Fixing the core problem

There are so many niches these days. But do they really fix their core problem?

Let me give you an example of a business model.

Very few people want to be lonely, but also very few people want to meet strangers.

This is a problem. And if you have been to any networking event, you will definitively know that there are very real reasons why people feel anxious.

Meeting new people can be exciting or incredibly frustrating.

So instead, the companies created a cure called alcohol.

But this is not really a cure. Many people overuse and abuse with this substance, just because of stress or social pressure.

Did alcohol solve the issue of meeting people or made the things worse? If you look at the statistics of all the alcohol abuse, it definitively didn’t help a lot.

Did Instagram solve the problem of being more connected with people using pictures?

Again, no, it just created more social media addiction.

When you create a business, look for a way to solve the core problem first, because we definitely need more businesses like that!

To forget is the ultimate sign of lack of focus. You need to focus on what you do to be able to achieve the next level.

Twitter is a dead long live twitter

 Corporate rebranding takes time. It is carefully calibrated and represents the new directions of the company. Unless it is Twitter. Then the change can happen in a matter of a week. The domain pointed yesterday to a page with one character “X”. Today it redirects to the twitter domain and soon we might see the dead of the bird and the birth of the symbol “X”. This change will be followed carefully and we can all learn from the mistakes Elon Musk will do during this transition. He already is very famous with the mistakes he did during his first weeks in the company. Can the company survive such a transformation is another open question? There are already some competitors like Mastodon and Instagram very own Threads. But the vision of Elon Musk is to turn this app more like WeChat, the Chinese mega app that combines many features. The issue with such a combination of too many businesses and too many regulations might play a crucial role in the downfall of the company. Many times s
