When you get your first 5 or 10 customers, don’t focus on getting the next 10. First focus on working with those 5. Get their feedback, make things better, improve, and, only then, continue to grow.

To me, that’s a recipe for ‚viral growth.‘ You create that invisible stealth sales force in the form of your direct customers.
