I’ve had this idea rumbling around in my head for a while. It’s a fun topic and I knew it could save people time and stay focused on their most important work.

November 8, 2020 Finished the MVP

Today is the final day of the Gumroad 14 Day Product challenge, so I made a push to complete all the open tasks for the MVP.

I wanted to hold myself to finishing in 14 days, despite all the crazy events of the past two weeks.

I'll continue editing and working on additional text expander snippets to include in the bonus files until launch day, November 18.

November 6, 2020 Launched presale for the book

After 10 days of working on the guide, I launched presales and announced to my audience.

The presale page is live now: https://gum.co/typlss
Here's the thread where I described the guide and why I created it: https://twitter.com/billboulger/status/1324776287941152769

The guide will cost at least $9.99 later, but I set a presale price of $4.99 to thank early purchasers for their support.

October 26, 2020 Came up with my idea

I am participating in the Gumroad 14 Day Product challenge.

The first two days of the challenge focused on defining your audience and brainstorming ideas. Today, I settled on my idea.

I will be writing a guide book about using text expander shortcuts for increased productivity. The guide will come with bonus files that will allow purchasers to copy and paste example text expanders into the application of their choice.

I'll focus on providing value that can save someone 10-15 minutes per day, in exchange for a reasonable price. I will attempt to make it breezy and fun, maybe even throw in a couple of easter eggs.
