Don't be afraid to share your ideas

So, here's something that might resonate with many women startup entrepreneurs. You have the most amazing idea, you think it's original and could be hugely successful, but you sit alone scared to tell anyone about it because you think someone else might steal it or copy it and beat you to the punch. But the fact is that an idea only becomes something really exciting when it is converted into reality. To coin a well-known phrase, ideas are a dime a dozen, but the gold is in how that idea is executed. The bottom line is that sharing of ideas, and collaborating on ways of turning those ideas into innovative products and services, can be a great way of shaping a business and getting something to market quickly. At the end of the day, speed to market is everything. But a well thought out business plan and product development strategy can happen as a result of sharing your ideas and bringing together the necessary talent to get things done. So, don't be afraid to share your ideas and to collaborate - it can be a game-changer.
