How do you know if your idea will make a profitable product?
What if your new product makes your life a nightmare? Nasty customers call for support in the middle of the night. You have to work double-shift because your product is not profitable enough for quitting your day-job. Your hands are full to even think about building another product that could save the situation.

Yes, we bootstrappers can’t just pick any product idea. We can’t throw money at problems like excessive support load or inadequate server capacity. We can’t market with free plans and few of us have funds for live marketing.
We need to make sure in advance that we pick a product idea that we can fund, build and maintain with our limited resources.
