The Single Founder Handbook


#1

Hi all,

Mike Taber (Co-host of Startups for the Rest of Us, MicroConf and the Micropreneur Academy/FounderCafe) just launched his book “The Single Founder Handbook”.

I guess you all might be interested: http://www.singlefounderhandbook.com/

Cheers,
Christoph

Can you provide a brief review of this book?

Last I encountered Mike, he was having trouble getting a product off the ground. Has he managed to launch a successful product yet?


#3

He’s been full time on http://www.auditshark.com for a while now.


#5

I wouldn’t say that!

They are both equal partners, in both Micropreneur and the Startup podcast.

Not only that, Mike is very helpful every time I’ve emailed him (as is Rob).

I think that is a bit harsh. I bought the book and are a few chapters in and found it very interesting. Even if I learnt nothing (unlikely) I still think it is a good read about his journey. The book is not a bible or A to Z on how to be successful bootstrapper, there is no such thing, it is just some useful info on how one man did it, what worked for him and what didn’t.


#7

That’s pretty harsh and not the kind of tone I like to see in a community that’s very much about helping one another out.

Mike’s a smart guy and seems to be doing ok for himself.


#8

Agreed. I flagged that comment as inappropriate.


#9

I removed the comment. We’re all in the same boat, so let’s try to keep things civil. Fine line between constructive criticism that’s helpful and … all that.

It’s a good read. Packed with lots of solid advice. One way of describing it is “Startups for the rest of us” podcast condensed into book form.
