Hi Indie Hackers 👋.
I just listened to Courtland's recent podcast with Evan Britton and thought it was great! Evan explains how deeply focusing on one thing (Famous Birthdays) helped him tremendously when building his business.
It seems like that advice is opposite to the "small bets" idea floating around if I'm understanding it correctly. I've seen other Indie Hackers who I look up to (like @dvassallo) discuss how small bets can help you find a winning idea faster, reduce risk, and build a portfolio of assets.
So which do you prefer? I've been thinking about starting an overall company to house a number of small bet ideas I have, but Evan's great advice has me curious if others have found more success focusing deeply on one idea at a time.
