Ike is confident after going back to the fundamentals that he has a niche in which he can serve and a problem that he can help others solve.
My name is Ike from Washington DC and, yeah, I bought the Consultant Accelerator program back in December 2016 and my intention was to at least start off with learning the program, without a full idea fleshed to my head. And so before the program, already had working experience as a software developer and completed my Master's degree and from that point on I wanted to eventually become an entrepreneur and work in areas of like big data and quantum technologies but I never had an idea fully fleshed out. And I was hoping through the Consultant Accelerator program, the idea would flesh out. And so, I went through week one and essentially it was an exercise that was trying to figure out the demands and problems of a particular niche and when I was going through that process, I never ... I still was stuck at that time so ... For me, I felt that I needed to take a step back and take some time away from the program and rather than focus or continue with the program because week two was when you start to go into techniques of selling you product, and I never really had any product developed by that time, so instead I went ahead and started just trying to learn more about the field that I was interested in and trying to see exactly what demands and problems there was. So I started reaching out to different professors in the field of quantum computing and trying to see what the status of the development in that area. And I eventually came across a certain idea and so now, I believe I found a particular niche for myself and I'm ready to get back into the program and give it a full run. And hopefully make the most of it. And so as far as recommending the program for others, I possibly would. It is just a matter of you can usually find your own niche and not just finding your own niche but is has to be something that there is a true desire for. There's a true problem that people are looking for solutions. And for me, I feel that I may have found it based on my talk with people in the field and hopefully I am able to make the most out of the feelings that I've came across and learned. And that's it for me.
