T. 

Amelia: 

S. 

Amelia: 

Right? 

Amelia: 

So it’s funny because I feel like they’ve already been alluded to you. 

Brandon: 

Um Hopefully familiar. 

Brandon: 

You can just summarize. 

Amelia: 

Yeah. No I will. Yeah I will. Yeah I’ll just I’ll summarize them. 

Brandon: 

So one is I really think that um that just putting yourself out there for feedback and revision over and over and over and over again is so important and I think that’s really really hard for founders. 

Brandon: 

You your identity and your your sense of self worth is so tied to this thing, this baby that you’ve created and you’re almost like embarrassed to put it out there. 

Brandon: 

I mean not even almost you are embarrassed right to put out there into the world. 

Brandon: 

This thing that’s like I mean I can’t even tell you what the first version of saga was. 

Brandon: 

The first version of saw that was me literally calling people on the phone, you know, and then like dying the file and emailing it to them. 

Brandon: 

Is that the product that I envisioned? 

Brandon: 

No, you know, um but that’s what I have and so you know, I think just like as hard as it is Just just keep putting yourself out there, just keep putting yourself out there and just know it’s going to take 200, you know, revisions and iterations, right? 

Brandon: 

But you’ll get there, you’ll get better. 

Brandon: 

So that’s one um two is I think I wish I could have told my past self to be more open minded about where support was going to come from. 

Brandon: 

And I know I kind of alluded to that for the fundraising, but I would actually say that in general, um I did this thing and I guess I’ll share this is maybe a specific tactic that I may be that I would recommend very early. 

Brandon: 

Like literally after like the two weeks after I left my job, I actually started a mailing list. 

Brandon: 

It’s almost like an online, it’s just like a little diary and I had basically offered to friends and co workers and family. 

Brandon: 

I said, hey, if you’re a lot of people have said they were very curious about what’s going to happen. 

Brandon: 

And so I said, well I could have like a million coffees each week or maybe I’ll just, I’ll just send a little email update about my life. 

Brandon: 

So I started building this like subscriber list of people. 

Brandon: 

Um you know, I think we’re just curious and I would just use it as like a confessional. 

Brandon: 

I would just be like, alright, well here’s my life and here’s what’s great about it, here’s what Suki and here’s what I’m working on. 

Brandon: 

That email list turned into this incredible resource for me where six months later. 

Brandon: 

I would actually have this section in the email that would say, hey, here’s my asks. 

Brandon: 

I’m trying to figure out how you, um, Pitch businesses for partnership. 

Brandon: 

I don’t know the first thing about this. 

Brandon: 

I’m not going to this conference and I’m trying, so, um, anybody here know about this, you know, and at this point they’re probably like 70, 80 people in this lesson to someone would respond and say, yeah, I know something about this. 

Brandon: 

You know, it was great. 

Brandon: 

I had built up this list of just like people who cared about me and I didn’t even know all the ways they could help me, but I was just like, hey, here’s what I need help with. 

Brandon: 

That’s a great too. 

Brandon: 

Oh my gosh, it was amazing. 

Brandon: 

I mean, I really just stumbled into it honestly, right? 

Brandon: 

Because that’s not how intended to use it, you know, this. 

Brandon: 

But um, yeah, it was great. 

Brandon: 

And so I just have these asks every time and people reach out. 

Brandon: 

Um, so yeah, so I guess I’ll say that about kind of the like, you know, be open minded about, you know, where that support is going to put yourself out there. 

Brandon: 

You never know. 

Brandon: 

You never know. 

Brandon: 

You really don’t is too, I think, uh, you know, yes for yourself other, but I think also be, no, I think I think also be really tactical to, about who you’re going to, who, um, is really going to help you take your pitch from V the V two or V three to, you know, V six, there were, there was a, there was a short list, I mean, yes, I would pay, I was definitely paying attention the entire time. 

Brandon: 

Um two, there were always a couple of people who really stepped up, really stepped up and went above and beyond to help, to help. 

Brandon: 

And you were one of them, you know, you were definitely one of them and um, so don’t, don’t, don’t waste that, you know, like make it take, like take advantage of that, you know, you Hughes Brandon, but you, you helped us get really whipped into shape, right and, and you know me, like I, I came to your time and time again for advice um, when you find those people who are willing to step on a limb and help you out. 

Brandon: 

Um you know, don’t, don’t don’t miss the opportunity. 

Amelia: 

Yeah, I think that’s a good, good lesson. 

Brandon: 

And for all the listeners, I did offer an Amelia Did run it like a show like, Hey, I need to meet you at 3:00 on Saturday, can we do that?

Brandon:

Brandon: 

And I think you have a great product and you know, when I think about it, it goes back to the very origins of our of of the civilizations of the world earth. 

Brandon: 

It is, you know, stories are passed on by by telling them and recording them and modern technology has allowed us to do that in people’s own voice. 

Brandon: 

And I think there’s humans and stories there, that’s the essence of humanity. 

Brandon: 

It’s what we’re doing right now. 

Brandon: 

Right? 

Brandon: 

Yeah. 

Brandon: 

We just told your state right now where that story um and people will benefit from it from a really long for a really long time and and for many ways is that, you know, the stories reveal the things that we don’t think or or help the stories that we’ve told in our own head may or may not actually be true. 

Brandon: 

Um so that is the essence of communication of mankind. 

Brandon: 

So you are right there at the least common denominator. 

Brandon: 

So that’s exciting you so much.
