know am I really creating something that's gonna be of value to people Is there a true need for it can I actually deliver on that need And am I willing to start slow and grow slow and make something sustainable versus make something that's gonna get flipped quickly ? I can tell you that my husband and I we did everything from sweeping the floor to cleaning the toilets to you know putting the software on the computers to buying the computers to writing the curriculum to teaching . I think the typical you know MBA kind of approach is you know find a market evaluate how big the market is write a business plan figure out you know how you can tap into getting some of that market share And I've never approached our business like that I watch a lot of businesses where they get an idea but they're reliant on all kinds of other people doing every piece of it and they don't really necessarily have a big role in the mechanics of it and I think there is a lot of value in knowing all the different aspects of your business and knowing that you can kind of do it yourself
