Last week one of my subscribers asked me two exciting questions:
- Apart from your article on the blog on how to buy your first side project, do you recommend any other resources for people who want to start investing in micro startups?
- Would you recommend non-developers invest in micro SaaS or do you think it’s a bad idea?
Here is my view on these things. First, you should define what you want to achieve and why you want to accomplish this. Earning millions is a great goal, but why do you need this money? To live life on your own terms? To be free from a day job? To change your lifestyle?
I recommend that non-technical people who want to change their lifestyle and become online entrepreneurs start buying and running micro-SaaS. Recently, I interviewed
an Iceland attorney who bought a micro-SaaS on Microns and became an entrepreneur. He worked tightly with sellers to understand how to run and maintain the project. In any case, you’ll learn many interesting things and unintentionally become a tech guy. So, everything depends on your desires and what you want to achieve.
I plan to keep writing content for people interested in entrepreneurship through acquisition. But besides this, I recommend you to read the Indie Hackers forum
and check this site
to find your first users. Also, I created the MicroStartups.co newsletter
, where we interview other founders so that you can learn many things in practice. If you prefer video content more, check Ryan Kulp’s courses (here
), a guy I trust.
That being said, it inspired me to create the whole post around this theme.
