How To Think like a designer and act like an entrepreneur

A decade ago, I spent over $10,000, and more than 9 months of my time to create a software product that I never launched because it quickly became bloated with features and riddled with bugs.

A year later, I spent $47.50 to create and launch a product in 3 hours. It sold the first copy within 10 minutes. Today Keynotopia is being used by more than 100,000 designers, entrepreneurs and product managers all over the world, and was mentioned by thousands of influencers, bloggers and news outlets.

And last year, I spent 5 days to create PingTag without code, and got 5,000+ customers on launch day.

My journey from a full-time employee to a freelancer, to a failing entrepreneur, and to a successful one later has taught me valuable lessons that I wish someone had told me when I first started.
