Over the years we’ve found we are having the same conversations over and over with clients and potential clients; so we put our knowledge and experience together in an ebook for product...


Recently Marty was on a panel at Boulder Startup Week talking about hiring from the point of view of employers. But many of the audience members said they were actually searching for a job.
