This week, a reader question prompts us to talk about whether or not “branching out” into new fields, new talents, is worthwhile for indie developers. Can you afford to spend time working on new skills when you barely have enough time to finish your current tasks? Can you afford to stand still as technologies change? Is there a middle ground to find between jack of all trades and master of only one? This is one of the primary struggles for any small business owner. We discuss how we manage our time to continue growing, which new fields we are trying to explore, and how we think basic business skills may be the most valuable and essential things to learn for anyone trying to make a living in the App Store.
