Getting real: sharing our founder struggles

It's a struggle when you're bootstrapping, but you're not yet full-time. Also: Spotify buying Gimlet for $200 million?

In this episode:
  • Jon and Justin open up about the challenges of bootstrapping "on the side." 
  • How things have gotten harder (in some ways) now that we have customers.
  • Jon is finding it hard to juggle his day job, and getting time to build the "big features."
  • Justin flip-flips back and forth about investment. Would investors and advisors meddle too much?
  • We also discuss the Spotify rumors: buying Gimlet for $200 - $230 million?
  • Also, a theory about why Apple should have made Gimlet an offer.
