9780997082302: Will It Fly? How to Test Your Next Business Idea So You Don't Waste Your Time and Money

Stop rushing into businesses born from half-baked ideas, misguided theories, and other forms of self-delusion. A lack of proper validation kills more businesses than anything else. As Joel Barker says, 'Speed is only useful if you re running in the right direction.' Will It Fly? will help you make sure you are clear for takeoff.

It answers questions like:

  • Does your business idea have merit?
  • Will it succeed in the market you re trying to serve, or will it just be a waste of time and resources?
  • Is it a good idea for YOU?

In other words, will it fly?

Chock-full of practical suggestions you can apply to your business idea today, Will It Fly? combines action-based exercises, small-scale 'litmus tests', and real-world case studies with anecdotes from the author s personal experience of making money online, hosting successful podcasts, testing niche sites, and launching several online businesses.

Will It Fly? will challenge you to think critically, act deliberately, and dare greatly. You can think of the book as your business flight manual, something you can refer to for honest and straight-forward advice as you begin to test your idea and build a business that takes off and soars.

In five parts, Will It Fly? will guide you through the validation of your next business idea:

  • Part one, Mission Design, helps you make sure your target idea aligns with and supports your goals.
  • Part two, Development Lab, walks you through uncovering important details about your idea that you haven't even thought about.
  • Part three, Flight Planning, is all about assessing current market conditions.
  • Part four, Flight Simulator, focuses on the actual validating and testing of an idea with a small segment of a target market.
  • Finally, Part five, All Systems Go, is for final analysis to help you make sure your idea is one you are ready to move forward with.

Review:

Losing your job can be the best thing that ever happens to you. In a short period of time, former employee-turned-entrepreneur Pat Flynn has unlocked the keys to recurring, sustainable income. His new book is inspiring, but that isn't the point--instead of just cheering you on, it will take you by the hand and show you exactly what you need to do before launching your business idea. --Chris Guillebeau, NYT bestselling author of The $100 Startup

Being an entrepreneur is scary. Especially in the beginning when you feel lonely, lost, and wondering: What if my idea fails? In Will it Fly?, Pat Flynn shows you step-by-step how to figure out if your new idea will be successful before you go all in. This book is an absolute must-read for any entrepreneur looking to start a new business, enter a new market, or launch a new product. I 100% recommend reading, and re-reading this book. --Ryan Levesque, #1 National Best-Selling Author, Ask

This is the book I wish I'd read when I began my entrepreneurial journey. Its simple, practical, real-world advice would have saved me tons of time, money, and grief on the road to success. It's now my #1 recommendation for anyone who wants to launch a new product or business. --Michael Hyatt, New York Times Bestselling Author
