5 Awesome Companies That Emerged From Crappy Ideas

5 Awesome Companies That Emerged From Crappy Ideas. »

A great reminder that a key ingredient for startup success is to be flexible.

On my primary product, I’ve made 2 major pivots in 4 months. I’m learning to focus on solving the problem rather than implementing any one solution.

It’s hard. We become invested in the big idea. Doing so prevents us listening to the subtle signals the market sends.

The flip-side is that every solution will have its detractors. I think a real talent (that I’m yet to acquire) is knowing when to take on feedback and when to ignore it.
