Two big pieces of advice

Never underestimate the power of feedback from partners and clients. You need to understand what your product does well, what your clients would like it to do, and who your clients look towards when your product isn’t getting the job done. You learn more about your competitors from people who use your competitors.

When it comes to growth, understand whether to drive quality or quantity. In the beginning, the focus should be quality until you can build a scalable process.
