Since it’s been a few weeks since my last post in this series, I’m posting more than the regular 5 links that I usually do. This week you’ll find popular links on sales channels, growth hacking, coding practices, entrepreneurship, web design conferences, Product Hunt, free stock photos, MailChimp, and product design principles.

How I almost shipped a product every month in 2015

By admin on December 29th, 2015 in Updates

Near the end of 2014 I decided I wanted to try something different. In the past, I’ve mainly focused on freelance work to make a little extra money on the side and have a creative outlet outside of the day job. After almost 10 years of following this pattern, I decided I wanted to make a change. Instead of focusing on freelance work I wanted to focus on my own projects. The main reasons for this was that I was tiring of constantly having to do the same amount of work for around the same amount of pay. I was looking for ways to work less but keep my side income where it was or even increase it. The other reason I was looking for a change was boredom. I think we can all agree it can be exciting to start your own projects where you don’t have to answer to a client and you have the creative freedom to do what you want.
