We’re in agreement there, Joseph.
The ambition isn’t and shouldn’t be scaled down. I’m making an argument for what to focus on when starting a business.
When starting a business, the focus should be on running a solid business; not on trying to scale up without the ability to monetize.
If you have a working business model, you can still be a small business, a small team, and have the largest market share with healthy revenue.
I was caught up in the fog of the start-up culture last year that I was distracted from this obvious focus.
