Tara Hunt recently shared a post-mortem on her product baby, Buyosphere. (Sorry, Tara, we know that feeling well.)

There’s a lot of wisdom that comes from experience. She has it on the client side and as a founder. And no matter how much we know these things, as a founder you can often find yourself taking shortcuts or thinking too broadly to be effective.

Here are Tara’s great tips for remaining focused:

1. Don’t get distracted raising money if you don’t absolutely need it.
2. Focus on one market.
3. Immerse yourself in that market, learn everything about them, and how you can best serve them with your product.
4. Build your product in public,

Our advice: listen to Tara.
