As an entrepreneur you will always need to be in contact with your customers. You want to ensure that everything your company does related to customers is on the highest possible level.

In my experience, many entrepreneurs are full with ideas about new products. But, their ideas are not executed. They finished as garbage in some part of their brain or simply on a forgotten piece of paper. But it is not all.

They never become real products or services.
