Hanging out in a group means that you’re just a group of friends doing things together.
Some teens report uncomfortable situations where a couple of friends pair off and the rest of the people in the group feel like they are tagging along on a date.
I would suggest the latter until you know different.
I am a serial high-tech entrepreneur with expertise in developing new markets (discovering, developing and scaling business ventures with high potential).
Avoid the awkward hybrid activity where some of you are paired up and others aren’t.
Make sure everyone is lined up with a date when you’re group dating.
The biggest step to clearing up the haze very early in the startup process is having the presence of mind and the courage to ask the right questions.
We have also visited with youth from a variety of places and have found that there are some common questions that LDS youth would like answered.
Before you do significant damage to your personal, professional and financial well-being, I highly recommend taking a hostile witness approach to your startup idea.
It’s important for you to see very early the reality of the situation and clearly recognize when things can be improved and when to call it quits.
Rather than risk rejection up front, we would rather ride it out and hope that “love” will be enough.
Discovering, developing and scaling a profitable business model is equal parts passion equal parts analytics and unfortunately, founders usually err more to the passion side of the equation until it’s too late.It’s love at first sight and no one can convince you otherwise.
