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?

One topic that comes up over and over again with both groups is mistakes made in starting businesses. Newbies love to learn about mistakes so they can avoid them. Veterans love to talk about what they wish they had known when starting out.

These conversations have been fascinating, so we compiled a list of the 10 mistakes we hear most often into a nifty lil' guide.
