This is a thing that has held me back over and over again.
As an introvert and developer, my natural bent is to build something quietly at home and never get out and talk to my target audience (even virtually).
While I believe that the best way forward and to build something that actually solves peoples problems, I find fear coming up over and over.
I easily fall into thinking "If you build it, they will come" ... mostly as a delusion—I know it's horribly wrong but it's easier to believe than get over my fear.
Enough about me, a couple things I'd love to hear from this community:
If you're not like me, how do you think about talking to prospects?
If you used to be like me, what helped you change?
_If you want to commiserate, that's cool too—hopefully we'll both learn something from the thread. :)
