Lesson 2: Traction!

Once you know you need a co-founder let’s figure out some things before bringing on someone onboard. These include:
– Know your business idea: this means having done the market research and knowing what’s out there
– Know your value prop: what makes this business different?
– Come up with monetization strategy and models: at some point monetization has to kick in at some point or it’s dead-end.
– Figure out the equity portion: how much equity are you willing to give? The more up front about what the role is and what is not it’s better for the potential co-founder
– Come up with a landing page: this means start building up your subscribers prior to launch.

Which is essentially more attractive to you?
Scenario A: “Hey, I’m working on this idea with 1,000 subscribers and a pre-launch site. Want to help me build it?”
Scenario B: “Hey, I’m working on this amazing business idea.”

But remember, your traction speaks louder than words.
