I really don't get the hype around web3. (I was around for the advent of the web and and "web 2.0" and was excited about both) If you're a web3 believer, what's compelling about it for you?

If I was at a bigger company, trying to hire incredible "full stack" employees, here's what I'd do: 1. Go to communities like @IndieHackers, @megamaker. 2. Find indie creators earning $5k-12k/month from their projects. 3. Offer them a salary that's 2-3x their current revenue.

I used to invest heavily in marketing automation, tracking, attribution, configuring funnels, and retargeting. But after 13 years of doing marketing for SaaS companies... I'm convinced that 90% of it is unnecessary.

@adamwathan For me it'd be @TransistorFM. 😅 - Gradual-growth market (not a crazy rocketship) - Can be run by less than 5 people (ideal team size) - Good margins (financial, time, energy, maintenance) - A true calm company (very little drama) - Very few "lows" (much better than employment)

No matter your stage of life, the best advice is still: “do what you can, with what you have,” and “start now, start small.” I didn’t really start building indie projects until I was 33 (and had 4 kids aged 3-11). At the time I felt like I was behind; but I’m glad I started. ❤️

I’m not convinced that startups can solve for the “customers signing up and not using the product” problem. The motivation to use a product seems completely based on the forces in someone’s life. That “pull” has to be consistent/strong enough to translate into regular usage.

It’s ok if your idea fails. There’s no shame in trying something, and it not working out. If it’s not the right idea, the best thing you can do is let it go.

I know a bunch of incredible entrepreneurs whose original motivation was to “pay for diapers, day care, healthcare” for their kids. In my books, that makes them “the best founders.” 💯

To paraphrase @kylefox’s whole take: “Crypto could be big, but that remains to be seen. Either way, we’re probably at the “pets.com peak” of the hype cycle. Once this wave crashes, we’ll see if anything useful & enduring emerges.” ☝️ that’s a refreshing tone

It’s a great time to be in your 20s now. Indie SaaS is an established “thing.” It’s way more accessible. There’s a whole culture of young people starting companies. There’s a movement; it’s a pretty special time. (When I turned 20, MailChimp hadn’t even been founded yet)

Cool feature that allows you to legally use commercial music clips in your podcast (which hasn’t been possible up until now). BUT... this only works if you distribute your show exclusively to Spotify (won’t work with @ApplePodcasts, @OvercastFM, @pocketcasts, @CastroPodcasts). twitter.com/mignano/status…
