The “freemium” model is everywhere now. And it makes sense! Consumers are picky, more wary than ever, and in need of more proof before opening their wallets. But what if freemium isn’t feasible for you? Giving away your product or service is pretty costly, after all (we know — our software platform offers a free plan). If you’re not yet at a point …

Today, we break down exactly how to plot your debut…

What’s the point of starting a business? Is it to earn money, or what money buys? Probably the latter. And the most important, valuable thing money can buy isn’t real estate or caviar — it’s time.
