Takeaways

Use your feedback

Most of the time, the idea we start out with is not what our business looks like some way down the track.  It is through feedback that we are able to change course, and the more rapidly we do that, the closer to product-market fit we will be.

Talk to all of your markets

Like many businesses, you may have more than one market.  If this is the case, ensure you are listening to, and learning from, all of your markets.  Each market will have different needs and will react differently to your processes.  Don't assume.  Test them all.

Leverage your strengths

Getting started is usually the hardest part of any journey, and starting a business is no different.  If you're not sure where to start, look to yourself first, and what you are good at.  Find your own strengths and start there.  If you can code, start building something.  If you can sell, start talking to customers before you worry about having a product.  It all depends on the skills you have.
