“When you start a business, you think about the limitless opportunities of the connected world in 2018. We went too wide early on and our message did not resonate with anyone. We thought every business could be our customer. I wish we would have niched down until it hurt. One product, to one target customer, in one vertical market, until we gained enough traction to add on. No regrets but that is how we will do it next time.” — Thanks to Matt Vaadi, CEO of ERG Payroll & HR, for providing his “What I Wish I Knew Then” wisdom for the latest edition of the Southern Startup Report.

“In the startup universe, there is no such thing as perfect.

I’m an attorney; law is a precise art, and that is the mindset I brought to GotSpot. I spent months trying to get everything on the platform just right before it hit me that building a startup is all about continuous improvement — “just right” doesn’t exist. So I stopped asking “is this exactly how I want it?” and started asking “is it getting better with each iteration?” That’s my new metric for success.” ~ Reda M. Hicks, Co-Founder and CEO of @gotspotinc, Houston, TX
