We are writing this article to help you identify what you need to do in order to succeed in your about to start-up business idea or probably you have already started but finding it difficult to expand.
1. Accurate Identification of Wants:
There is a huge difference between needs and wants. While need is a state of felt deprivation, wants on the other hand are desires that can be satisfied by consuming a good or a service. Because people cannot have everything they want they must choose some things and give up others.
For instance, Mr. Adams needs food, but wants Fried Rice and not Beans. Most start ups; because they do not accurately identify the wants… They produce what people are not willing and able to buy… Then they crash.

Examine this allegory;
For a boat to move forward on the river, the persons who rolls the boat uses the paddle on the opposition waves which ought to drive the boat backwards, by paddling, they move the boat forward. If they refuse to paddle the waves will chatter the course of the boat 🚢.
