Today’s lesson comes from Steve Huffman, founder of Reddit.
“If you’re a startup, if you haven’t built anything yet, you’re not Apple. You don’t have anything to gain from being secret.

The goal before you build something is sign people up to your idea. Get investors interested, get developers and business guys interested in working with you…if you’re just getting started, nothing’s a secret.”
