I went to @MicroConf this week and it was amazing. I learned so much. Here are a few highlights! This thread will be useful to you if you are bootstrapping a business or you want to build a business on your own one day. #MicroConf 1/18
Everyone I met was great. They shared their ups & downs without hesitation. We didn’t talk about just business. We talked about work-life balance, breastfeeding, sleep training, traveling w/ kids and how loving your kids unconditionally goes a long way. #MicroConf 2/18
I always felt welcome to join an ongoing group conversation or to strike up a new one. People would open their circle immediately. #MicroConf 3/18
I met @mijustin!! I’ve been following him since 2015. I love how authenticate he is, how he goes out his way to help others & how he breaks down things into actionable steps. Definitely check out his talk on validating your product #MicroConf 4/18
If you are not familiar with @mijustin's work, take a look at:
- Marketing for Developers Book/Course:
- Product Validation Checklist:
- Build Your SaaS Podcast: #MicroConf 5/18
I want to write a book by the end of the year & @adamwathan’s talk on "Nailing your first launch" was exactly what I needed. If you are working on a book or a course for developers, his talk is a must: #MicroConf 6/18
Life’s been rough the past two years due to multiple miscarriages & a complicated pregnancy. My loss in productivity tanked. I wasn’t expecting this at a tech + startup conference but @garrettdimon talked about running @sifterapp and going through an amputation. #MicroConf 7/18
's shared his personal and business journey and it was incredibly inspirational! #MicroConf 8/18
said that “#MicroConf lets us lead the life we want to live. We can be more present for our families and our communities. It's not how you do it, it's why you do it.”. Yes! This is why I started. 9/18
I wish I attended #MicroConf and specifically @patio11’s talk "Your First 60 Days" about 3 years ago when I first decided that I wanted to start a business. I can’t do justice to Patrick’s talk in a tweet. Just go read ALL of the notes from his talk:… 10/18
It was great to meet @csallen. His talk on navigating the startup landscape was great. #MicroConf 11/18
is the founder of @indiehacker which is an incredible resource for aspiring entrepreneurs. Founders give their FULL story. They share specific details on what worked or didn’t work when building their business. #MicroConf 12/18
My biggest takeaways from #MicroConf are:
- I need to charge more money!
- I need to ask and accept help. I’ve gotten into this mentor role to help beginners who are learning to code that I’ve forgotten that I need help too to take my career to the next step. 13/18
My biggest takeaways from #MicroConf continued..:
- I've been trying to force things that are not working & ignoring opportunities that are staring at me 😀
- Things don’t change as fast as I think they do. Wordpress still runs a significant portion of the internet. 14/18
As is for most tech + startup conferences, there were few women attending #MicroConf. It's great that they have a diversity scholarship and I was fortunate to receive one. Thank you @SoloFounder and thank you @citadelgrad for sponsoring my ticket! I very much appreciate it. 15/18
is going to give out diversity scholarships again for next year’s conference in March. Keep an eye out for it on their mailing list or at @MicorConf. #WomenInTech #POCInTech #MicroConf 16/18
put together all of the notes from @MicroConf here: Thank you Christian for taking live notes! It was great to just focus on the talks and not get caught up in trying to take notes. #MicroConf 17/18
After an incredible event, I came back home yesterday to my baby girl. She touched my face for the first time 😊. It seems like she missed me! She reminded of why I want to start my own business in the first place. #MicroConf 18/18
Thank you @SingleFounder and @robwalling for an incredible event!! (Sorry. I was trying to finish up this thread before my baby woke up from her nap and I missed and got your handles wrong 😊)
