Money is the best validation of a startup idea. Jonathan Goldberg needed to make sure his diamond startup idea would make money before he quit his high paying job as an investment banker for a major bank.
- Don’t quit your paying job for a startup idea until you know you have a clear path to monetization
- Use your experience to your advantage when launching a startup. Jonathan had previous experience working in the diamond industry before he launched Kimberfire
- Get out of the building and talk to customers to validate the problem… then sell. Don’t forget to sell! Money is the best validation for an idea.
Gentlemen, if you’re looking to propose to your girl, Jonathan is the man! He’s a good friend of mine and he’ll take care of you
