Inspired by the many others that have transparently built their businesses in public (, , , + , ), I'm doing so as well and putting my own spin on it. Fuel your voyeurism here:

Definitely happy where I am. There is no way that I can serve the kind of customers that would pay €5000 per month, they would require full time support.

If you don't have "supercharge your workflow" on your marketing site somewhere, are you even a SaaS company? Proud to finally reach this milestone :D

About five years ago I quit my unpaid job of personally and individually convincing every stranger on the internet that they were wrong and I have to say it's been refreshing.

You’re rarely first to think of your idea. Today someone showed me a business that is similar to , has been around since 2013 and charges €5000 a month. (Not a typo) There’s room in the market for multiple players. Focus on your customers and forge your own path.

I wish CEOs would push back on this stuff more but I guess out of professional courtesy you gotta give your new VP some breathing room 🤷🏻‍♂️

If so it was his predecessor looking to put her mark on the work of her predecessor, but she hadn’t anticipated how slow these things can move 😅

Almost every pointless rebranding exercise that makes you scratch your head can be traced back to a new senior hire shuffling things around at a surface level. It becomes their little pet project while the rest of the team gets on with the real work of actually delivering value.

“This is the moment in which we break free from defining the structure and the role of our offerings in terms that were invented by somebody else in a very different era” Translation: I’m a new VP at Google and introducing new icons was a lazy way of putting my mark on things.

Basic acquisition channels for tech solopreneurs: 🟢 SEO: Stable and scalable. Takes a long time to kick in. 🟠 Social: Scalable, but unstable. Can start working once you have a small audience. 🔵 Cold outreach: Stable, but hard to scale. Can start working from day zero.

I've lived this mistake fwiw. Spent the first few years of Ghost trying to get people to care that our product is open source and non-profit with a superior software license. Nobody cares about your virtue. Make a better product.

just having a flag that says "regular user" or "super user" is the easy bit, you then have to make sure your app behaves according to those rules and that's going to be different for every app.

auth + adding a team member to an existing account is the easy part :) it's everything else that's hard

Rails (and probably other frameworks) have before/after callbacks at the controller level that can make this a bit neater, redirecting non-permissioned users to somewhere appropriate etc. But at the view level there's no getting away from IF soup.

There are libraries that can provide the role management / permissions dashboard but ultimately it's down to you to add all the conditional / permissions-based redirects stuff in your app. The hard part is hard, there's no getting away from it.

Tweetagram 3.0 with video/animation is going to be pretty neat... 🤪

of all the little bits and pieces I've made for the Bannerbear marketing site, Tweetagram 2.0 is my favourite. I use it every day just to see how tweets turn out!
