👍 recommend!
The book is an Introduction to a mindset of creating a minimalistic but profitable company. Gumroad serves as a case example to comprehend do’s and don’ts, and as a manifestation of Sahil’s mindset transition. The goal is not to make a dent in the universe but to solve a problem people are willing to pay for and enable you the life you want to live.
