Finally I'm not working on Polygloss by myself anymore, which is very refreshing. A friend of mine introduced me to Doug, a UX UI designer who is looking to expand their portfolio and offered me some help. At this stage, this collaboration is incredibly useful and I'm really excited to see what will come next. This collaboration will have deep impact on the product, but it's also nice to have someone else to bounce ideas with. It almost feels like a real company now!
I have been reading a lot on ways of modeling this project without external funding, and shared ownership might be one of them. It could take a long time for me to figure out which model I am most comfortable with, but reading articles like this has been helpful. https://www.alternativeownershipadvisors.com/blog/compare-and-contrast
I'm very curious to hear how other people did their first steps of growing their teams and how did that go!
