Convincing people to buy stuff

has been around for a long time.
But really here’s the point…
Technology changes, but people stay the same

Growth opportunities arise constantly:

Classic strategies x New platforms x Smart execution
My challenge to you:
Study the classics.

Execute thoughtfully and iteratively
Ignore quick growth hacks
Only trust ideas that 100+ years old :)
