First Steps In Product Evolution |Chapter 5:My Willpower, Log 2|Colluide

Topic: Product Evolution (Part 1)

“Genius is perseverance in disguise” –Mike Newlin

As far as I had progressed in building my business, I was pretty much starting over again since my idea was being reborn. With just the implementation of a new feature for my website I started a chain reaction of new ideas and purposes just waiting to be explored. Consequently, I had to change my pitch to accommodate the new product. As I mentioned in the previous article, entrepreneurs have to continuously update the pitch of their product. However, I still needed to figure out the specifics of the new grading features of the website.


The idea of my product was to simply just add a way for users to upload content to be graded in some manner by the public. This would result in grades for each individual post made and an accumulated grade for their profile too. This would provide opportunities for users to upload content of the achievements that they have accomplished to be revered by the public and then graded… The intent of these grades was to replace the typical GPA of students and provide first hand proof of awesome life experiences.  This would provide a distinguishing feature for my product and if executed right could be fun and addicting to just grade a bunch of cool memes, pictures, and videos for hours on end.

With this reformed concept in mind, my product pitch was growing more towards providing a professional college recruiting social network for users to share and grade achievements/experiences. It was a start…

Now endowed with a new concept and resolve, all I had to do was to get somebody to build my new feature in my existing product. Although, getting a developer was always my perpetual issue. However, now that I had more experience, a product pretty much already done, and a new product idea. So this time should be different in getting a developer, or so I thought. I even took a slightly different approach by asking my friends if they knew anybody willing to help. Alas, I was aligned with someone with the skills and background perfect for the job. A phone meeting was set up; despite my developer issues in the past, could this one better than the rest and provide me with a different result?

Overall, to keep a product relevant in our growing economy change is imminent. Whether a product is launched or in progress the proper research needs to be done to keep the product useful in the modern world. Even big time companies such as Facebook or Snapchat continue to survey their users and improve their product to ensure its relevance. An entrepreneur in progress needs to ensure that the idea is manifested through a modern and contemporary product in our technologically advanced world.

There was plenty of frustration for mw since it I felt that I made a step forward then two steps back. This is very common in the entrepreneurial journey, have the determination to keep your idea evolving and learning from your past shortcomings. I truly believe that to succeed you must:
