Find below some take-aways 👇
🤓 About his first product:
"I launched it in beta, sent some emails and I had some of my friends using it, but I never got to the stage where I was comfortable with it to launch it to everybody and support it... so I abandoned it shortly after."
🚀 Lessons learned from launches:
"95% of the time you will not get the expected results from your launch. Once I reached the top one on HackerNews... The bad part is that somehow my sign up stopped working and it was at night so I missed tons of users 😓"
🤕 On abandoning projects
"I've had at least two projects that I abandoned and a year later, someone built them and made tons of money out of them 😅 The idea was right, you just have to put more to it than just developing features."
🧾 Marketing as a developer:
"Technical people get the energy from writing features or writing code and the other processes like marketing, sales, and user research drain our energy. I gradually started doing some market analysis and researching my target audience."
"Sticking to something is one of the hardest things to do. There are makers doing 12 startups in 12 months... that's valid when you don't have anything to work on but I think it's best to stick to something. Most of the time is going to take at least a year."
