[22:56] “I think the major downside that we’re wrestling with now is that it led us to invest in the early user experience because every early user spoke to us. They heard me like passionately talk about, you know, like our view of team building. And they also got bespoke recommendations for how to use the product. And so today, we have self-serve up again.” 

[24:34] “So the market will catch up to me, but I need that’s why I’m here. And my take is, you know, don’t necessarily build with customers tell you they want you to build, but certainly, you know, be talking to customers and figure out their problems and make sure it passes the Mom Test and you know, build something that solves a problem they have.”

[2:42] “You’ve got to make sure that in the early days, you don’t crush yourself and you don’t make it so you hate what you’re doing. You hate your job, you hate your company, you hate your mark. That’s not a good thing. So getting that balance, I think is super critical.”

[23:53] “I think that the best advice possible is, talk with your market, learn from them, figure out what’s needed [and] what’s necessary, what’s not necessary, and develop your product towards it. [Then] develop your marketing messages towards that, and make sure you’re servicing the customer.”
