6 months in: sharing my biggest mistakes (so far)

Jen @lunchbag

The official launch of Lunch Money was 6 months ago and since then, I’ve been sharing milestones on Indie Hackers, both big and small. But that’s hardly the full picture.

While I like the idea of sharing highlights regularly to keep morale up, I thought it would be a good time to reflect and start a periodic series on the biggest mistakes I’ve made (so far).

The TL;DR:
Here are the mistakes I've made:

  • Having an ill-prepared launch
  • Assuming user sentiment
  • Charging too low…
  • ...and charging too high
  • Offering too long of a free trial
  • Being too afraid to share my story
