This is a fantastic conversation. Speaking from my own experience with DailyDigital, figuring out when to transform from a chicken to a pig is all about timing. Startup success or failure can hinge upon taking the time make sure your ideas are valid, product market fit exists and the marketplace is ready. Become a pig too early, without the right pieces in place, is recipe for failure. At the same time, being unwilling to get out of the hen house and dive into the pig pen when the time is right probably means you don't have the confidence or passion to succeed anyways. Unfortunately there doesn't seem to be a handbook for getting the timing right, but plenty of perspective on chickens and pigs. Thanks for the insights and encouragement to be a pig (never thought I'd say that).
