First off, this is a night and weekends project. So the fact I carved out 14 hours of my week last week feels awesome. That I've continually done that 3 weeks in a row after fit and starts last year feels epic. What's different? Well Building in public for one.
Anyhow, I'm posting these on Twitter and my blog (https://bryansmith.io/Interweave-Progress-Reports-Build-In-Public) but thought I'd start being more active on IH now too.
Another great week of proving that 🐢 > 🐇. It's amazing what you can do if you string enough 1 hour chunks together. That said, Interweave is still far from an MVP. Today it's basically a note taking app (and only a mediocre one at that). However, the foundation is essentially done!
That is a milestone!
On the manager side lots of audience building this week. Really excited about the progress here. But I think the biggest thing to highlight this week is progress in Jobs to be Done thinking. I rewrote the byline to the Interweave website to read:
Before Interweave: You've got too many spreadsheets, notes, and tools. You know a customer said it but can't remember where. You think you're making the right call but can't quickly show why. After Interweave: You've taken control back and now your whole team understands why things are on the roadmap. The evidence is at their fingertips.
I wanted to highlight the customer as the hero in a journey. Where they started (pains) and what they've been able to achieve. As I was looking at ways on how to write this out I saw Basecamp's website and blatantly "borrowed" the Before/After format. It's just a v1, but I like this SO much better than the previous feature statement.
Anyways onto the report! The stats below are only things relating to audience and company building. (e.g. I didn't count my tweets on Brady beating Rogers 😂🏈)
