Common Founder Issue
This is the link that I share most with new startup founders. Many new founders worry about people stealing their ideas. But even once they get past this notion, it takes a while to truly appreciate (and be able to mentally accept) feedback from other people. And even once that happens, being able to reconcile their strong opinions with other (sometimes opposite) feedback is one of the major things that makes starting anything so difficult.
At this point in the podcast the host is asking Reid (the founder of LinkedIn) about what made LinkedIn so viral.
