  1. Great insights, I appreciate Sean’s point of view and love the idea of overlap. It can be challenging to figure out how to do ‘both’ at the same time. Similar to scaling your business, and transitioning business models while maintaining profit margins. Good to have a mentor or group of mentors who have experience to guide you through the transition. Thanks!
