The People (Tokens) of Business Toybox

Tokens in Business Toybox are very special. They were designed with the intent to take the common sticky-note and make it much better. Sticky-notes are good at capturing quick thoughts, but they’re not particularly great at it. They’re great for writing little reminders for yourself and attaching them in a place that you walk past every day, but I wasn’t convinced they were great at capturing ideas. This is important, because people use sticky-notes and paper canvases a lot to create business models for their next big thing(s).

Putting Together the Core

Let’s begin by pointing out that you may have noticed some of the blog posts have gone missing. Don’t worry, they’re still here, we just moved them to a special archive section of the site. You can find them right here. That answers the question of where the old blog posts went, but it doesn’t answer the question of why we moved them there. It’s a hard thing building a thing like Business Toybox.
