Go-To-Market Fit: The Missing Link for Enterprise Growth — If you are an entrepreneur struggling to find market fit, then this is a must read!

“Winning early customers and finding PMF is indeed a critical milestone and profound moment to be celebrated by enterprise startups. Yet, the hard truth is that finding PMF isn’t sufficient to unlock growth for enterprise startups. There’s a missing link between finding PMF and unlocking growth. That missing link didn’t have a name, but it is an equally important milestone and eureka moment. We call the missing link Go-To-Market Fit (GTM Fit).”


Elon Musk: Tesla, SpaceX, and the Quest for a Fantastic Future by Ashlee Vance

Quotes from the book:

“He goes into his brain, and then you just see he is in another world. He still does that. Now I just leave him be because I know he is designing a new rocket or something.” — Elon Musk’s mother

“They got my best [expletive] friend to lure me out of hiding so they could beat me up. And that [expletive] hurt. For some reason they decided that I was it, and they were going to go after me nonstop. That’s what made growing up difficult. For a number of years there was no respite. You get chased around by gangs at school who tried to beat the [expletive] out of me, and then I’d come home, and it would just be awful there as well.” — Elon Musk
