Show Notes

Jordan and Brian are back with updates (even if they’re not so great).

Brain updates us on the developments (or lack thereof) with his developer and how communication issues have played a part in the lack of progress. He also talks about how to move forward from these issues and how he has learned from this experience.

Jordan talks about the topic of burnout, how he ignored the signs, how it manifested, and the Square integration. He also talks about the vulnerability and the emotional layer of being a business owner. Jordan covers the stress levels involved in the product.
