“It’s not actually about you as the founder; it’s about the person you’re talking with. And if it’s not about them, they don’t really care. You know, people don’t care that you’ve built a business. They care if your business can help them. ” (4:42)
“So in a clean message, if we always start with the listener, the way we would structure it is something like, for people who need ‘x’, we do ‘y’. ” (6:37)
“When people build a really good clean messaging canvas, they use it in every media interview they do, every sales call they do, in their blog post, their social media, and becomes really that messaging framework for how they talk about their business going forward.” (8:30)
“Building a startup or building a business is pretty easy. It’s like a lemonade stand, right? Create something that people want, sell it for more than it cost to make, and then do that over and over again.” (11:18)
