1. The Value of Measuring. You'll never know the ROI of the new project you're working on if your team hasn't established how you'll measure success or failure. 2. Don't Skip the Books. Since the day we launched, it was very important for Ticket Cake to have a good procedure for recording cash flow. Figure out your system before you have to scramble. 3. Ask For Help. There have been many times where we needed outside help for services, feature development, and honest feedback. Constantly be looking for ways others can help fill the gaps you have.
