I’m writing this post on a MegaBus from Philly to NYC at 11PM at night on a Monday night. The quick Philadelphia trip was for a Brushfire event where myself, Antonio Neves and Jason Wisdom were speaking to students at Drexel University.
Some of the students we speak to end up asking in some form or another: “How do you know when to start something or when something is good enough to share?” That sparked this post.

After putting yourself in the best position possible with the greatest network, with all of the resources and all of the knowledge, there will come a time where it’s you vs. the work. No more preparation, no more planning, no more reading. You have to do the work.
Undefined, uncertain, unapologetic, work.
Death by lack of preparation is surely no way to chase your dreams, but death by research is no way to fulfill them either.
No one can tell you the perfect time to start but you can’t start after you die.
This post is for my new website, which undoubtedly could have been better
This post is for Brushfire, which surely could have been more refined
This post is for The Accountability Effect, which definitely could have been fine tuned
This post is for everyone who got something out there when it wasn't perfect yet
This post is for everyone who is about to share something even though they're scared as hell to do it
What have you been putting off or delaying by over researching? How can I help?
