Learning to sell your vision is one of the most important skills for any startup founder. No matter how great your idea is, if you are unable to make others understand and buy into the brilliance of your idea then it is highly likely to remain just that: an idea. Early investors and employees will not join you because of who you are today. They will buy into the vision of who you will be tomorrow. The ability to sell your vision may even reduce your upfront costs today! Thankfully, learning how to sell your vision can be learned like any other skill and can even be taught. Look up a course, reach out to that ridiculously charming friend or even invest in consultations with experts to help you optimize how to sell your vision to specific audiences. The return on time and money invested into this skill is likely to create returns all throughout your career, and even throughout life itself.
