Interviewed for the IH podcast!

Sarah Hum @sarah

I joined Indie Hackers over two years ago when I quit my full time job to start Canny. Since then, I've listened to many podcasts from some truly amazing founders. I love how insightful they are and how they take you on the founder's journey.

When I got the email from Courtland to go on the podcast I was a bit shocked, to be honest. I even left it in my inbox for A MONTH (sorry Courtland) before getting over myself. I was nervous! I'm not a natural speaker and everything "public" gives me anxiety.

I guess that's something else I've learned. The stuff that takes you out of your comfort zone are often the most rewarding. I never imagined I'd be on the other side: giving advice and sharing my story on the IH podcast. This is definitely a milestone for me.

I hope those of you that listen take something away from it ❤
