Based on a question from Quora  I’ve put together this of list of tips and advice for building an MVP. These are things I find myself saying on a daily basis in some capacity or another. There’s certainly some more to be added to thist list, but for now, here’s the Top 8…

1. Read The Lean Startup by Eric Reis. If you haven’t read it recently, go back and re-read it (this time specifically thinking about how it applies to your idea).

2. Identify, study, and love the problem you are trying to solve. If you don’t know the problem you are solving, STOP! If you don’t know who else is playing in your space, STOP! If you don’t know how you are going to be 10x better than others attacking your problem, seriously pause and consider if you really want to invest effort into something where you might be marginally better than the existing solution.
