In this episode of "Fund Stuff," Andrew Pierno pulls insights from an unlikely source—pickleball—to shed light on the grinding nature of business. Even when your company isn't making TechCrunch headlines or going viral on Product Hunt, Andrew argues that the real work happens during what he calls "peace time." It's all about sticking to the grind, focusing on metrics that matter, and never letting off the gas.
Facing Equally Skilled Players: Just like in pickleball, your business often competes with others who have no obvious weaknesses. The reality is you're in for a grind.
Metrics Matter: Peace time is when you focus on core KPIs. Forget the vanity metrics; focus on what truly propels your business forward.
Routine is Your Ally: Maintaining a steady pace and routine is essential, even when it feels like you're just watching paint dry.
Tune in to learn why you shouldn't let "peace time" lull you into complacency and how focusing on the grind now can pave the way for future success.
