#212: Joe’s Therapy Session


Today we talk about the current state of affairs of Joe’s different business ventures. Joe tells us about Bombing Brain’s plans to convert his bread-and-butter app to a subscription model, future plans for their up and coming app Setlists, and some planned features that are designed to encourage word of mouth sharing. Joe also shares some of the details of how he’s balancing his product work with his personal contract work, as well as some of the strategies that he’s using to grow his contract business and keep his client pipeline full.
