Halbe Katoffl on Steady
“When I started thinking about my own podcast, financing was important to me. I didn’t want to podcast myself into bankruptcy with ‘Halbe Katoffl’. Developing a business model was not my primary goal, but a necessary part of keeping the project alive in the long-run. The fascinating thing about the membership model: It works.”
