Read online

Sorry I missed last week’s issue. Many interesting things happening at SharedBox. By the way, we sent an update email last week. In case you missed it, we added ticket status, response and resolution times and fixed a couple of bugs.

Issue 10 here, let’ get to it.

1. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Josh Pigford (Baremetrics) wrote an interesting thread about the fact that business decisions are not always black and white. Should you raise money? Should you get a cofounder? Should you charge more? Well…it depends. Totally unrelated but also see Tyler Tringas’ thread on charging more. #tweet

1/ The longer I play the SaaS game, the more my response to “what should I do about X?” is “¯\_(ツ)_/¯” or “just do whatever you want!” Early on I so desperately wanted answers to be black and white, but they just almost never are.”

2. The Ultimate Guide to Writing Online

David Perell wrote a guide about writing online. Long read but totally worth. #posts

Writing online is the fastest way to accelerate your career. It’s the best way to learn faster, build your resume, and find peers and collaborators who can create job and business opportunities for you.

3. They Won’t Come

Just another reminder by Helen Tran that building a good product is not enough. #posts

As you build it, tell people to come.

4. Creating Passionate Users: Be brave or go home

Important reminder that whatever you do, avoid mediocrity. Old post but good read. Interesting that Seth Godin’s blog was referenced in the post. You should also see this post by Seth on mediocrity: The first piece of tape. #posts

Just keep being brave and most importantly—when you start to have doubts about how far out-there you should go, and you’re imagining how the critics will burn you alive, just remember that the*worst*thing is being in the Zone of Mediocrity.That’s what we should all be afraid of.
