Nothing. You have to understand that an idea isn't worth anything if you can't execute it. I could come up with an idea to fly to Mars, but unless I have the resources and ability to do it - it's not going to happen. Context: I wrote about Ghost - https://ghost.org - a full 6 months before it went on Kickstarter. The first version of the product was delivered (open source, so really anyone could "swipe" it) a year after I first made the idea public. There is very little value in ideas. There is a great deal of value in the people who execute them. Is your idea interesting? Do you have the experience and skillset to make it happen? If yes, then you have nothing to hide.

John was completely open and really helpful. Answered all the questions I've had, straight to the point. Thanks, John!
John had some excellent advice for our upcoming Kickstarter campaign. He made some great recommendations that we will be able to execute on!
John is amazing!! Was spot on with advice around how to grow and service the blogging community. Literally the best call I have had on Clarify. Excited to see how he revolutionizes blogging with Ghost.
John was friendly, thoughtful and open. Would highly recommend a call with him to anyone looking for design or startup advice.
