Discover One Amazing Creator Everyday #Creator22

Hello Friends,

We all know about unicorns, but who might have thought of unicorns with a twist in it 😉.

Today’s Story about a creator who ships funny ideas every other week, an amazing man who believes in building fast and shipping fast. I’m unveiling his secrets today, you all better stay with me.

Let’s discover the journey of this amazing creator.

Whit is currently building Bad Unicorn(A product studio x newsletter that launches bad/funny businesses every other Friday).

Q. What’s that one thing you want to achieve in 2021?

A. A lofty goal but one that is in my head is I want to grow our email subscriber list to 100k by the end of 2021.

Q. What’s the one mistake you have done and will advice others not to repeat that?

A. Don’t hold back what you’re building. Tweet about it, launch it, tweak it. I launched 3–4 pretty “bad” projects before I built one that got a little traction. I don’t regret any of those projects, but I was fearful and slow on shipping some of them. I was scared of what people would think, but people didn’t really care. They are busy doing other things. There’s nothing wrong with launching something and hearing crickets. Just keep shipping things, and you’ll find what’s right for you.

Q. What do you love to do when not working? Any hobbies you want to share?

A. I love playing chess, exercising, hanging with friends, I watch a ton of YouTube content, comedy shows/videos.

Q. What’s something you learnt/realized recently that you wish you learnt/realized much earlier?

A. People don’t really care what you’re doing. For a long time, I was afraid to ship products because I was afraid of people would say it’s bad and that be a reflection of me. Now I know people are too busy and don’t really care so ship it anyways. Same with clicking send on an article or blog or tweet.

Q. Which book you are reading these days? Which Genre excites you the most?

A. I am rereading the Almanack of Naval Ravikant. It’s so great. I love business/self-improvement books most.

Q. Which book/concept has influenced you the most in how you live your life?

A. One inflection point book was Tools of Titans by Tim Ferriss — made me really think about how I wanted my life to go. The book that has helped me the most is James Clear’s Atomic Habits. It gave me systems to better myself in small ways and over time that has changed me into a better person.

Q. What would you recommend others who are looking to start their careers in the startup/SaaS space on how to go about it?

A. Build something as fast as possible and share it with the world! That could be a landing page, waitlist or the full MVP product if you can. The more launches you rack up, the more you’ll learn — at least that’s how I learned. Also build things that you like, even if the idea is super silly or niche. If you love baseball, build a product for baseball card collectors. If you love Rick and Morty, build a fun product based on the show. Whatever it is, hopefully, it’s something you enjoy.

Q. Suppose there is a big whiteboard in front of you. What’s the first line you would like to write?

A. “Smile. Happiness is usually a choice.”
