The longest path involves having an idea and launching a project hoping to strike it rich. And yes, you might get lucky just like them.

A shorter way involves investing a small amount of money (yours or from angel investors) to navigate through the outlined stages and reach your first cash-out, multiplying your investment. I will outline the most common scenario for launching any business.

We recommend not directly competing feature-for-feature with rivals. Instead, find new opportunities for competition by leveraging innovations (like new consumer habits, AI) to capture market share. For example, in the past, we went to the market for groceries. Now, couriers deliver them to our homes. Technology has evolved, and there has always been a demand for this convenience.

4. Testing business model viability through iterative economic projections.

5. Attracting investments and your first cash-out🎉 These funds might be enough to cover the initial costs.

You have confirmed that your product sells well and is in demand. This is sought after by some investors, and you can make money by selling a stake to them.

6. Ensuring the product's unit economics are viable through iterations.

Revenues may not cover expenses. Investments are required for:

- a team and marketing to continue revenue growth in identified sales channels

- reaching profitability

- developing competitive advantages to stay ahead of competitors.

7. Sale of your second share🎉 of the created product. It's possible the money earned could last you for the rest of your long life.

​ A rough estimate of your business value is five times its annual revenue.

Two reasons to sell a share for the second time:

1. Investors attracted the first time want to recoup their expenses with a profit.

2. The duration of each business project, from the idea to the sale of the business, is 5-10 years. It is advantageous to exit on time before the company's value decreases due to new trends or competitors. Of course, it can grow much more than 10 years, and you may choose not to exit the business. With the right investor and their money, your business and its value can multiply.

Of course, growth can also be organic, funded by loans or profits.
