What's your safety net if your startup doesn't work out or did you go all-in without one?

#buildinpublic
Say hello if you’re a solo startup founder 👋 

How are you balancing building vs. marketing?

#buildinpublic
There are loads of logical reasons why my startup will fail.

That’s ok, I’m having fun! 😎

#buildinpublic
Obsessed with building, I totally underestimated the importance of marketing.

It's not that building a product isn't important.

It's that if there's no route to finding users it's game over. 💀

Indiehackers should be thinking about distribution from day 1.

#buildinpublic
Goal of the week:

organise everything I've dumped into @NotionHQ so I can hit the ground running when the summer ends

3 big buckets:

- Product dev
- Marketing
- Operations

Then I have a ton of sub-pages under each.

Organisation really helps me focus 🖇

#buildinpublic
It's easy to be promiscuous with startup ideas 💋

Buy domain names that'll never be used 🛒

Talk big but jump ship when the next fad comes to town 📈

It's hard to stick with 1 product, building and marketing day in day out

But focus yields 🙌 results

#nocode #buildinpublic
After a difficult week I'm seeing light at the end of the tunnel. Some reflections:

Don't buy into emotions as if they're permanent 💨

Highs and lows are part of dreaming big

If you're not having fun on the journey, you won't find it at the destination. ✨

What's the most important factor in startup success?

1) build a product that solves a critical problem for an underserved niche
2) team, execution, grind
3) marketing, distribution, growth
4) ↑ luck surface area

#buildinpublic
Doubtful me: failing today! 😔

Reflective me: wait a minute, I’ve accomplished tons over the last year, keep going. 🧗🏻‍♂️ #buildinpublic
One of the unexpected benefits of the Twitter startup community:

when you're feeling down from a tough week, seeing everyone else show up to overcome their challenges lifts you back up. ✨

#buildinpublic
If your startup fails and you get to choose any other job in the world, what would you do?

I'd be an astronaut. 🪐
