Or, is it from finding a solution to an issue you’ve experienced yourself? There’s no right or wrong answers, peers. However, for this week’s guest, Lynn Greenberg, it was through moving to a new city and starting from scratch that led her to found the Pivt app in 2019.
In this episode of Peers2Peers, powered by Shopify, Lynn shares how her app pivoted from its original use, why she had to adapt when big investors came knocking, and how entrepreneurship can be the way to make a dent in the world.
There’s a saying, peers. ‘You don’t need everyone to love you, just a few good people.’ The same can be said for entrepreneurship. Maybe not everyone will love your product or service, but if a handful of customers do (and they keep coming back and spreading the word), then you can build something truly great.

In today’s episode of Peers2Peers, Lynn shares why you can never be too close to your customer, how to get narrow before expanding, and why, if you build something that a small portion love, you can help to solve a problem.
