In the days and weeks ahead, we plan to catch up with our pilot testers to see they are coming along with the activities we discussed (we found each tester needed to do slightly different things to get the ball rolling for setting up their money-generating endeavour).
We have already been learning valuable insights for the future of the platform and our mentoring of members. Which is, after all, the reason we are conducting the pilot test.
This is building our confidence to think of launching the platform as a paid service. We will reflect on whether we need to raise additional funds and conduct additional work (such as developing the online business courses) prior to launching.
