Just do it! launched my ebook and got 2 sales in 10mins!

Jamal Mashal @jamalx31

2 days ago I posted Should I try to sell my first ebook?. I was almost sure nobody would pay for something I wrote!

Thanks to @AndrewKamphey, @brunor, @Betilfan, and @robmerki for their encouraging comments. I said to myself: "fu*ck it, just do it".

I put together a page on Gumroad and shared it with a friend asking for feedback. and then he replied with "Oh snap! Solid man. Bought it." I was like WTF, I just asked for feedback. And then he tweeted it and another sale came in! 🤯

Probably the best 20$ I made in my entire life. This is the first money I make as an Indie Hacker! and now I'm excited more than ever to deliver this book! If you want to grab yourself a copy or leave me some feedback please check it out here:

And for daily indie hacker adventures 🚀, you can find me on Twitter

    Just pre-ordered your book. Waiting for it to release. Honestly, you spoke directly to me. I’m sure I will get good value out of the $10 I invested for now.

    Keep pushing mate. You’re now at $30
