Three Takeaways:

1. The Launch Sequence is for everyone.
Whether you’re launching a big business, or new idea for a project at work—this process works for it all.

2. Feedback is essential.
You need to go into the marketplace or talk to your peers and ask them for objective feedback. You’ll be thankful you did.

3. The Launch Sequence is cyclical.
