What is the first thing I should do if I have a startup idea?

When I first sort out the idea I write it down. I have literally hundreds of business ideas written down on my notebooks and I talk to a lot of people about it, like with InDinero I read all my other friends on what they thought about it, like how much would you pay for this and then I’d actually try to sell them on it, and maybe InDinero there wasn’t right or ready for, but just knowing that they would pay for it and actually contract meant that this was an idea that was ready for primetime.
