Hi!

Here’s another small update from me.

🎓 Bootstrap MBA Progress

The launch of my Maker News didn’t go that well. It didn’t get a lot of attention. But I’m still happy that I built it because I learned a lot and I’m using it myself daily.

Hopefully my launch of Product Explorer today will go a bit better 🙂

It’s a database makers and indie investors can use to identify acquisition targets, to find abandoned projects that can be revived, and to develop a data-driven launch strategy.

I also published an article last week titled 6 Lessons I learned from Nathan Latka. I’ll probably turn this into some kind of “My mentors that I never talk to” series.

And yesterday I had my first guest (Mubashar Iqbal) on the Bootstrap MBA podcast. The episode will go live next week.

👍 My Favourite Things This Week


I enjoyed the article by Jon Myers on Bootstrapping in Saigon (even though I still have no intention of moving there). It’s always great to get a glimpse into other people’s lives.

Another fantastic article I stumbled upon is How to read self-help by Tom C. It’s great defense of self-help literature and contains insightful discussions of wisdom vs. knowledge, bad self-help vs. good self-help, among others.

🤔 Quote I’m Pondering


“Often the difference between a successful person and a failure is not one’s better abilities or ideas, but the courage that one has to bet on one’s ideas, to take a calculated risk—and to act.” - André Malraux
