60 Day Challenge – takeaways from failure

Asking the right questions

One of the things we’re doing with Bormal right now is trying to narrow down the problem or problems we’re trying to solve.

Day 10 Commentary

It’s 1/6th of the way into our 60 day challenge to get 2 million active users. We’re doing meh. I was hoping to get 2500 users by the end of the day, and that looks like it might be quite a hard task. We’re only at 1215 users as of last night, so we’ll haveContinue reading “Day 10 Commentary”
