It was a shower thought idea

Bruno Raljic @brunor

I'm not a podcast guy. I'm not a youtube guy either. I'm not a recording guy. So, how did this happen?

I'll tell you how it happened. I'm kicking myself out of comfort zone, that's how it happened. I believe one way to make personal progress growth is to leave the comfort zone.

I've decided to start sharing process with you fellow indie hackers.

I wrote the main motivation on if you want to check.

I'll keep the general milestones here, and if you want all the juicy things, you can subscribe for the newsletter.


In short words, I have a remote casual talks with my guests and will be uploading it to YouTube. I'm creating a buffer of 3 episodes (2 recorded so far) and then I'll go public about the details who will be the guests. So far I can only share the episode topics.

Ep 1: Give what you want to receive
Ep 2: Communities before product
Ep 3: Newsletters are never out of fashion


This is a new thing to me and a funny journey. I will share ups and downs, observations and things that worked for me.

        There are two ways of being in comfort zone again.

        • stop doing things so you move while your comfort zone stays the same
        • embrace it and your comfort zone is moving/expanding while you're remaining your position
