Making $280k in Four Weeks with Traf

Episode #179

Traf (@traf) is a designer and a serial indie hacker. Just over a month ago, he made over $100,000 in a week. No, not by selling a course or a book to some email list he spent months growing. He did it by whipping up some icons and putting them online. It barely took him two hours. In this episode, Traf and I discuss how to get lucky by both spotting and capitalizing on opportunities, the importance of no-code tools and a clear schedule to help you execute quickly when the time is right, and the power of permissionless marketing for reaching audiences much bigger than your own.

    🔥 Great interview! … he had a lot to say. I didn't know he made super.so as well. Good discussion about "luck" and serendipity. I think he said both:

    “Luck favors people in motion.”

    “Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity.”

    I like these:

    “Lucky? … Yah, it seems like the harder I work, the luckier I am ;)”

    “A lot of people never find luck because it's dressed in overalls and looks like work.”
