In one of our client call yesterday. I spoke my truth about how we are not the expert in the field however we want to build our community. So that the clients and others in the space can collaborate with each other. To which our client suggested to get few members to speak for 10 minutes and create a show around it. The recording can be used by others and we only play the role of facilitator.
It made my task easy to find only 1 person because I already know 1 team who would be interested in this discussion. It gives us advantage to do less and create more value for the community.
The longer something takes, The less likely it is that you’re going to finish it. So ask yourself “What can we do in two weeks?” And then do it.
