Customer development is a LONG process. If can feel like you're on a hamster wheel, running endlessly with little to no progress made. That's okay! Spending the time and energy here will save you time and energy later + improve your startups chance of success. #buildinpublic
2 weeks ago I realized that my product didn't have a clear vision because I didn't fully understand the problem. I decided to stop coding and start talking to people again. After ~12 calls I'm coding again with a MUCH more clear vision. Excited for what's next. #buildinpublic
I think the hardest part of building a startup is identifying the problem. I'm a bit biased (I already have an audience) but getting crystal clear on the problem to be solved and then figuring out how to communicate that problem has been tough. #buildinpublic
I just enrolled in a Front End Developer cert program from Meta. I learned to code to build my startup but there are gaps in my knowledge. This will make me a better developer, help me build faster, and help me recruit better devs.
Customer interviews are literally the highest value task an early stage start-up can do. I would say even more so than building product. Holy heck did I just get a TON of valuable insight #buildinpublic
The weird bugs that only pop up in production builds of an app will forever amaze me. That's like if I recorded a whole podcast with no issues and on the playback there were just random noises that didn't exist in real life. #buildinpublic
Got TestFlight working (finally) and officially started solo testing. Hopefully there aren’t too many bugs and I can roll the test out to pre-sales next week :). Need to start getting some customer interviews scheduled. #buildinpublic
