    I want to bring our current prototype to the beta stage and get the first paying users. This involves developing a few key features, customer interviews and driving more traffic to the site once on Beta.


    • Finished reading "Lean Startup"
    • Battle some back pain.


    • Figure out how to implement the back end part of one of the features required to launch the beta.
    • Implement some minor updates on the backend.

    KUDOS @Davey for the payload - text-to-speech work

      Thanks! Learning from my lesson to not neglect quality and quantity when it comes to my pipeline.

      Why ads? Have you tried less expensive channels to test and validate the candidates' interview problem?
