Don’t spend a year making something. Do a tiny product first.
"A good business doesn’t mean it is a good business for you"
"Just because people pay money for your thing doesn’t necessarily mean it solves their problem"

"It is better to sell a smaller product for less money than to sell nothing"
"People buy when they are confronted with a reason to take time to read the details and make a decision"
“The big thing I want people to avoid is to spend a year making something and then [get] no sales…do a tiny product first.”
