How I became more mindful about how I spend ( * waste) my time on social media and how that time was put to better use, by building The CEO Library, is a subject that Indie Hackers recently wrote about.
Yesss, part of The CEO Library story was featured by Indie Hackers! A small part of it, for now. The complete interview will be released later this year (can’t say any more details for the moment, but I’ll sure keep you posted).
I’m a big fan of Indie Hackers community and been following it even before The CEO Library was born. It started as a website with stories of people who built businesses that are bootstrapped – indie, not VC funded. This point of view is contrarian to what the entrepreneurship world worships these days: that you need to raise a ton of money in a blitz and turn your company into a rocket ship (or burn to ground).
What’s fascinating about these stories is that people go into a lot of details. They share their revenue numbers, their thought process, how exactly they started, what mistakes they made, what resources they found valuable, and so on. They’re eager to share and help others succeed as well.
The team behind Indie Hackers obviously has the same values – Courtland, one of the co-founders, has been publicly sharing a lot about how he built Indie Hackers (btw, here’s an interesting interview with Courtland Allen, the co-founder of Indie Hackers – it’s from 2017, but evergreen).
In time, Indie Hackers grew into an amazing community of like-minded people. It also gave me a chance to meet some amazing people – some of them you already know from our series of book-talks– and even made new friends (hi, Mike! 😀 ).
