build something

“If you are going to build something, you have to be able to think about all aspects of the business, you have to understand that if you build a product, you then have to market it, you have to know how the economics work, how users respond to it, and you have to be able to motivate a team to build and sell it….

“I fundamentally believe that we should always challenge ourselves to build a better business on a daily basis, because if we don’t, someone else will.”

Mathew Smith, in Getting to Here in Product Management
