Is it okay to kill a business idea? Absolutely!

A short story short. I have two friends who poured, well more like sprinkled some money into an idea. After two months of meeting about the idea, my friends started to realize that the idea evolved as much as it could and it still wasn’t the killer idea that they had hoped for. One of the reasons being that their idea involved quite a bit of manpower and competition was fierce. Eventually, they concluded to hold off on the idea and pursue a different idea. Now, was that the right thing to do? Absolutely!  At any time, don’t feel committed to moving forward with a business idea.  Ideas and businesses evolve and some just suck so bad that there is no way to help it.  Save your money and time now.  Focus on an idea that you are passionate about it.  It is more fun to have fun along the way.
