I can't even get my family to use stuff I've built unless it really truly absolutely solves their problem and it is blatantly obvious without explanation.

We can turn that into a great advice for founders and developers who want to bring a product to market:

If you can't even convince your own family, how are you going to convince a complete stranger?

I have to admit that I should think of that more often myself, too 😁
