Hey everyone, nice to meet all of you.
I’m in my early thirties, worked at a tech startup for the past 10 years, then got tired and quit almost 18 months ago — with the goal of making things by myself from then.
I’ve been enjoying funemployement for the first few months with a lot of voyages, and then I’ve started working on side-projects, alone or with some close friends.
Now, we’re getting serious about our projects, and want to turn them from fun to profitable.
We’re pretty open to how we’ll do that, but one thing for sure is we want to avoid the path of unicorns. So bootstrap it is.
We’ve already launched some projects:
- https://cashnotify.com: a macOS menubar to get Stripe notifications on your desktop
- https://inviterobot.com: a zero-setup widget to create subscription widgets for Slack communities (e.g. nomadlist)
- https://traveltoday.chat/: a slack community for long-term travellers
It’s been a whole lot of fun doing things by ourselves, but now I realize I miss connecting with other people, especially makers and product people.
So, hey — I hope to get connected with lots of you, to learn how to become somewhat good at marketing, and maybe teach a few thing here and there.
