The March issue of Yes! Magazine has been released, and it includes my story on Second City alumna and SNL Weekend Update writer Katie Rich.

Thanks to Katie, who was more than accommodating, as well as her agent, her manager and the folks at Second City in Chicago, all of whom were quite helpful.

Here’s a link to a PDF version of the story.

Basically, a paywall can work if:

  1. The product is a niche product.
  2. The market isn’t price sensitive.
