    The core of a startup isn’t building a product; it’s giving a person value. Here’s what that means for your MVP and for your subsequent growth.
  • The Great Filter of Startups
    The evolutionary leap that only a small fraction of startups manage to make
  • Manhandle Your Early Users
    The approach that successful founders use to break through the traction barrier
  • The Bloated MVP Test
    A simple 10-question test that tells you if you’ve just wasted your life on a bloated MVP
