My love letter (and goodbye?) to Austin

Man this was a great read. I don’t know anything about what you’re doing from a sales standpoint but to me that is your real issue. User growth and the experience are all great but you have to show you can sell local. You’re a black CEO (that’s hard and you’re doing it), Local content is hard (you’re doing it), user growth is hard (you’re doing it), selling to local businesses is hard (you’re not doing it). Just my thoughts on what I see and not knowing the full picture. I don’t think it’s because you’re in Austin…in fact I think Austin is right where you need to be. Best of luck!
