SaaS Side Projects

The idea of having a software as a service product sound great, doesn't it?

 Solve a problem with software. Have a nice looking landing page and website. Get paying customers.

 Eventually have it make enough revenue so you can turn it into your primary source of income. 
There's a lot of software talent out there. We could solve lots of problems. 
 But going from idea to product to first customer is non-trivial. 
 Especially as a side hustle. 
 This episode discusses some of the hurdles from idea to first customer.

  • finding time to work on things
  • prioritizing and planning
  • learning while building
  • even utilizing third party services to allow you to launch faster
  • and last, but not least, having fun
