Have a 5+ person startup and want 2022 to be your worst year ever?
Here are 18 things you should do to guarantee your startup leaves 2022 weaker than when you started.
1) Keep the high-performing a**hole on your team.
You've got a small team and 1 of them is an epic jerk. But he's really good at his job.
He'll get better. And he's just that important.
Plus, your other teammates don't have other options in this job market.
2) It's all about product-led growth so ensure you have that.
It used to be about gamification, freemium, or whatever.
But if you don't have PLG, are you even doing a startup?
See what folks are saying is the way to grow a startup.
And do it ASAP!
Outsource your thinking to others.
3) Don't talk to customers or users.
You have a vision.
Stick to it.
