People don’t buy lemonade from kids because they are selling awesome lemonade. They buy it to support the cute kids as they learn a few things about how businesses work.
For the majority of my life I’ve used a lemonade stand-style approach. Whenever I’ve asked people to support and idea, those people have mainly been family and friends. These are people who love me and want the best for me. The problem is that they will support me irrespective of the quality of my idea. As a result, I don’t have a great sense of which ideas are strong enough to stand on their own.
In the free market, however, your growth depends on the quality of your idea (in general, anyway).
As a result, I’ve decided to share this blog with people who might value following my journey for its own merit and not because they know me. For the foreseeable future, I won’t be sharing any of this on Facebook.
Instead, I’ll share my posts with aligned subreddits on Reddit, on Twitter and on LinkedIn.
