The Founder's Manual

Many aspects of being a Founder, creating a product, and building a company are counter-intuitive. In The Founder's Manual, Ryan Frederick, provides insights into how to deal with them including:

  • Founders have to run to the fire, not away from it.
  • Scale doesn't matter until a small number of customers love what you are doing.
  • You can't solve a problem you don't understand at an expert level.
  • Customer Product Fit is better than Product Market Fit and why.
