Someone might steal your idea

"Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; 
and it giveth light unto all that are in the house."

Be careful, or someone might steal your business idea. Of course, if you focus on protecting your idea, it will not grow. If the thought of someone stealing your idea makes you anxious, then please release yourself from the thought.

Tell people your idea. Ideas are cheap. You might think your idea is so brilliant, but if so, why aren't you making money off of it? You're hiding it under a bushel. Share your idea with as many people as possible.

   - helps investors hear about it
   - commits you to following through (later, you'll be embarrassed if
     you didn't make progress when people ask, "so, what ever 
     happened with that idea?" 
   - gathers potential supporters, allies, and employees

Your biggest competitor is yourself. You can stop you before you've ever begun. Go ahead and spread the idea.
