Welcome to Ideas to Reality

A different approach to developing entrepreneurs

Why did I create Ideas to Reality?

I believe that there’s untapped potential in people out there. People that have thought about an idea that could turn into something great but don’t act on it because they didn’t have the support, the affirmation, or the know-how. People are left to themselves to learn how to follow through on an idea. There’s a lack of mentors out there. Investors could be mentors but most just look to invest in big ideas or entrepreneurs with “exits”. How are new entrepreneurs supposed to get started if they don’t know how to develop their idea and don’t have track record of success? Imagine a world if everyone with a good idea had the support to see it through. Ideas to Reality is here to develop these overlooked entrepreneurs

You don’t need to solve a problem

Most startup literature tells you to solve a problem. What problem does Disney, Snapchat, Candy Crush or Starbucks solve? None. They created new demand by creating great experiences that make their users and clients love their product. Start-up culture sprang from technologists who solve problems. There is a place in the world for solving problems but products and services that that make us happier are being overlooked. Rather than finding problems to solve that make our lives incrementally better, find something you care about and work on creating a great experience that moves your audience.

How you position your product is more important than your product

Have you started to think about an idea, go to the internet to do some research and then give up on the idea because you see someone else doing something similar? You’re giving up too soon! With a pps these days, it’s less about the product and more about how you position your product to attack a target market and being creative with your business model (e.g. Uber). It’s how you execute. Technology is only the conduit of your vision and can be reproduced relatively easily, it’s probably the least important aspect of an app idea these days.

What can you expect from Ideas to Reality

My philosophy is focused on helping entrepreneurs build the foundation for a successful business. I believe future innovations will come from how well entrepreneurs execute the 6 steps of my process. The focus today is on tactics and product. It is not where people will win. You may have executed some of these steps before, but I will help you see them differently.
