Show Notes

In this episode, Bryan and Malcolm provide updates on their products and share their learnings and thoughts on the ups and downs that comes with being a startup founder/entrepreneur, how that affects you and your family, and how to separate work/startup life from family time.

Malcolm wrapped up his first 2-week (bug) sprint, despite his power being shut off often due to load shedding (rolling blackouts). For the next two weeks, he'll be focusing on product features, before starting a marketing sprint in mid-November.

Bryan has officially partnered up on the startup he was test driving, and is excited to tackle some of the challenges that come with trying to turn a Productized Service into a SaaS (over time).

About this podcast:

We're Bryan and Malcolm, a couple of dads sharing our journey about bootstrapping our indie businesses while still prioritizing our young families.

Our goal is financial and location independence, but not at the expense of our families, our kids' happiness, or our relationships.

That doesn't mean we won't work hard and hustle in order to get things off the ground, but our priorities will always be family-first.

We believe that you can bootstrap a successful SaaS, Freelance, or Indie business while still enjoying the family life. We're here to share our learnings as we build our businesses from scratch.
