3 tips for turning your business idea into reality

Small Talks features insider expertise from successful small business owners. This video series offers insider advice and highlights how real entrepreneurs overcame their most pressing challenges. Emile Cambry, Jr., wanted to create a space where a diverse group of people could come together to build businesses, learn something new and inspire others along the way. So he founded Blue|1647, a network of technology and entrepreneurship centers in Chicago, offering workshops, workforce development, and coworking spaces. Blue|1647 is like a launch pad for entrepreneurs who are just getting started. These “wantrepreneurs” have an idea, but they don’t quite have a plan for bringing their ideas to life. Since he opened the business four years ago, Cambry has watched 15,000 budding entrepreneurs get their businesses off the ground. He shared some of their top tips for finding the support and inspiration to succeed. How do successful entrepreneurs bridge the gap between ideas and execution? 1. They assemble a great support team.  Collaborating with others can help you come up with that great idea and turn it into a great business. That’s why it’s important to find teammates who are just as strong, if not stronger, than yourself. When you have that kind of support, you can grow your business faster. 2. They talk to entrepreneurs outside their space. “We tell our entrepreneurs to talk to some people that have nothing to do with their space whatsoever,” Cambry said. For instance, it’s easy for tech people to talk to other tech people about tech concepts because everyone uses a common language. But, Cambry added, “If you have to explain something to [someone] that may never buy your product but has to sell someone else on buying that product, then you can really start seeing some powerful things.” 3. They focus on the small wins. Rather than focusing on starting a chain of restaurants across the country, put your energy toward starting just one restaurant. The trick is to think small so that you can accomplish your goal without the need for too much financing. “If you burn too much capital up front, it makes it…
