New Business Model Competition - North Jersey Region

The truth is most entrepreneurs; otherwise, they wouldn't have the audacity to launch a business. Normally this audacity is a good thing.
However, it can be devastating when you think you know what your customers need without ever having talked to them.

Talking to Humans, your customers, and getting out of the building is the most important thing you can do!

Your customers will tell you what their pain points are if you are willing to observe them and ask them questions.

But is not that simple, you need to know how to ask questions in the right way to guide you to your "true customers."
