  1. Also had that question before about how BrainQuicken was built.

    Chat w/ TF @ Princeton (3:20 – 13:17). He briefly gives background on BrainQuicken which he considered failing until it was repositioned from “improve your memory” to “non-stimulant pre-workout product for athletes.”His market focus shifted because of feedback from his true customers, competitive athletes. He attributes that change in messaging as the reason for sales taking off.

    Don’t remember if that was specified in the book.
