Managing a dev team as a non tech founder
@tannermullen wow - I was going to say exactly the same thing! It's so hard - for me it was scoping the work, finding people, trying not to get ripped off, and then working through all the issues with what's been done!

@maxwellcdavis yeah man. For me it was the risk of someone having the keys to everything and me not knowing what was going on.

@tannermullen @maxwellcdavis Definitely. And as you work with them it's mandatory to try to get as much tech knowledge you can. Talking to a lot of devs doing the same thing and asking key questions helps with that a lot.

@price2spy Hoh boy this is a tough one. It's hard to find what to talk about as well that's not already said.
@between_team I think its more a case of writing what others have said better. Came across an interesting fact yesterday that for every 1 content creator there are 100 consumers. There's a god chance not all 100 have came across whats 'already been said.'
