The objective is to reduce the amount of risk associated with your business idea and learn more. It's not a straight line validating. Think if it as a series and zig zags to gather supporting evidence to validate your riskiest assumptions.

Startup success isn't just dreaming up ideas but as much as discovering and rapidly discarding the wrong ones. You start with an idea and that idea is mostly wrong and then you adapt that idea and keep refining it and engage on a recursive improvement and iterating in a loop until you de-risk the proposition and find signals of a viable business.

The art of turning nothing into something is humbling and fought experience that is challenging to quantify wether it's worth embarking on during the early discovery and ideation phase. Yet, it can be one of the most rewarding experiences.

I've obsessed over product validation. The art and science of finding the answers to our riskiest assumptions and ultimately de-risking the probability we build something no one wants or needs.

I've read hundreds if not thousands of articles, listened and watched months worth of content, attended talks, paid for courses and yet I haven’t found a digestible, practical guide.

I've witnessed countless creators and founders making the same mistakes time and time again and it's frustrating as it can be avoided through education.

For the last 8 years i've been a product manager for a startup studio, incubating software startups and helping founders de-risk their conceptual ideas and helping them build the technology. I’ve worked for bootstrapped and venture backed startups including a Y Combinator startup. I’ve built my own digital products and businesses, two of which have been acquired. I've also had countless fail.

I’m not saying this to flex, but to convey my experience and understanding of the validation process.

I’ve been planning this site for years and i’m finally ready to bring it to life and begin my mission to educating as many founders and creators as possible using my distilled personal experience and learnings from successes and failures of creators, founders and their products.

This site will contain my compiled learning, hacks, tips and first hand examples all distilled into one place. But I won't lie to you. This isn't a silver bullet. You don't complete the course and forget about the learnings. In software, there’s no finish line. There’s always more to build and validate, therefore this course won't just get you from 0-1 but 1+.

It will teach you how to be more product minded with the aim to save you time and money and discover clear signals to inform your next move.

Let's get started!
