 In this episode, we talk about how bootstrappers can win against companies that have raised massive amounts of money.

Full topic list:
  • We give an update on the compensation negotiations we discussed last episode. We've agreed on terms for Tyler to work for Rick on LegUp Benefits!
  • Rick had his first annual offsite and shares a ton of great learnings.
  • LACRM had a great month in February. There was absolutely nothing to learn from it.
  • LACRM's major redesign is getting closer.
  • Rick has streamlined bookkeeping and other financial tasks to save time.
  • Tyler is thinking through when it makes sense to do custom work for a large client.
  • We tackle a listener question: How do bootstrapped companies compete with funded competitors.
