I guess one thing that I’ve learned for myself is that I don’t wanna work with folks who do something because they wanna get rich. If they make their decisions in life based on what markets are going to be the most profitable or what’s popular, it’s just not for me.
It’s more important to do something for the love of what you’re doing. It’s about having a love for the product and a love for users.
Instead of waking up in the middle of the night thinking about what will make you more money, wake up in the middle of the night thinking about how you can better serve your users. If you think of service first, the money will follow.
As I said before, don’t worry about your business model. Worry first about your pleasure model.
If you think about it, the greatest companies didn’t worry about making money at first. Google didn’t know how they were going to monetize search when they started but look at them now.
