5 things I learned when Google let me work at a startup for 2 weeks…

1. Know your first user really well

  1. “mental-health curious”
  2. “over-spillers”
  3. “mindful self developers”
Audience segmentation is essential

2. Always try to measure your ROI

3. Focus is a virtue

4. Document and test: Docs & Sheets > Decks

5. Do things that don’t scale
