Currently, in 2019, I'm building a podcasting platform with my friend Jon Buda. It's called Transistor.fm . We provide podcast hosting and analytics for creatives, brands, and organizations.
We've been working on it since the beginning of 2018. We hit $15k in MRR in May of 2019.
Professionally, I’ve been working with SaaS companies since 2008. I was the Product Manager at two startups (Sprintly and Mailout), and have consulted on marketing & growth for companies in London, San Francisco, Boulder, and Portland.
My blog , podcasts , and videos focus on topics like product marketing, traction, finding out what people want, idea validation, and mental health.
I also run MegaMaker (a community for bootstrappers) and wrote Marketing for Developers and Jolt , which have sold 6,000+ copies.
Every Saturday morning I send an email to my list. I talk about bootstrapping, making stuff with computers, and earning a living on the internet.
