My friend recently just told me about a business idea, which is building a service to sell lipstick. Our goal is to let girls try lipstick at the comfort of their home. We’ve talked to 10-15 girls to understand their lipstick buying habit. Not only that, we’ve already built the mvp (just a simple web to smoke test).
Yesterday, we got the chance to talk to my friend who is older than us, and have built couple successful business. Since we are a team of 2 males in their early 20s, he suggested that we change our business idea because we don’t have experience in the cosmetic world. The point he’s making is that since we don’t do makeup, we have no experience in this market and this venture is really difficult to pull off.
I agreed to take on do this venture not because I love lipstick. I don’t have any plan to learn make up. I just think that this is a cool thing to try. Should we just stop doing what we’re doing and change business idea? Would love your opinion and perspective on this.
