Build & Launch

Two heads are better than one!

Show Notes

This week Justin teams up with his friend Marty to build and launch a web application called Network Effects.

Were they able to launch in time?

Community update:
On burnout
It doesn't do you any good to burn yourself out and end up in bed... or worse, a hospital bed.
Did they launch?

YES! Network Effects launched to 10 beta testers on Thursday. You can sign-up for the beta here:

  • 2-3 hours a night (each): 14-21 hours total for the week (each).
  • Costs: $100 / month for Heroku, SSL, hosting for the marketing site, private GitHub
The next Build & Launch product

A lot of listeners have said they'd be interested in me partnering with someone else, and helping them launch a product in 7 days.

My buddy Adam Clark needs help - he needs to launch his course, Irresistible Podcasting, in about a week. I asked him if he wanted to do a one week "Build & Launch" sprint with me, live on air. He said yes.

What is Build & Launch?

A weekly podcast focused on shipping small projects.

Every week I'll take you on an adventure of launching a new project. You'll hear the launch stats, hurdles I had to overcome, and how you can learn from my mistakes.
