SaaS Founder Gems πŸ’Ž

There aren’t enough hours in the day to read through everything on Twitter, IndieHackers, Hacker News, etc and not miss anything.

Some of what I see (or have bookmarked over the years) is different than what you’ve seen, and I want to share it with you. I’m going to be sending out a new weekly newsletter I’m calling “SaaS Founder Gems πŸ’Ž”. It’ll simply be little nuggets and links I’ve found useful to me, as an aspiring SaaS founder.

“What is this all about and why should I care?”

In late June, 2021, I quit my job at Amazon to pursue my life-long dream of running my own SaaS. I watched my Dad start his company as kid and have wanted to do the same for 30 years. I now have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to go full-time on my idea, for up to a year (probably not enough time, I know), so I’m going for it!

I’ll post updates and learnings here as I go. To learn more about what drives me and why, you can read about it in “What’s this all about?” or read the short version in the Twitter thread, below:
