We’re joined today by Brit Young, now of New Relic, who shares her story of going indie. Brit’s story is particularly interesting because in the midst of running a successful consulting business, she and her partner had the realization that a consulting business wasn’t what they really wanted. So they closed their startup, took a sabbatical, and took stock of their lives. They returned from their sabbatical recharged, and ready to go in new directions in order to follow their true passions. Listen as Brit shares the highs and lows of running a business, hiring employees, and competing in the Mac App Store.
