After years running a company based on a consumer product, Steve made the decision to switch to a business-focused product in Feature Upvote, and he's never looked back. We explore the implications of legal changes having the ability to wipe out 55% of your customer base after the United States changed the laws around online gambling.

We compare the differences between Steve's B2C and B2B experiences, the ability to make a healthy living working 6 hours a day but making you sure you're consistent and show up every day. We also discuss the value of enlisting the services of outside experts like a system administrator as soon as you can afford them.

We also touch on the challenges of managing spam and fraud as a business grows and becomes increasingly visible and the importance of thinking up front about what kind of business you want and the type of customers you want to serve.
