I think the same should apply to Google as a search engine. I’ve recently tried ecosia.org and it works fine, and now it’s my main search engine on my personal machine. Besides, they claim that they combat global warming by allocating some of their revenue to planting trees and relate it directly to your number of searches. So plus plus ;)
So R — as in retained — are users who were traceable up to the point of examination but churned afterwards before the next point of examination, e.g. R8 are users who were visible up to day 8 but were no longer using the app at day 14. They may or may have not churned on days 9, 10, 11, 12 or 13.
It is inaccurate to attribute the disappearance of the mini skirts to the Gulf returnees alone.

Remember, I’m saying cash, not profit. You might be operating at loss, but you still have cash coming in.
Thank you. My motivation is to share my experience and knowledge, in order to be able to obtain more. Also, to shatter the myths and cut the crap as you’ve eloquently said.
My bias is to the side of the entrepreneur, as this is who I am and this is how I see things. Bias is no sin, it is a fact of life, and I’ve highlighted…

Although almost any 7amada can start a services company, it takes very specific people with specific skills to scale it up.
