Why we stopped sharing our revenue numbers
Should you be an "open startup?"
Jon and Justin talk about:
- New albums from DJ Shadow and Beck
- Why we aren't sharing our revenue metrics publicly anymore
- "Sometimes, you can worry more about your public image, more than actually focusing on the problem in a safe place."
- Why did Buffer stop sharing their revenue numbers?
- Three questions we ask:
- Who is this for?
- What is it for?
- How will we evaluate success?
- New podcast analytics features
- "The numbers on their own don't really mean anything."
