    EXECUTION Creating an SaaS startup without being able to code.

    Time for a quick update: I hope everyone is keeping well and hanging in there. 2020 has been my most successful year to date. I've doubled the size of the business since January. I've had a breakthrough with my sales game. I realized I was talking myself out of a lot of sales because I wasn't...

    EXECUTION Creating an SaaS startup without being able to code.

    Don't worry about derailing the thread, it's a great question! The answer is yes and no, I leveraged my initial value and time to gather the money, then put in money to create a product that provides more value. If you need need money for these items you need to look and see what value you...

    EXECUTION Creating an SaaS startup without being able to code.

    Welcome to the grind... I didn't know what I wanted to do and I thought 50K sounded like a good number to have saved. In the end I managed to surpass that and saved up 65k before leaving my job at the time. If you can't afford it you only have two options. One would be try and find someone who...

    EXECUTION Creating an SaaS startup without being able to code.

    Creating this execution thread is probably one of the best decisions I ever made and over a year since my last post. It's amazing to be able to look back and see where I was a year ago compared to where I am today. A few weeks before I wrote my last update in October 2018 I felt I had pretty...

    Needed: SAAS subscriber agreement

    I have a very straight forward contract service agreement that I just had drawn up for me. I can share it with you if you'd like. It's simple and to the point, for a MVP it's probably all you need to get started. Originally I tried to mix and match different contract service agreements that I...

    Give content and sales will follow - ideas

    I just came across this issue recently myself. I was making the product the hero of the content and not the customer. "Building A Story Brand by Donald Miller". It highlights making the product the hero and not your customer as a common mistake when selling/creating content for customers...

    Mental Health and Entrepreneurship

    I definitely can relate to this. My progress thread is an amazing tool for me as its a point of reference and grounding for when I start to loose sight of the goal and progress I've made towards it. Also grounding because I can see where I made mistakes, underestimated myself, underestimated a...

    EXECUTION Creating an SaaS startup without being able to code.

    A well overdue update: I think its safe to say I had lost my direction motivation and confidence a bit this year. I took some time away from this project to try and reignite the passion and desire to continue with it. The time away helped. I managed to get some breathing room from the project...

    EXECUTION Creating an SaaS startup without being able to code.

    Its more of an "I was winging it and didn't have a clear concise and consistent message along with an unfinished product". I had a website it just wasn't good for what I had moved on to. No pictures of the software no real explanation of what it does how it saves time money etc. I didn't offer...

    EXECUTION Creating an SaaS startup without being able to code.

    The SASS with development costs it breaks even right now. If and when I can cutback on development costs and move more towards maintenance it will make a small profit as it currently stands. The sales process is what I'm working on at the moment and is a large part of what I'm referring to when...

    EXECUTION Creating an SaaS startup without being able to code.

    Ok time for a short update: Haha the last few months feel like I've been working really hard for little or no reward. Just seems to be the way when running your own business sometimes. I'm hoping that the hard yards gained in the last few months will pay dividence down the road. The software...

    EXECUTION Creating an SaaS startup without being able to code.

    Good question. The project was all about going from 0 to 1, now its about going from 1 to N. So still plenty for the devs to do, most of the work will revolve around optimization of the current code and clean up of features based on feedback from current customers. I also want to enhance the...

    EXECUTION Creating an SaaS startup without being able to code.

    Hi all, its been an while since I've made an update. I'm one feature away from being finished my MVP!! The project is under budget and 2months ahead of schedule but I'm sorry to say I didn't reach my goal of getting 10 clients by end of year. I knew it was ambitious but if you're going set a...

    EXECUTION Creating an SaaS startup without being able to code.

    Thanks for the feedback. I worked a six figure job where I saved money specifically for starting a business. My living are costs low, my truck is bought and paid for and cheap rent helps too. I have a social life but I don't smoke or drink. I had people outside of the project who wanted to...

    EXECUTION Creating an SaaS startup without being able to code.

    Hey guys thanks for the feedback and taking the time to reply to the thread. Things have slowed up a little for now. Projects tend to have a cycle of expanding (everything moves quickly, new sections of software rolled out, testing and then feedback) then solidifying (everything moves slower...
