036. When to Quit

We're going to step away from the podcast, but the episodes, website, and social media accounts will remain.

Reach out if you have questions or want to say hi, and thanks for listening!

What led us to this decision...

  • Well first, why did we start?
    • We wanted to talk about things we're interested in
    • We wanted practical tips, not the productivity trap
    • We were feeling the courage to experiment
  • What decisions made us want to stop?
    • Growth was plateauing
    • We did the exercises in Traction by Gabriel Wineberg
    • Learned that growth would require more time and money
    • We were already constrained by both
    • We both want to focus on fewer initiatives in 2020
