This week, Jon and Justin talk about new developments with Transistor: We've taken over $100,000 in funding. Details on who we took money from, why we took it, and what we'll use it for. We're going to use this money to pay ourselves, pay for infrastructure, and grow the business. We harken back to July of 2018 (right before our official launch), when Justin was stressed about money. ★ Thanks to our sponsors: ProfitWell gives you free subscription metrics for your SaaS.
