Did you notice beverage development is number 9 on the list?
Yes, most entrepreneurs that have called me over the last 15 years want to start with number 9. I think this is because they would like to have control over their idea, or their formula. Remember, you can’t patent a formula, and everyone can copy or reproduce your formula. However, they can’t copy or reproduce your business plan. Your value proposition is your business model; it’s the way to sell to distributors, the way you contact consumers, or the branding that you created for your products.
