What's stopping you from Starting?

Recently worked out one of the main problems I was having when starting a new project, and after speaking to a few other entrepreneurs I realised it was a common problem. So I decided to make a video about it.

I would love to hear your thoughts on it!

Claud, this is such a cool video! I watched it over breakfast this morning and thought it was brilliant. Very well done and from the heart too. It made me smile

I've already Tweeted it this morning but will do it again now so more people get the chance to see it and feel inspired!

(I've also shared it on our Facebook Page at www.facebook.com/ShellLiveWIREUK)

Thanks a lot Paul! I really appreciate that

I've got more videos in the works, but I also wanted to ask is there a way to embed the video into the forum rather then just posting the link? I think it would make it easier for people to watch them without leaving the Shell Livewire website.

Hi Claud, unfortunately not but I like your video so much that I've embedded a screenshot image of your video and hyperlinked it to YouTube which is the workaround for putting videos on the Forum (see above).

Great video, Claud! I definitely swear by the 'permanent beta' mentality and I'm always eager to get things out as soon as possible, sometimes maybe a bit too early though! It totally depends on your industry but for me in the web industry, I use a great site called www.forrst.com to share my projects on a closed beta to other developers which is great if it's not quite ready for the public but you need other peoples opinions. I'm sure there's similar sites for other people in different industries, if not, you may of just found a niche you can fill!

Paul you're actually awesome!

Hey Adam, I think you might be onto some thing. I guess for some industries its not as easy have closed BETAs over the internet. However, there still may be a massive opportunity there!

Hey Habazlam,
It really is something which is hard to change, however for me I got past it by thinking of how all the potential benefits outweigh to potential risks. I also made myself accountable to a few friends, who now will force me to a project out there to the world rather then just keeping it a secret and trying to perfect it.

Truth is: no project/business is ever perfect.
