Episode 158: Who am I to Launch a Business? Do I need Expertise? (FS158)

“I don’t really have deep expertise in anything. I’m more of a jack of all trades. Do I have any business starting a business?”

We’ve heard this question a number of times at Fizzle, so let’s set the record straight and give you some insights about starting a business without expertise.

Today on the show we’ll cover these two questions:

  1. Do I need expertise before I build my business?
  2. If I have some expertise, how do i know if it’s enough to warrant a legit business?
  3. BONUS: Can Barrett do a Yoda impression?

Enjoy!
