One of my favorite people is someone I’ve never met. His name is Derek Sivers and he started a company called CD Baby, which he eventually sold.
Now he gives talks to companies about entrepreneurship and various “soft” topics like this one: how your idea might be good, so go ahead and put it out there. Watch this YouTube video; it’s truly inspirational.
If you or a friend has an idea, but you’re afraid no one will think it’s brilliant, put it out there anyway. You just might be on to something.
