  15. 15. Understand what people want • People don’t want to buy a smart TV. They want to watch Netflix without having to plug in an additional console. • People don’t want to buy cooking books. They want to invite their friends and relatives to dinner and have a good time. • People don’t want to buy a scuba diving course. They want to go out and dive with cool fish and share it on social media!
