Today we talk about juggling all the different responsibilities that we have to balance as indies. We discuss the challenges of balancing different roles (such as development, design, and QA) within a project, as well as the challenges of balancing different responsibilities within a business (product, contracting, marketing, and more). We share some of the challenges we face, as well as our own methods for prioritizing our work.
