The Slow Startup

Do not be afraid of being a slow startup. There is no need to be discouraged or distressed that you are missing out or worthless by not having Facebook like growth per week.

You need time to figure out what your startup is all about and who your real customers are (rather that the fair weather TechCrunch crowd). You need time to build a great product to address that latent audience. You need time to make sure you have the right user experience and right type of community supporting your product. If you are patient, stick to the vision, and continue to execute, the growth will come.Mark Birch
