Quality Transcends Macro Headwinds

I chatted today with a friend who’s in a different industry. I enjoy talking to people outside of start-ups and tech for a different perspective. Our conversation naturally touched on the current macro state. He shared something interesting: in his industry there’s always demand for quality, regardless of what’s going on in the world. People putting out a quality product aren’t affected by the macro environment.

My buddy makes a great point that founders should be mindful of. If you’re solving a problem with a quality product that creates value for customers, customer demand will be there. And with authentic customer demand comes the potential to build a large company—you will be able to get capital from investors to scale.

Focus on quality and things will likely play out in your favor, even in a questionable macro environment.
