Key Question: Are You Equipped to Execute Your Idea?

Bruce Kasanoff has a great post and slide show on LinkedIn

If you are an entrepreneur - or intrapreneur - your first question needs to be: am I the right person to bring this idea to life? 
  • If you are a marketing professional who doesn't understand code, you are not the one to "leapfrog Google" and launch the next generation search engine. 
  • If you always take a three-week vacation in August, and two weeks at Christmas, you are not the one to "take down Oracle." (They are fierce warriors compared to you.) 
  • If you are a genius at coding, but you can't work with an interface designer or pick a font to save your life, you are unlikely to create a top ten consumer app.
