Has anyone made a
dashboard pulls sales and traffic data into a shareable image/card for Twitter?
This HAS to exist already, right?

With my newest project, I've actually skipped the naming altogether. Just using a phrase that describes exactly what we do!

I need to follow more people on Twitter.
Who are some
people you recommend?

I'm launching that soon -- I think Monday. But I'm doing it differently --
. Because I have something to show for myself, dangit!
And I really do want to "give back." ~100 people have asked me over the past years with one question:
How do I start my own business?

I'm starting to share more of my story.
How I founded & grew a 7-figure company working mostly alone since 2016.
First hurdle: Some people literally won't believe me.
Wish I'd been more open about this process as it happened.
wasn't a thing in 2016.

This feels wrong.
But I'm going to share my new project before it's done.
Isn't that what
is all about?
I'm more excited about this than anything I've done before. It's the culmination of 6 YEARS working with early-stage founders to help validate product ideas.

So I've narrowed down possible URLs for my new project to two.

(One more thing -- HUGE thanks to the
community for encouraging me to share more about my experience. I'm launching something new soon, and going to try this
thing this time around!)

It's been a crazy journey.
I've made a TON of mistakes (and I still do).
But I really believe I've learned more in 5 years than many people learn in 20.
Unfortunately I just never shared any of this along the way.
wasn't really a thing when I launched.

Who are the best

I'm a big
fan, and I have tons of
connections building in public.
But who's someone I canNOT afford to miss?

I've worked mostly alone since 2016, building a market research brand that's done 7-figures of revenue.
Definitely missed out on a big opportunity to
This time will be different. I'm launching something new, and I'm ALL about transparency & continuous feedback.
October 4, 2021 11:16am
My only problem with
is that I'm too busy building to make time for the "in public" part!
Any tools out there that automate this process? Auto-generated updates pulling from Google Analytics, Google Ads, CRM, and Stripe?

thing a try...
I formally launched
on Feb 1.
Pushed a HUGE update just a few days later, once it became apparent that users expected a ton more handholding through the process. I had this on the backburner, but obviously needed to happen ASAP
