Pre-test analisys

It is my first time using SmartPLS. My model has 1 dependent variable and 3 independent variables. I ran the G*Power calculus and it resulted in a miminum sample with 74 individuals.

I applied a pre-test questionnaire with 29 individuals in order to validate the questions' compreensibility and adequability. And I have a doubt if i can run PLS Algorithm and bootstrapping with this sample? This would be just a preliminar test.

Generally, such a model should be estimable, but I doubt that you really get meaningful results from such a small sample size. More data is always better, but you should also think about your population and whether your sample really represents that population.
