You can never have too much information.
Create An Action Plan.
Once you have documented the idea it is time to create a solid action plan. Think about what, how, who, and when for your idea. Document who needs to be involved and when and don’t forget some of the important connections you might need including a good accountant and legal representative for things like patents.
