2. The problem the speaker is facing is related to the interchangeability of the balance sheet and cash flows sections, specifically in investing activities.
3. The speaker is trying to figure out how to generate a JSON structure that allows for more flexibility in creating line items for investing activities, so users can input their own formulas for changes.

5. The speaker mentioned the concept of finding early adopters and focusing on their pain points to make necessary improvements to the product.
6. The discussion also touched on data preservation and the challenges of refactoring. The speaker expressed concerns about the difficulties of preserving data while making changes to the system structure.
