Ron Garret has posted are rather clever article, The Top 10 Geek Business Myths.
Although I don’t think it’s just limited to Geeks. I have people come in from time to time wanting a quote on a website that, in their eyes, will be the next big thing. Some are extremely reluctant to tell me about their idea “in case I steal it”! (How can I possibly do up a propsal for them if they won’t tell me what they’re wanting to do???)
And I look through this list and they are making all the same assumptions that are listed here.
Think I’m going to hang onto this link and print it off for the next one that comes in!
