what were your first impression did you have to begin with? why? who did you converse with? what did you get from them? what did you give to them? how was the process of feedback? was it natural? forced? why? how did this change your views on your project? how do you feel about your project now? what are you next steps? action plan ?

I quickly found that the more i started speaking about my ideas the more they developed, i feel like this process of just conversations is extremely valuable and is something i plan to continue.
