📚 — "The Mom Test" Weekly #bookclub!

John Saddington @8bit

I've got a weekly bookclub that kicks off today! Feel free to sign-up!

We're chatting through the The Mom Test — we'll be doing it every week!

I'd love for you to join! I also host a few other free workshops as well, including a very fun "How to Start a Startup"!

Talk soon?

        seriously? cool. I mean the amount of people I'm sending towards the book, I guess this is his community :D

        1. 7

          I am here!

          1. 2

            omg. but what are you doing here?

            1. 4

              Partly working on my own little publishing/software business (currently bootstrapped and profitable with a team of three) and partly sticking around to answer questions and be helpful about mom test, custdev, or whatever else I can help out with.

              1. 1

                so when building your business, did you follow the mom test? :D

                1. 1

                  Of course :). But it probably didn't look like you might expect. Even though I talk about "keeping it casual" and "incognito conversations" throughout the book, everyone still thinks that custdev has to involve a bunch of formal meetings. When I do it, it just looks like I'm chatting to a friend about their work over a coffee. So it's easy to miss.

                  1. 1

                    Please attach the project to your profile so we can follow :)

                  2. 1

                    nice. So what are you building now? Since you haven't listed it under your projects :)

                    1. 1

                      Some tools for indie and self-pub authors. First one (just went "live" yesterday, but still working out some issues and haven't told anyone) helps with gathering feedback from beta readers; second is for page layout (has some tech challenges to feel polished, will be a couple more months). I'll probably list them once they has some revenue, but still a month or two away from that, at the earliest.

              2. 1

                still building! keep going!

          2. 2

            I really want to read this after hearing all the positive comments in IH.

            In the US at Amazon, it cost $27.47. Wondering is there any exclusive offers available. Thanks.

            1. 2

              I don't have a way to do Amazon discounts, but you can get $5 copy of the PDF at https://gum.co/momtest/ih (just type a 5 in the price box), or you should be able to get the audiobook "free" from Amazon for wigh an audible trial/subscription.

              1. 1

                Thanks. Bought the PDF version.
