I'm your host James McKinven, I'm the founder of a podcasting company called Striqo
and passionate indie hacker.
Now I love long podcasts and what Courtland Allen has done with the Indie Hackers show
, but this podcast will just supplement that. With less commuting, we now have less time to listen to podcasts and those long, albeit interesting, backstories. I'll aim to cut to the chase and find out what it really takes to build a sustainable, profitable business on the side.
I'm James, I run a podcast company called Striqo and I love hearing about the ups and downs of what it takes to be an indie hacker.
I'm a fellow indie hacker and side-project-starter and I love hearing the stories of other makers who have started their businesses while working a full-time job.
Whether that's a small little earner on the side or something that has grown into tens of thousands of ££ income that means you could quit your job.
Having started many of my own side-projects I know how hard it is to get it off the ground and generate revenue. I wouldn't have been able to make progress on any of my projects if it wasn't for the kindness and support I've received from everyone in the Indie Hackers community.
Everyone has a story to tell, advice they can give and lessons to teach - I want to share them with as many people as I can.
I hope you can join me for this podcast talking to our favourite indie hackers.
