Research, research, research.
Can you tell how passionately we feel about this?
We’re not going to beat around the bush because we respect anyone looking to start a new project and we can relate; a shiny new initiative, brimming with promise, is one of life’s greatest treasures. It’s like seeing a brand new car in a sales lot and just knowing that you must have it; signing all the papers (AKA your life away completely) and committing to a years-long venture without doing the research that would have informed you the car had poorly made parts and was going to die about a year later, leaving you with a very hefty bill and the remnants of dreams past.
It’s not all that dramatic, but research is very important. Countless times we’ve seen clients go all-in to a project without taking the time to gauge its viability.
