This took me 10 minutes to do.
I spent hours doing Figma this week. As a maker, it was a smart decision. As an entrepreneur, it was a total waste of time.
Here are my notes, if you want a summary of the main ideas: docs.google.com/document/d/1x…

5 point takeway from the talk 🧵
1) I started with a Solution instead of a Problem, but I am not going to pivot. I am going to treat this as an experiment. My null hypothesis is that Expert Sheets will fail. I have until the end of July to disprove that. I am not committing for life. But I am committing for the rest of the BET 300 course.
2) ____ is 10yrs ahead. Remember to contextualize his advice. This applies generally to any alumni advice.
3) You can hack LinkedIn! Recruiters pay LinkedIn lots of money for access to user data. You can take advantage of that. To get a call from a recruiter - search on LinkedIn every day at 12pm est (lunchtime). Soon enough, recruiters will start reaching out to you!
4) There is always the option of pivoting. I could go up to ___ in Week 10 and he would let me start a new business. But I do not plan going this route (see #1)
5) Entrepreneurs need to be okay with rejection. Even great salesman are rejected 90% of the time. For people who’ve grown up getting 90% of the marks, that’s a tough mindset shift. But it’s a necessary one. Get used to failing.
