Rank #1: 004: Who is our real stakeholder and who's advice should we follow?
Today we talk about
- Decision making of what is the right entry way into the podcast industry. Should we cater our app to podcast creators or podcast listeners? - Who's advice should we follow? Should we be more strategic where we focus on finding holes in industries and filling them for higher odds of success or follow our "passion" where we build something cool without caring about the market much? There's a demand in the side of podcast creators with lack of analytics, should we pursue to fill that need (aka be entrepreneurial) or build the most out of the box podcast player? - What is our passion? What do we want to be building out of this startup? Are we too naive and have a developers mindset? - What are our odds, and where do we want to see ourselves in a few years
