Don’t let your great idea be canned before it even has a chance. Learn strategies to address phrases like “we don’t have the budget for that” or “I can’t let you take time away from your beat.” From finding developers who can work with you on a budget, to restructuring your project management, to gaining buy-in from higher-ups and finding revenue opportunities, we’ll discuss creative solutions for making it work without vast resources.
