Great course. I'm inspired to make some changes in my own business and start looking at ways to better optimize my workflow. It's a great step by step process to analyzing a business idea properly, rather than rushing into starting a business without proper due diligence.

Enjoying so far - running my own business I have also found it a useful 'refresher' to reevaluate our direction and services that we currently offer allowing me to take a 3rd person perspective on our products - 'to step back from the canvass' so to speak - would recommend for anyone with a new or current product. Thanks!
