Don’t let that giant website project stop you from going out and getting clients, getting results for those people, to get testimonials from people and getting you paid. That is the most important thing to prove that you have a concept that’s really going to work and it’s going to fly once you do have a website.

I think quality is one of the greatest assets that you can have at the beginning of your business before you have scaled up and you’ve gotten to a level where that’s just not possible anymore.
