Yesterday Kyle and I had an outdoor lunch with a local entrepreneur who wanted to throw two ideas at us. The first idea was a throwaway. At least he thought so. When he began to describe the idea we provided our feedback, our ideas, and tried to lay out several paths that could help him make this idea a reality.
As we continued talking you could see his surprise at how much bigger the idea became simply by talking it through with someone. Never underestimate sharing your ideas with others.
We never did get around to discussing his second idea.
