When asking for feedback on a program or product, the question isn’t whether someone ‘likes it’ or thinks it’s a ‘good idea.’ The question is, would they actually invest in it? Would they be willing to spend their time or their money on what you’re creating?

Anyone can say they ‘like’ what you’re building — maybe they want to make you feel good, or they sincerely think it may be helpful for someone else. But value isn’t based on whether something is liked. It’s based on what others would actually give up in order to have it.

Once you find people that would actually be willing to give their time or money for what you’re creating, you know you’re creating something of real value.
