> Avoid frameworks like Meteor, React etc. they're a rabbit hole that will paralyze you from shipping and getting to revenue.

I agree with the part where you say to avoid tools that don't paralyze you from shipping and getting revenue. On the other hand, I think that if someone is fast and productive with React or Meteor, that is the tool he/she should be using to build anything.

Yes, absolutely. Always use whatever is fastest for you.

I would also like to add that you should get to mvp as fast as possible so that you can charge for whatever you've built.

I think a lot of devs focus too much on coding and not enough on revenue. Make sure the feature you're adding has value, or else you're just wasting your time.

I also made the mistake of using the project as an opportunity to learn new technologies which is dangerous because it can eat into the time it takes to ship.

Agreed, I've done that too before : )
