Every idea is like a seed. It will not grow, if not put into the ground. But the soil alone can’t provide the seed with all the necessary nutrients. The sun and water are also crucial for the plant to grow. The same goes for ideas. If you leave them by themselves, they will not sprout, nor will they grow. You have to put them out there and provide them with ingredients that they need. The task is not easy, especially when your resources are limited and insufficient. But what if there was someone to help you out? A kind, gentle gardener who would keep your plants moisturized and sun-kissed. Someone, who would help your business startup to sprout and grow into healthy, beautiful thing?
