Today we talk about a record breaking month for both of us, why it’s sometimes difficult to enjoy success as an indie hacker and I try and convince Dan not to start freelancing again.
What we covered in this episode:
Today's sponsor - Talk to Stefan
Talk to Stefan is coaching for founders by my good friend Stefan Manku (although he does work with some employees and/or managers) When you're feeling stuck, not sure which direction to go, feeling overwhelmed with too much to do or needing clarity, Stefan is the guy to call. He won't tell you what to do or how to do it... he'll ask questions, give you space and help you to find clarity.

Dan is the founder of a micro-SaaS studio called Monday, where he runs a portfolio of SaaS products currently doing $7k a month. This included ilo (Analytics for Twitter), a collection of products and themes for Ghost and Dan’s new referral product, Refermo, which he’ll be launching during this show. Last year, Dan left his job to pursue indie hacking full-time.
I’m at a slightly earlier stage than Dan, but also left my full-time job in 2021. I get most of my income producing podcasts for clients but it’s my aim to turn my own podcast into a profitable, sustainable business. I run the Indie Bites show, which is 15 minute conversations with indie founders, currently doing about $700 a month in revenue. I also have a podcast course called 2HourPodcast and a handmade leather wallet business, both of which I’d like to grow over the year.
