  28. 28. Pantheon.io And do you even want to? ● Are you good at all these areas or should you make a referral? ● Are you set up to handle hosting or should you rely on a partner company?
  29. 29. Pantheon.io “Yes, I can do that.” Vs. “Yes, I could do that, but only for a price.” Never give away your time
