I will be posting here when I learn something new, post about my journey, or literally anything related to SaaS.


First thing I want to post is to seek capital gains insted of cash flow or passive income.

I need a co-founder.
~ said no technical founder ever.

If you are in the SaaS game for long term learn to code first.

I need a co-founder.
I'm not sure how other feel about this, I'm not sure how well companies can function with equal co-founders.

Someone in the end needs to make the executive decisions.

Also, excited to see what you come up with!

I believe that most of the time co-founder could be unnecessary while spliting nearly 50% of the profit Equity.
I have heard too many stories about bad founder and most of the time if a startup guy is saying he needs co-founder boil down to they want a full time employee without pay.

And in age of internet everything could be learned to a point of getting first 20 to 50 paying customers either its code or marketing. After that one can just hire or outsource


excited to see what you come up with!
Thanks, will keep you updated

Wrong - learn to market first. No Code (like Bubble) makes it possible to make web apps without knowing how to code. And you can make apps first.

Unless you're making the next Google, then marketing is way more important than tech skills.

Finding an audience who will pay is always the toughest part of running a SaaS.

I always wondered.

If said app built on Bubble works and works incredibly well to the point of generating revenue, how does one go about ownership of the app / selling?

You do not own the app with most app builders like these.

Yes marketing is important.
In business one should never completely outsource marketing and one should always be involved.

Selling is the most important thing one can do for a business.


My point is if anyone are doing this as first venture its easy to get overwhelmed with any code, APIs even HTML, and thinking of

Coming from a person who read ready fire aim twice,from a long term perspective one should learn to code as it does not take 1 year but 1 to 2 months.

I am familiar with nocode stuff as a developer i don't prefer it and it violates commandment of control.

I am more into capital gains than profit, which means i can sell the product.

In SaaS 20k mmr could be sold for a million dollar
