How to make easy $10,000 in 3 simple steps

Unreadit/Indie Makers

"Indie makers", "Indie hackers", whatever you want to call us, this amazing community of digital entrepreneurs is growing by the day, and we're excited to be part of it.

Since launching "Boxy" a few years ago, we've never stopped working on side projects, even with day jobs. We recently quit our jobs to go all in on our side projects, so these are really exciting times for us.

Unreadit is the first product we're going to launch since we're full time. Follow us on Twitter for the ride: Fabrizio and Francesco.

Enjoy the issue!

Navigating the “experience economy” on the way to FIRE r/financialindependence   u/FIRE_At_Llama_Speed  

I wanted to write this post because I’ve seen a lot of posts from young people (late teens to mid-20s) who are on their journey to FIRE, who are struggling with finding the balance between “living now” and “saving for later”. There are a lot of posts from young people who want to save for their...

I have my entire year planned out, savings goals in place, and FIRE constantly on my mind. I'm determined but, then things like this happen:

I think now I understand why people hate Wordpress r/webdev   u/idk108

Now I received a task in my job and I have to update a website. I said "okay I will just find where...

It starts to crumble.

Or, rather..YOU start to crumble.

Our culture of entrepreneurship is always encouraging hustle, non-stop work and achieving big numbers.

That's beginner stuff.

If that's what you base your whole...

3 years ago, I was 🤬 of being a "business guy with an idea" and learned to code. Last week, I launched my first SaaS app. r/Entrepreneur   u/extrafoo

Business guys. You know, the Patagonia vest wearing tribe of people who have bold visions but can't tell you a thing until you have signed an NDA. The ones who are always one developer away from becoming a...

My cofounder created a tool to track website visitors in real time in Slack r/SideProject   u/i_dont_byte  

We created this for ourselves to understand where our traffic was coming from, which pages users were visiting and where they were dropping off. Might be useful for other early stage startups looking to understand their traffic. :)
