  • What is your exit plan?
  • What are the 3 biggest obstacles keeping you from your goals?

Excercises:

  • The number of skins you develop per month should be based on what you and your team are capable of and the ROI of the project.

  • Write down the 3 biggest concerns and barriers you have with skinning apps (Ex: Never developed an app before, dont know how to systematize, don't have a trusted developer that can handle this workload.)
