Which is why this guide from Version One (VC) is particularly helpful. A very detailed guide on managing the different stages of growth at a marketplace - hope you find it useful!

Aggy's Pick
I’m going to go out on a limb and say that if you take the nugget(s) from this article and apply them - they can change your life.
We all want the same things - financial security and independence, comfort, peace of mind, a fulfilling set of relationships, …. and yet, we’re all doing SO many different things and a lot of those things always seem distant.
What if, instead of ‘What do you want?’ you answerered 'What are you willing to struggle for, to go through pain for?’ ….
And so on. It opened my mind up to a very different way of vieweing the world and my choices therein - and I think it can do the same for you.
