First customer interview

Allison Seboldt @asebold

I was absolutely dreading this but it ended up being really fun. I scheduled it for a half hour, but we easily could have talked for much longer. This individual was a previous customer from my MVP and participated in the closed alpha for Fantasy Congress 2.0. I tried to focus less on Fantasy Congress and more about the problems it could potentially solve for her. The customer was very supportive of this project and gave me lots of great insight. I'm looking forward to my second customer interview tomorrow.
