good morning everyone!
So recently, while reading Unscripted, i came across this term.
The desert of desertion is the duration from the idea to the first sale. Now, how can I understand when to give up or keep going?
Obviously, giving up is something that shouldn't exist in our vocabolary, but we neither can go on years and year without reaching the goal.
Are there any signals, alarm bells that could help us understand it is time to stop knocking doors?

I think we all have gone through this. It is basically the build-up to begin selling your product.For a social Media Marketer its the hours spent to rack up those followers etc For an inventor its inventing and for an ecommerce system its your first syle.

You make zero dollars in this time , you spend time doing something you do not know will become anything.

I am also going through DoD right now.
What i have learned here on Forum is to first validate your ideas using fastlane mythology and do Rapid execution.

Even if you fail, just stick.
Well, those are my thoughts, and i don't know if its correct.
Mentors and good people here may give you better and actionable answers.

Good Luck.

When nothing you try works, and you're out of ideas of what else to try, and your peers and mentors don't have anymore ideas for you, and start suggesting that maybe it's time to move on...

For most people though, they give up well before they reach that point.
