It So Delights Them

Networking friends
“Fast growth comes from overwhelming the smallest possible audience
with a product or service that so delights that
they insist that their friends and colleagues use it.
And hyper-growth is a version of the same thing,
except those friends and colleagues quickly become
even bigger fans, and tell even more people.”
“Often, we get sidetracked when we forget about “smallest possible.”
If you make the audience you’re initially serving too big,
you will dilute the very thing you set out to make;
avoid critical mass, and compromising the magic of what you’re building.
You’ll make average stuff for average people instead of something powerful for the few.
By “smallest possible” I don’t mean, “too small.”
I mean the smallest number that, eventually,
leads to the kernel of conversation that enables you to grow.”
