Lightning Talk by Ken Collins (@metaskils) on our 757rb marketing efforts
 
Introductions
 
Questions:
 
1) How do you develop your business model? What type of research do you do? How do you choose your market(s)?
 
2) Have you used crowd sourced funding (i.e. Kickstarter, etc.)? If so, how well has it worked?
 
3) What's the best way to create a balance when you're transitioning from client work or full time job to working on a product?
 
4) True or false?: Client work is a rite of passage or necessary evil to gain the knowledge/experience/authority needed to launch a product.
 
5) Can you build a business in the App Store?
 
6) How do you handle the sadness that results from working on a product making no money, when you could be consulting or woking full time for much more?
 
7) What sucks about trying to sell products? Is there anything that's not so great about selling products (vs. consulting or a full time gig)?
