“When everything is a test, you’re able to get things up and running faster. You can see results more quickly. You’re less invested in the results, positive or negative. You know when to call off the test and move on to something else. And you can try new and better things.”
– Leah Neaderthal, co-founder and chief marketing officer of Start Somewhere.

5 Steps to Stop Overthinking Your Marketing and Start Testing Something New
So for me social good and especially sexual education is something that I think of when people ask me what I love to do. I do love a lot of things but this I really what I envision myself doing for a long time and in todays fast paced race it’s a hard thing to do. I feel like I can build a business plan around it that will make sure me and my future team will not be killed by what I love so therefore I look into how to make it solid profitable non-profit startup. Because “Do what you love and the money will follow.” is a well known saying that we say casually to each other but it’s always easier to tell that to someone who has chosen a good career path, rather something totally outrages or….omg, “creative“!
Here are few steps to survive as “love follower”:
1. Know your audience and stay connected with them.
Me: I have a lot of my own assumptions going on and I have looked into reports and the studies, so the legal part. Now my next step is to connect with the existing “users” & “providers” of todays sexual education and discover what are their “pains”.
2. Be easy to work with.
Me: I am a person that after several jobs in the service sector, also volunteering and especially after Hyper Island, feel that I get this one, and I try to improve it more. Though I need to find my team!
3. Be prolific.
Me: To produce, I do. I am one of those people that if I don’t have several things to do I get lazy. I need to do stuff. I am trying to learn how to focus and not do a lot of scattered initiatives and results, but rather stick to few chosen ones. Which is hard cause my problem solving side is sometimes to easy to engage!
4. Create multiple stream of revenues.
Me: I have a couple ideas but I need a prototype and then MVP to sell it!
5. Don’t lose of the passion.
Me: I won’t, even through all of life’s detours for a couple years and months I still somehow feel strongly about my chosen path and I might stroll but I know where I am heading.
