Business Model Canvas - If you are developing a new business, many of the assumptions underlying your business may prove incorrect. Perhaps you are not targeting the best type of customer, maybe the product you are offering is not something your customers are willing to pay for, or possibly you have not yet found the best sales channels and marketing strategies. Steve Blank and Alexander Osterwalder designed the Business Model Canvas to help start-ups and major corporations design experiments to rapidly test and validate new ideas. Following their methodology can help you create a sustainable business faster and at lower cost. You can learn about developing business model canvases from these videos, by reading this book, or by taking this online course.
BlueCloud Select - After making over $500,000 on apps, Carter Thomas started a private group for app developers.

The Facebook group is perhaps the most valuable resource because it is an opportunity to network with other serious-minded developers. You can use the Facebook group to learn from other developers by contributing to discussions about their projects, and you can request feedback about your projects.
