I know, it’s a bold request to ask a startup to focus on anything other than their product and growth. I know, I’m a startup founder myself. I know that time is our most limited resource and that you have to say no to a lot of things in order to maintain your focus, and sanity. So why am I writing a post telling you to focus on community? Because I’ve seen first hand, and in the example of many other startups, the power that community can wield even at the earliest stages of your growth.
