Do I have to build a tech product to #buildinpublic?

I don't think so.

My product is my newsletter and I'll build it in public.

Do you know any examples of "non-tech" product builders who share their journeys?

Is there an "official" way to run @supabase within a test env?

Seems like I should use the supabase cli, but I'm not sure how to get the connection information after running `supabase start`

#saas #buildinpublic #learninpublic #solopreneur #indiehackers #3projectsin3months
Made some custom forms to sign up, sign in, and reset password using @MaterialUI (Auth is through @supabase 😁)

This is the PoC for sign up flow!

When you build a "free tool" for marketing purposes and it's named something different than your normal business, do you create a separate email system or just connect it with your main business? #buildinpublic #solopreneur
The worst thing about being a solopreneur is that I'm never off-duty.

Are you a #solopreneur or an #indiehacker building something in public?

Have you used madepublic.io to give yourself a place to track your product changes, connect with other builders and also cross-post your updates to Twitter for free?

#buildinpublic
Would folks be into a co-working stream on twitch?

Probably just me coding, listening to music, chatting every now and then. πŸ€·πŸŽΆπŸ’»

At last! After some wrestling with CI/CD stuff... there is a landing page for Yet Another Link Shortener!

yetanotherlinkshortener.com

(Feel free to make fun of it 🀣)

#saas #buildinpublic #learninpublic #solopreneur #indiehackers #3projectsin3months
Ahh yes, make sure you use the `NEXT_PUBLIC_` bit to include env variables in the browser for @nextjs .....

It only took me 30 mins to figure it out πŸ˜…πŸ˜…πŸ˜…

Anyone have thoughts on @supabase auth with email-password vs magic links?

I haven't used magic links before and the look awesome!

Alrighty, I have this idea: I'm going to build 3 SaaS products in 3 months. Who's in?

My goal is to learn while building them and share what I learn 😁

I tried out TikTok's text-to-image A.I background generator and here's what it thinks a dark content marketing village looks like.

What are you doing today?

Here is my list:
Started coding my next app this week.

What's first? The PVP!

#buildinpublic #solopreneur #saas #coding
A material on prime strategies I used to make $1000 MRR from my tech blogs is in the works.

Would you like to have it?

Balance is lame. Counter Balance is lit. Let yourself get lost for asymmetric results. When you're done, come back and counter balance your life. #solopreneur #startup #product #engineering #programming #productivity #mindset #buildinpublic #SaaS
Adverts on my tech media platform earned $189 in 2 weeks of August.

#buildinpublic #solopreneur
Key Takeaways:
βœ… Cold outreach is not that hard, just be honest and try to genuinely help.
PS: Only contact people your product can help, it's more efficient.
#buildinpublic #buildinginpublic #solopreneur
#indiehacker #indiehackers
Update:
βœ… Fixed A bug that allowed the search to access private fields
βœ… Talked to 5 people about the product
#buildinpublic #buildinginpublic #solopreneur

Key Takeaways:
βœ… vanity work doesn't lead to a faster launch (I really need to focus on only the core functionality)
βœ… I discovered having a landing page to collect emails is important to building in public
#buildinpublic #buildinginpublic #solopreneur

Update:
βœ… Changed the UI and integrated dark mode

Don't burn out. The solopreneur game is all about finding your spot and doing the simple, right thing longer than anyone else. #solopreneur #startup #product #engineering #programming #productivity #mindset #buildinpublic #SaaS
If you’re a #solopreneur, you must be good at daydreaming!

Often, being able to daydream about the end game and physically feeling the emotion is the only positivity you have to push you forward.

Does anyone else agree?

#positivity #startups #buildinpublic

I don't march to this mentality 100%, but it is a fitting description for a #solopreneur.

"I'm running on 2 hours of sleep, 4 cups of coffee, and an effing dream! Baby, let's go!"

#startup #buildinpublic
A wild 7am meeting appeared (Pokemon reference).

A new reason for me to want to work for myself in the future. Control over my schedule.

The kicker, I didn't say 1 word during the meeting. I literally didn't need to be there.
