I think this is a critical piece of advice that founders too often miss. I spent 2 years bootstrapping tung.fm, a social podcast player, which obviously needs a community around it to create the network effect. Building community is not my strong suit and even though it launched 1 year before Breaker, Breaker launched with a huge community behind it and it has seen far more growth. Of course I think it’s easier said than done to build a community. But critical for most startups. Well said Ryan!
