Opening the Rework Mailbag, Part 1

It’s our first mailbag episode! Jason Fried and DHH answer listener questions on topics like the role of luck and timing in starting Basecamp; how they approach pricing (spoiler: It’s something called “ass pricing”); hiring in the early stages of a business; and more.

We’ll have Part 2 with even more questions next week, so be sure to subscribe to Rework via Apple Podcasts, Google Play Music, or your favorite podcatcher so you don’t miss it.

If you have a question for Jason or David to tackle on a future mailbag episode, leave us a message at 708–628–7850. We’re also collecting stories about meetings for a future episode. I heard from someone whose CEO held monthly 8-hour Skype meetings. Yes, they were eight hours long (with only two breaks under 20 minutes each) and consisted of him reading aloud some Google Docs. Do you have a similar story? Or—shudder—one that tops a recurring 8-hour Skype call? Call us or send an email to hello@rework.fm.
