Nuggets:

  • You can license an expensive domain name, if you need it for SEO or marketing but don’t have the capital in your business yet.
  • If a client takes advantage of you or your idea gets stolen consider the odds of it happening again before wasting time on reparation or retaliation.

Action Steps:

  1. Brainstorm incentive structures with a behavioral economist
  2. Wireframe the app and shop it to JetBlue, Delta, etc…
  3. Research economics around credit card companies’ partnership with airlines
  4. Search for existing flight tracking apps. Offer to buy one for cheap. Add this idea to it.
