Creator to Community: Small Bets
💡 A new experiment, this time diving into how creators began community-powered businesses and how they run and grow them. Let me know what you think.
Daniel Vassallo is an Indie Hacker turned Small Bets community co-host.
He left behind a cushy software job seeking independence as a creator. His first app Userbase got a lot of coverage but wasn’t sustainable.
But he turned things around and now runs an online community for “small-time entrepreneurs” that earns over $400,000 per year with a growing membership of 4,500+ people.
