“Some things just take time to build. Look at Figma and Notion. Took years to build the product first, before seeing the traction taking off.”

It’s a refreshing reminder, when the world can’t have enough hackathon-style products built in 2 weeks on GPT API.
Thousands of projects popping up isn’t a bad thing at all – that’s how the mobile apps ecosystem started as well. But it’s a long way from a single product to reaching $100M+ ARR. Regardless of how easy it is to build a product now, the world still needs entrepreneurs dedicated to a single mission and ready to put in many years of hard work.
