Creating a strategy from scratch can feel like a daunting task. Plus, it’s a very “corporate” word that I think has developed an unfair reputation. Strategies aren’t just fluff. They also don’t need to be overwhelming. When I started my last startup, I think I spent 30 minutes developing a quick strategy. What that did for me was it gave me a runway to run as fast as I could without looking up and getting distracted. I’m hoping this lesson of #theprep will help you get that runway you need.
