Got interviewed by IH about how I grew Thankbox

Valentin Hinov @ValCanBuild

I was super happy to be invited to do an interview with IH about my journey building Thankbox.

I spent a lot of time on it and aimed to capture as much of the important details of my journey as I could. I hope it serves as inspiration for others here.
