A working product and paying customers in just 11 days!

In This Episode...

  • An interview between Dan and Ben Mann showcasing some of the great results Ben has been achieving lately with his products Playgroup and Tinylog.

Key Take-Aways

Ben shares a number of excellent ideas and tips about:

  • The benefit of launching your product to a single first customer and focusing on them to ensure the product is working well and they are getting value.
  • Getting up early in the day to get a good block of uninterrupted time to make progress.
  • Tackling more difficult things first and leaving smaller/easier jobs for moments when you're just not feeling it.
  • Enjoying yourself and finding fun by doing things you've never done before.
