First off, a bit of background. I have a rather extensive financial background with a career path to Financial VP or CFO. Over the years, I have worked with many operational personnel and have helped them run their businesses successfully. However, now I am tired of being just “the finance guy” and have always dreamed of creating my company and “conquering the world!” My issue is that I don’t have any real technical knowledge. I’m not an engineer, so I can’t design and build a physical product for market. I’m not a programmer, so I cannot code software.
I’m struggling to find the path to start off my dream.
Ideas? Yeah, I’ve got ’em! But who cares! What matters is how to execute on those ideas, and I do not have the skill set to make any of my ideas into a viable product, but I DO have the skill set to sell, grow, optimize, run, and diversify the business. If I have to partner with someone that has those skill sets, then I’m not completely opposed to it, but I just cannot find the pathway to start my dream.
Has anyone else come across this problem?
