After launching a new thing—or an update to a thing—Jelly likes to stop, look back at the process, and evaluate how things went. For him, it involves considering the answers to some key questions, and he decides that it’s worth forcing Alice and Curtis through this process. Together, they discuss recent launches, how they went, and what they feel could have gone better… or worse.
Running a successful business is hard, and with the myriad of decisions that you make, it’s also difficult to do so in an ethical way. Alice, Curtis, and Jelly look back at the decisions they’ve made in trying to run ethical businesses, how they’ve worked out long term, and whether they’ve been the right choices in the long term.
Alice is the co-creator of Gus on the Go, a series of language learning apps for young kids. She focuses on developing educational content, business development and devising a marketing strategy on an indie budget.
In a former life (i.e. pre-kids), Alice and her husband used to run a fun food photography blog: eataduckimust.com. These days, they dream of raising their boys to be globe-trotting polyglots… but will also just settle for them becoming adventurous eaters.
