The Friday Dispatch
Hey folks,
Happy Friday!
Next week, you’ll be receiving news of the next MastermindJam Mastermind Sprint, include all the details for how it works, and a signup sheet to get started.
For those of you receiving this newsletter who are no longer MastermindJam members, keep your eye out for a special offer to participate in the six-week Mastermind Sprint.
On a personal note, I’m working on several lingering issues in MastermindJam.
Which is normal. Manageable, even.
Bugs, issues, changes—whatever we’re calling them—are to be expected in any app, of any complexity.
As your app comes into contact with real, live customers, they decide to try things in ways you didn’t expect. They make requests for features to work in new ways, and sometimes, better ways.
Other times, the underlying tech stack changes unexpectedly, causing other fires for you to put out.
I’m fine with all of that.
I’ve got 20-something years of dealing with that.
What is new to me, though, is how it impacts your confidence as you’re going about marketing-related tasks.
Talking to a prospect or looking into a camera while delivering a closing launch offer—all while knowing there’s a blemish on your product… it’s tough. To say the least.
It affects your confidence and momentum.
This is all normal, yes. But it’s humbling.
It’s part of the struggle of being a solo founder.
It’s also one of the many reasons why it’s SO IMPORTANT for solo founders (or indie makers, or side hustle entrepreneurs, you get it) to have a trusted mastermind group to share the journey with.
In the podcast episode I linked below, I share a brief story about how not having a group of entrepreneur peers to talk with about your business can really affect your decisions and your relationships with your family, friends, and team.
I hope you’ll give it a listen.
