In 2022, I'm talking with at least 12 different founders on my podcast. I want to learn insights from their industry. I will also be discussing the problem they are solving and how. My goal is to develop a better understanding of the startup ecosystem in Japan. For the first guest, I talked with Eric Turner, the founder of JapanDev.
My top 3 takeaways from the interview with Eric:
- Focus on testing the value and growth hypotheses of your business. Stop screwing around with shiny new tech.
- Build what benefits your customers, not what you find easy.
- Easiest marketing hack for developers: Build In Public. It's the most authentic way to connect with your customers.
