Start having conversations with prospective customers before starting the business or creating a new product or service for your existing business. You'll want to confirm there is a market need for your new idea before you go too far.
This is the fundamental step for building a sustainable business, but one of the most neglected tasks. There's nothing more important than making sure you create a product or service with market demand and with the input of your prospective customers and this is done by conducting customer discovery properly.
