Cash is like oxygen to a business. Without it, you start suffocating fast. #bootstrapping is great, but you can't survive, let alone thrive, without some form of cash in the bank.

I was looking previously for some interesting accounts about #bootstrapping and #buildinpublic and found very few women founders. Do you happen to know someone to follow?

Read this on @crunchbase today "Tech Layoffs And Hiring Freezes Appear To Accelerate"

Meanwhile I'm over here hiring my first paid roles after years of collaborations and all star interns/volunteers.

What a time to be a bootstrapped founder!

You may be asking why a competitor why I should do it and not them.

Ask them if they know why the competition failed.

I do.

(P.s. did you know Uber tried this too? And I'm doing it with 0 financial backing.)

It doesn't seem like a big deal until you factor in that Apple has sold a billion devices and you realize that's a really sizable market.

Also, that data reported by Apple has "some massaging" that's been done.

"Target settings" is a fancy way of saying which version of iOS do you support.

The default setting is iOS 15.

Here's the issue, currently iOS 15 has a "72% adoption rate" according to Apple.

Niche audiences are important. When your business is small (and bootstrapping) you want to be the best option for a few early adopters, not a mediocre option for masses.

You get the all important feedback from haters (they do care!), indifferent users are a lost cause.

In my first year as a full-time indie hacker:

🦠 Lost my main income source
🚀 Launched 4 times
💰 Managed $30K in revenue
❌ Still lost money

Here's a look at my story, struggles, and financial outcomes building a self-funded business in 2020:
I’ve found setting myself release deadlines—even though I have no external commitments—has done wonders for my productivity.

It’s easy to slack on these things as a solo founder, but it’s definitely helped me squeeze out this MVP.

Also: I will continue to build in public. So for the coming developments I’ll be posting more code and details ☺️
