Jon and Justin share some honest updates about as they continue to build their SaaS (Transistor.fm):

  • Jon asks: "how do you prioritize with limited resources?"
  • "Working on something for an hour only isn’t really feasible. it takes about 20 minutes just to back into it."
  • Justin is thinking about "the myth of the niche market"
  • This latest revenue update has Jon and Justin scared. 😱
