Episode 446: It’s A Fresh Start

Manton and Daniel kick off the new year after taking some time off. Daniel talks about giving himself permission to work on wrapping up loose ends with his own various apps while waiting for the next big inspiration. Manton talks about doing new work with Jon Hays and taking the foot off the pedal slightly with Micro.blog over the holidays. Finally, they compare notes about applying for Apple’s Small Business Program, and discuss the potential downsides of applying if you don’t really need to.
