Powered by RedCircleNotify me on new episodes
Have you ever wondered about human achievements, societal norms, and different lifestyles? Today, I’ll be reflecting on these topics, specifically in the context of indie hacking. I’ll also share my thoughts on two inspiring documentaries that showcase individuals living extraordinary lives, and question why society often discourages deviating from the norm. We’ll then dive into my own indie hacking journey, discussing my product, PodSqueeze, and the challenges I faced with fake accounts. I’ll touch on my involvement in a community project and share my thoughts on changing the monetization model. Finally, I’ll discuss my lack of motivation and energy for certain projects, emphasizing the importance of quitting something that no longer brings joy.
