Stand up: Who's hustling on Saturday?

What will you accomplish by end of November?

What did you do yesterday to work toward your goal?

What will you do today?

  1. 4

    Off days are for the weak!

    • November - Finish database schema and database querying algo

    • Yesterday - compiled a list of profiles of industry professionals/social media influencers who would use my SaaS product so I can conduct primary market research - make sure what I'm envisioning is valuable by tailoring it to my target demographic's needs

    • Today - Continuing to build this list so that I have 100 people by Monday

  2. 4
    • NOV - Get customers to achieve their 1st success w/ the pilot. Then validate the "1 thing" that'll become the MVP and define its feature set.

    • YESTERDAY

      • Analyze all pilot customers' feedback.

      • Draft/schedule emails to cold leads.

      • Pilot customer meeting.

    OK, first round trip leg of my weekend travels complete :) I used my Magnus Rush podcast app to take some voice memos as I was listening to the IH podcast, so they got transcribed and emailed to me. So happy I built that functionality haha. I needed some time to think about next steps and unpack my apprehensions a little, and it helped quite a bit. So I'm modifying my November goal, but will treat the original as a stretch goal.

    November Goals

    • Set up a plan to turn Announcr into a SaaS business, and remove the current restriction of needing a physical location, thus supporting online businesses as well.

    • Launch lead capture site with streamlined messaging.

    I am doing this so I can begin to talk to customers, both local and online, and begin to test out methods of customer acquisition very heavily in December. I had some theories, but also really need some marketing/sales automation to help jumpstart the growth, as I've been overbooked in the dayjob.

    This weekend I will get my transcription notes into stories in Clubhouse and clear the slate of current stories. Hoping to draw the line from 0 to 1 with some pretty well defined Epics so I can just walk that path over the next 2 months.
